More than ever, the actions of government impact the business strategy and decision-making of manufacturers, developers, and the food and agriculture industries. Wes’s practice is dedicated to guiding businesses in these sectors through their interactions, negotiations, and disputes with the government to achieve successful outcomes. His practice has a particular emphasis on environmental law and land use regulation.

At the state level, Wes defends clients facing enforcement actions and litigates appeals for clients who receive adverse decisions from administrative agencies. Wes also advocates for clients before the Wisconsin State Legislature and executive branch. He has significant experience drafting legislative proposals and administrative rules to help clients reach their public policy goals. Wes often advises companies and trade associations on political law compliance, including issues relating to campaign finance, lobbying, and ethics.

Nationally, Wes works with manufacturers, landowners, the paper and pulp industry, and other businesses to enforce their rights under national environmental laws including CERCLA, RCRA, and the Clean Water Act. Wes also has experience in municipal law. He represents clients before zoning boards, plan commissions, and other local government entities.

Prior to joining DeWitt, Wes served as a staff attorney in the civil division of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court and as a legislative aide in the office of the Wisconsin Senate President. During law school, Wes was the Executive Articles Editor of the Loyola University Chicago Law Journal.
