Josh Gimbel joined Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP in 2013, after a long partnership at Milwaukee-based, Michael Best & Friedrich. Josh's Partnership role ushers in a new era at GRGB, building on the already strong groundwork started by the firm's founding partners.

Josh's practice focuses on commercial and corporate litigation, all areas of land use and zoning, real estate and municipal law as well as providing general business advice. These practice areas are a great addition to GRGB's already diverse legal specialties.

Like his father, Frank Gimbel, Josh is also passionate about giving back. He is the former Chair of the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation and is also a member of the Greater Milwaukee Committee (GMC). The GMC is comprised of 200 passionate CEOs and other community leaders who work together to make Milwaukee the best place to live, learn, work, play and stay. Josh serves on the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee board and volunteers monthly at the Milwaukee Justice Center providing brief legal advice to pro se litigants in Milwaukee County.
