MILWAUKEE -- Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c. (Reinhart) is proud to announce that Ben Pavlik, Senior Vice President and Chief Legal Officer at longtime Reinhart client Johnson Financial Group, has been named one of the Milwaukee Business Journal’s Top Corporate Counsel for a Private Company in its 2023 C-Suite Stars Issue.

The C-Suite Stars Award honors top chief financial officers (CFOs), chief marketing officers (CMOs), human resources directors and top corporate counsels in the Milwaukee area. The awards program recognizes these executives' vital work in making their companies and the Milwaukee community successful.

As a testament to his position among the region’s top in-house counsel, Reinhart was pleased to have submitted a letter of support for Pavlik’s award nomination. John Reichert, member of the Banking and Finance Practice and managing shareholder of Reinhart’s Waukesha office noted that “Ben has always demonstrated a rare talent for assessing the legal risks and business objectives and weighing them. He then provides advice in a practical, straightforward manner that people can understand and use to make informed decisions.”

In addition to his work at Johnson Financial Group, Pavlik is actively involved in the Milwaukee community, making an impact to create a better city in which to live. He does so through his active roles on the boards of the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center and the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music.

Reinhart is deeply honored to partner with such clients such as Johnson Financial Group, and to work with top-tier professionals like Pavlik who is a highly skilled and experienced attorney. When a client blazes a trail of success, the firm is proud to stand by to honor a fellow industry and Milwaukee community leader. From growing up in Kansas to the Milwaukee Business Journal C-Suite Stars Award, the Reinhart team congratulates Ben on this well-deserved accolade.
