David F. Loeffler

David F. Loeffler has been practicing law since 1963. The emphasis of his practice is in general labor and employment litigation, and white-collar criminal defense.

He argued successfully to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals that it was not a violation of the NLRA to discharge an employee believed by the employer to have engaged in boycott activities; to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals that an arbitrator exceeded his authority when he determined that a collective bargaining agreement contained external law and that the employer violated external law; and to the NLRB that all communication between counsel and client in the collective bargaining context is subject to attorney-client privilege.

David is the author of a chapter on Union-Management Relations in the State Bar of Wisconsin publication, Labor and Employment Law in Wisconsin and several newspaper articles: “Worker Replacement as a Moral Issue,” The Wall Street Journal, August 5, 1991 and “Repeal of the Targeted Jobs Credit Would Harm the Least Well-Off,” The Milwaukee Journal, June 3, 1987.

David and Brian Radloff, a Milwaukee office shareholder, presented an analysis of the retaliation provisions of Sarbanes/Oxley, Dodd-Frank, and the False Claims Act to the Wisconsin SHRM Annual Conference in October 2015.

He is admitted to practice in Wisconsin and Michigan and before the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Second, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Circuits, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

David was a law clerk to Justice Horace Wilkie of the Wisconsin Supreme Court. David was a professor of law at Wayne State University in Michigan and at Florida State University.
