Stroud, Willink & Howard, LLC is pleased to announce that the firm has elected Attorney Joseph P. Bartol as its Managing Member. Joe has been with the firm since 1994 and succeeds Attorney Robert R. Stroud, who has stepped back from the position after 23 years of outstanding leadership.
Joe specializes in complex transactions and is known to his peers for his detail-oriented solution-driven approach to the practice of law. Joe has been recognized numerous times over the course of his career by Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America for his outstanding legal services and was named a “Top Lawyer” by Madison Magazine in Real Estate Law. Joe’s clients appreciate his ability to anticipate their needs and craft strategies for their long-term success. Joe hopes to capitalize on those strengths in his new role as Managing Member.
“Having worked with Joe for over twenty years, I am delighted to see him take over as our firm’s Managing Member,” said Rob Stroud. “Joe is a thoughtful, hard-working attorney and I am confident that his leadership will enhance our firm’s delivery of legal services to our clients.” Rob will maintain an active practice, providing sophisticated estate planning and business guidance to his clients.
This transition in firm management comes as Stroud, Willink & Howard celebrates its 125th anniversary. Joe looks forward to continuing Stroud’s proud history of providing outstanding legal representation to the firm’s clients, large and small, throughout Dane County and Wisconsin. “I’m honored to be part of the Stroud tradition and I enthusiastically accept this role as Stroud’s Managing Member,” said Attorney Bartol. “As we celebrate the firm’s 125th anniversary, we will build on the firm’s legacy by continuing to provide superior client-driven representation, maintaining Stroud’s longstanding relationships with the community and embracing technological advances in the legal field to further enhance Stroud’s ability to serve our clients for the next 125 years.”
