MILWAUKEE, WI – Davis|Kuelthau, s.c. delighted to announce that attorney Lawrence J. Glusman, a member of the Corporate and Real Estate Teams, was selected by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) for the Marketplace 2020 Diverse Business Development Award, specifically the Minority Business Development Award.

This award honors professional leaders who have dedicated their esteemed careers to distinguished service in business and community development, supporting minority-, women-, and veteran-owned business across Wisconsin.

Larry has represented small – midsized entities with their commercial lending, real estate and business transactions for 25 years. His practice also includes creditors’ rights in litigation, foreclosure and various insolvency proceedings. As a Founding Board Member of the revitalized Hmong Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce, Larry represented the Chamber for a decade in its effort to help Hmong and Asian American business owners. He also works with the African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin. Both organizations are minority-based non-profit lenders which invest in businesses statewide. Larry has documented and closed dozens of chamber business loans, helping owners achieve their growth goals.

Larry also represents established and start-up businesses with real estate and asset purchase transactions and other financing, leasing, development and corporate matters. His commitment to helping small businesses thrive comes from his family’s legacy of owning and operating small businesses. His experience growing up around entrepreneurs and working for a family retail business gave him the tools needed to know how to respond and best serve his clients as an attorney.

As an attorney closely in tune to the needs of his clients, Larry has been recognized in the 2021 edition of Best Lawyers in America for Corporate and Real Estate law. In 2018, he also earned the Small Business Legal Assistance Award from the U.S. Small Business Administration.
