About me

Saul Glazer, a partner at Axley Brynelson, LLP, is a second-generation attorney. His father, Sidney M. Glazer, has been recognized as one of the top appellate attorneys in U.S. History, arguing numerous cases before the U.S. Supreme Court; serving on the Watergate Prosecution Force; and heading the Appellate Section of the Criminal Division for the U.S. Department of Justice.

Mr. Glazer serves as an attorney for a number of Wisconsin companies, and recently served as interim counsel to a national manufacturer. His two main areas of focus are construction and employment law. He is a seasoned litigator, representing clients in mediation, litigation, and arbitration regarding construction, employment, commercial, dealership, distributorship, and intellectual property. He provides creative solutions for complex problems, and prides himself on his ability to help clients cost-effectively manage difficult situations.

Mr. Glazer regularly represents owners, contractors, subcontractors, engineers and architects in preparation of construction contracts and integrated project delivery documents (including AIA, EJCDC, DBIA and Consensus documents). He also represents clients regarding bid disputes, change orders, construction and design defects, differing site condition claims, delay claims, insurance coverage issues, ATCP 110, and lien law claims.

Mr. Glazer is the co-author of the Wisconsin Chapter of the State by State Guide to Construction Contracts and Claims (Aspen 2012). He is also the co-author of the Wisconsin chapter of the DRI Construction Litigation Desk Reference, and he authored the chapter for Construction Dispute Resolution for the Inside the Minds series (Aspatore 2010), as well. Mr. Glazer is an associate board member of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Wisconsin. He is also the Chair for the Construction and Public Contract Law Section for the State Bar of Wisconsin. He regularly assists contractors and subcontractors through the Associated Builders & Contractors’ legal hotline.

Mr. Glazer's work as an employment lawyer includes representing employers before administrative agencies and state and federal courts. He counsels clients on the Americans with Disabilities Act and other state and federal disability discrimination and accommodation laws. His experience also includes serving as an attorney in cases involving hostile work environments, retaliation, OSHA regulatory compliance, wage and hour laws, arrest and criminal convictions, equal pay, employment contracts, restrictive covenants, confidentiality and non-compete agreements. Mr. Glazer successfully represented a national retailer against a physical appearance discrimination claim before the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.

Furthermore, Mr. Glazer is an editor of the Wisconsin Employment Law Letter, and he contributed to the 2013 publications of Fifty Employment Laws in Fifty States. Additionally, he created the Seven Questions to Use When Disciplining and Terminating Employees seminar, and regularly presents this seminar to national audiences.
