Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, a conservative legal organization, is continuing to add to its litigation team in anticipation of the likelihood that it will challenge policies adopted under Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat.
The organization, known as WILL for short, announced on Tuesday that it had hired Luke Berg as deputy counsel. Berg, who has worked the previous four years at the Wisconsin Department of Justice as both a deputy solicitor general and assistant attorney general, is the sixth new addition to WILL in 2019. He has argued nine cases before the Wisconsin Supreme Court and four before the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. His hiring now gives WILL 10 staff attorneys.
The other new hires this year at WILL are: Jim Pugh, now vice president of development; Don Daugherty, senior counsel; Lesley Luehrs, paralegal and development associate; Mary Stitt, senior advisor; and Brian Reisinger, strategic advisor.
Also on Tuesday, WILL announced it had promoted Anthony LoCocco to the position of deputy counsel. LoCocco joined the organization in 2018 as an associate counsel.
