Lida Bannink


Areas of Practice

Strong businesses are the building blocks of strong communities. Businesses give identity to communities and link them in a web of economic and social relationships that benefit all community members. As an attorney, I partner with businesses and municipalities to ensure that their day-to-day operations run smoothly which in turn allows them to focus on growth and keeping our communities strong and vibrant.

Lida Bannink is an attorney in our labor and employment practice as well as a litigator in our business and individual law groups. She routinely advises employers, both businesses and municipalities, on how to manage the complex web of laws and regulations to support the entity's human resource needs. Lida is especially adept at synthesizing complex legal and factual materials and clearly communicating all aspects of a case to her clients. When called upon to litigate, she is a strong advocate in the courtroom. She focuses in the following areas:


  • Employee performance issues
  • Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • American's with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Separation/termination agreements
  • Discrimination and harassment
  • Noncompete/confidentiality agreements
  • Wage & overtime/medical leave
  • Whistleblowing & retaliation
  • Employment handbooks
  • Collective bargaining

Lida was raised on her family's rural farm in Clear Lake, Wisconsin and now resides in Western Wisconsin wit her husband and two daughters. Lida has a passion for the outdoors and helping others in need.
