As an attorney in Reinhart’s Labor and Employment Practice, Christopher Schuele is focused on the human side of corporate law, helping clients resolve the issues that arise between employers, employees and other business stakeholders. He is an experienced litigator and represents clients in a wide variety of business disputes, including breach of fiduciary duty claims, shareholder disputes and wage and hour actions (both individual and class actions).

Christopher has a deep understanding of how the business world works and counsels clients on traditional labor relations matters, restrictive covenant agreements and compliance with nondiscrimination and affirmative action requirements for employers doing business with the federal government.

Personal integrity is the foundation of his practice, and Christopher is committed to delivering the right guidance at the right time for best outcomes. He’s an excellent communicator with the ability to identify critical matters that move a case forward successfully. He thrives on helping his clients with the daily challenges they face, adopting their priorities as his own and working as a trusted adviser to grow their businesses.

Christopher often presents to professional organizations on complex employment issues, sharing his knowledge and experience with others. During law school, he was a judicial intern for Justice N. Patrick Crooks of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, where he conducted research and drafted bench memoranda. Prior to law school, Christopher taught World History at Marquette University High School as a member of the school’s Alumni Service Corps.

Christopher has a long-standing interest in helping those in need and serves on the board of Hope House of Milwaukee, a nonprofit emergency shelter, rapid rehousing facility and community center. He spends his free time with family, is an avid cyclist and outdoorsman.
