Joshua J. Kindkeppel

Attorney Joshua J. Kindkeppel is a shareholder in the firm and concentrates his practice in the areas of business law, civil litigation, real estate, employment, and administrative agency matters.

Josh handles business start-ups, represents clients in business purchases/sales and guides owners through break-ups and dissolutions. Over the years, he has represented a variety of businesses and professionals including attorneys, accountants, chiropractors, contractors, childcare providers, dentists, engineers, farmers, filling stations and convenience stores, hair and beauty salons, insurance firms, landlords, local community banks and credit unions, machine shops, music artists, nurses, physicians, professors, body art studios, technology firms, therapists, veterinarians, writers and more. Additionally, Josh works with and represents non-profit organizations in achieving their goals.  

Josh also prepares, negotiates, and advises clients on contracts and enjoys representing clients in commercial and residential real estate purchases/sales. He also frequently provides employment advice to business owners, human resource departments, and individuals. Josh enjoys a niche practice representing graduate students on academic appeals and university disputes.  His goal in each academic case is to ensure that his clients are able to complete their coursework and graduate from their respective programs.  Josh’s practice also includes the areas of business and real estate litigation, representing professionals in licensing appeals, and he serves as a mediator through the Dane County Case Mediation Program.

Josh is an active member of the community.  He is on the board of the Sun Prairie Rotary Club, was elected by his peers to serve as president of the Dane County Bar Association, and he, along with three other Sun Prairie attorneys, founded the Sunshine Legal Clinic, a free legal clinic to assist those who could otherwise not afford to consult with an attorney.   As a result of Josh’s devotion to public service, he was featured by the
 Wisconsin Law Journal as part of its Asked & Answered Series (“Business Attorney makes Public Service part of his Practice”).
