Michael Best Attorney Joseph L. Olson, who was recently named one of Law360's 2015 Rising Stars, was featured in the article "Rising Star: Michael Best's Joseph Louis Olson" on April 17, 2015.

"Michael Best & Friedrich LLP’s Joseph L. Olson has played a key role in altering public-sector collective bargaining in Wisconsin and helped the firm expand its government relations efforts, making him one of Law360’s top employment attorneys under 40.

The 38-year-old partner, litigator and Rising Star — one of only five on Law360’s roster of up-and-coming employment attorneys — was appointed by Governor Scott Walker to offer legal advice in the administration’s bid to reform the state of collective bargaining in the public sector, and from there helped challenge Milwaukee’s mandatory paid sick leave law. Building off his successes in both areas, Olson helped Michael Best form Michael Best Strategies, a growing government relations subsidiary for which he serves as vice president."
