Frank Gimbel founded Gimbel Reilly Guerin Brown, LLP (GRGB) after serving as an assistant United States attorney from 1963 through 1968. More than 50 years later, Gimbel is now in his upper 80s and is still making his mark in the legal world in Wisconsin and beyond.
Throughout the course of his career, Gimbel found his niche in civil litigation, often working on multifaceted business, employment, and communications and First Amendment cases. Whether it’s working alongside a corporation, small business, or the average person needing a knowledgeable and tenacious ally in the courtroom, Gimbel gives his all – every time, he said.
Gimbel says he also invested in the community at large and under his guidance, helped the Wisconsin District complete the construction, renovation, and financing of the buildings that now make up the core of Milwaukee’s convention business, the Wisconsin Center, the U.W. Milwaukee Panther Arena, and the Miller High Life Theatre. He has also been very active in different board positions and has served as the president of the Milwaukee Bar Association and State Bar of Wisconsin.
Gimbel’s assistant Britt Frank noted , “After representing a high-profile case with the police chief of Milwaukee, Frank continues to be in the office every day, represent the firm, and was even asked to be the ‘champion’ at this year’s Champions of Hope Gala benefiting the American Cancer Society. I can’t imagine a more fitting person for the list. He … continues to be a power-hitter in this area.”
