“The very end of college was when I started to think about law as a career,” he said. “I had studied a lot of American history and constitutional history. To me, the law was history come to life. I liked the idea of learning from the past to influence the future.”
Since joining the firm in 2018, Wislocky has represented individuals and businesses in complex civil cases, including breach of contract, fraud, partnership and shareholder disputes and employment matters.
He has briefed motions and appeared in cases in state and federal courts, arbitrations and mediations. Wislocky has also worked in all phases of litigation, arguing discovery and dispositive motions, taking and defending depositions, examining witnesses, and taking responsibility for legal research and brief drafting.
“I’ve always tried to follow the day-to-day work that’s interesting to me,” Wislocky said. “I love writing briefs and formulating arguments.”
Wislocky recently was part of a three-person trial team that represented a business client in an international arbitration. He found himself taking part in all aspects of the arbitration in the ongoing matter, including witness examination and preparation.
He has also worked quite a bit in appellate practice, helping in the briefing and preparation for argument of cases in the Minnesota Court of Appeals, Minnesota Supreme Court and 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Wislocky’s work has also led to a number of settlements, including a 2019 settlement for $27 million in a breach of contract matter.
His pro bono work has also been impactful.
“I helped represent the governor’s office in a case having to do with the pardon board and a challenge to statutes that requires the three members of the board to vote unanimously,” Wislocky said. “That was gratifying to work on.”
