When Godfrey & Kahn made the move last spring to its new building on East Michigan Street in downtown Milwaukee, Hope Seegert was at the center of the action.

“My goal was to keep business moving along” during the move, said Seegert.

As office services manager at the firm, Seeger played a large role in bringing about the move of more than 300 employees.

Todd Womack, chief financial officer for Godfrey & Kahn, praised Seegert’s contribution.

“Hope has extensive knowledge and experience in smaller departmental moves from throughout her years at the firm, and she used these past experiences to recommend and execute a successful entire office move,” he said. “She has continually focused on improving the level of services provided by her department throughout the years.”

Seegert began working at the Milwaukee law firm parttime while in college. She soon moved into office services and now heads the department, which is responsible for copying and scanning services, purchasing and delivery services and the coordination of moves within the Milwaukee office.

“The department includes all the things that make the law firm run,” Seegert said.

With such varied responsibilities, Seegert works with employees from throughout the Milwaukee office.

“The people is what I enjoy most about my job,” she said. “I am a problem-solver. People come to me when they have questions, even if it’s a question about where to go to find help for their problem.”

Seegert said moving Godfrey & Kahn into its new office was no small endeavor. Above all, she and her colleagues wanted to prevent the firm’s business or customer service from being noticeably affected.

After being in the same building for 40 years, they had a lot to go through.

“There were definitely changes with the move,” she said. “For example, we got new furniture so I had vendors bring in some samples so employees could see everything.”

As office-services manager, Seegert also oversees department employees and makes sure the law firm’s technology is up to date. She said she monitors industry trends and is always looking for ways to help the department improve its services to the rest of the firm.

“I am always looking for ways to make everyone’s jobs easier so we can provide the best possible service to our clients,” Seegert said.
