A legal software company is opening its first Midwest office in Milwaukee's Third Ward with support from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., Gov. Tony Evers announced in a news release.
Expert Institute LLC, which connects attorneys with subject matter experts, plans to have the Milwaukee office serve as a hub for the company's research and software development teams. The company's first software solution called Expert iQ is an expert witness management platform.
Expert Institute plans to expand the Milwaukee office to 75 employees within three years. The new office is located at 320 E. Buffalo St.
“We found a very natural fit in Milwaukee, particularly in the entrepreneurial bustle of the Third Ward district,” said Michael Talve, Expert Institute’s CEO and managing director, in the news release. “This, coupled with the immense amount of talent coming from the UW System and other Wisconsin-based colleges, made this move an easy choice. We’re thrilled to continue building our team here.”
Expert Institute has more than 140 employees at its headquarters in New York and office in Los Angeles.
Expert Institute can receive up to $500,000 in state income tax credits through WEDC over the next three years.
“Wisconsin continues to attract national businesses that are leaders in innovation,” Evers said in the news release. “We welcome Expert Institute’s decision to locate here and to join the growing number of businesses that are choosing to locate in Milwaukee and southeast Wisconsin because of our well-trained, well-educated workforce and support for entrepreneurs.”
