  3. Danielle M. Johnson

As a member of Reinhart’s Corporate Law and Real Estate practices, Danielle Johnson is passionate about making a positive impact on her clients’ ability to realize their greatest ambitions.

She serves as outside general counsel while also providing expertise in mergers and acquisitions, succession planning and commercial real estate matters. Her clients are individuals and businesses of all scopes and sizes, including entrepreneurs, startups, corporations, limited liability companies, privately held businesses and nonprofits.

As corporate and real estate law often converge, Danielle’s background in both disciplines makes her especially adept at capitalizing on opportunities. Clients find her a dedicated and tenacious ally who is fully invested in helping them achieve their goals. Frequently, Danielle’s clients rely on her to guide them through unfamiliar and challenging territory, a responsibility she takes to heart as one of the most rewarding aspects of her practice.

She is community-minded, volunteering with the Doyenne Group, Inc. helping women and minorities start and grow new businesses, and with the FORE! Lakes Committee of Clean Lakes Alliance, Inc. helping to clean up our lakes. She also participates in the State Bar of Wisconsin’s Family Business Update, educating the community on relevant legal matters.

In her free time, Danielle enjoys traveling, boating and playing a variety of sports, including basketball, volleyball and golf.
