On a mission to positively redefine the way clients view and use legal services!
Emil is the founder of OVB Law & Consulting, S.C. He represents clients in civil litigation and employment law matters, and counsels closely-held businesses. Emil combines pragmatism, charisma, and astute relentlessness in delivering consistent results and sound advice for clients.
When asked why he became a lawyer, Emil answered: “To be the eye of the storm for my clients and to help them safely ride the waves of progress.” He is unflappable and dogged.
As a civil litigator and employment attorney, Emil is the legal gladiator you want in your corner when winning and defining your victory matters.
As counsel to businesses and entrepreneurs, his knack for presenting out-of-the box solutions and clear counsel is unmatched (maybe only by his exquisite sense of fashion).
In addition to his law practice, Emil serves as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Marquette University Law School and leads several professional and civic boards. We still don’t know where he finds the time. We’ve concluded he has an extended (maybe malfunctioning) clock.
But that’s just half the story. When the world goes to sleep, you can catch him binge-listening and trying to lip sync every Hamilton soundtrack (Thanks Lin-Manuel Miranda!), pretending to be a poet, or lamenting about his on-and-off-again favorite soccer team Arsenal FC.
Emil is an award-winning attorney and the founder of OVB Law & Consulting, S.C. As a business attorney and civil litigator, Emil combines pragmatism, charisma, and astute relentlessness to deliver strategic counsel to closely-held businesses and individuals, and to deliver consistent results.
In 2017, he was named to the Wisconsin Law Journal's "Up and Coming Lawyers" list, a prestigious honor bestowed on attorneys who have demonstrated leadership, contributed to their community, and successfully achieved legal outcomes early in their career. Each year, between 2017 and 2021, Emil has been named to the Wisconsin Super Lawyers® "Rising Star" list as one of the top attorneys in Wisconsin. In addition to his law practice, Emil serves as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Marquette University Law School and sits on several professional and civic boards.
