Local attorneys John L. Maier, are currently collaborating on an update of several chapters in the Wisconsin Condominium Law Handbook, which is a comprehensive resource on Condominium Law, and is indispensable for anyone who needs to know about condominium law in Wisconsin. Over the past two decades, Wisconsin has seen tremendous growth in the areas of condominium development and ownership. In an effort to guide practitioners in this fast-growing area of real estate practice, the State Bar of Wisconsin published the first edition of the Wisconsin Condominium Law Handbook in 1981. Lowell Sweet, who is now retired, was among the original editors and authors. Since it was first published it has been an important reference tool for Wisconsin’s lawyers.

John L. Maier, current President of Sweet & Maier, SC, has carried on the writing tradition of his partner Lowell, and edited, and authored several chapters in the newest edition. The supplement will be published later this year, and distributed to all Handbook owners.

Together, the attorneys of Sweet & Maier, S.C. offer legal services in the areas of zoning and land use law, business law, real estate litigation and planned community development in both Wisconsin and Illinois. The firm has been responsible for the legal work associated with the origination of some of the largest planned communities in southern Wisconsin, in recent years, including The Abbey Resort Communities, the Interlaken Resort Complex, and the Geneva National Community, which is a 2,000 acre condominium complex ultimately involving $500 million in new mixed-use construction centered around three signature golf courses.

Sweet & Maier, S.C. provides legal services throughout Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. The firm maintains a Website at www.wisclaw.com.
