“Attorney Ovbiagele has always been honest with his analysis and
transparent with his billing. He keeps his word and gets the job done!”
- Mandeep K., Serial Entrepreneur
Emil is an award-wining attorney and the founder of OVB Law & Consulting, S.C. As a business attorney and civil litigator, Emil combines pragmatism, charisma, and astute relentlessness to deliver strategic advice and counsel to closely held businesses and individuals and deliver consistent results.

He started the Firm with a clear vision—to positively redefine the way small businesses and individuals view and use legal services. It is no secret that attorneys are often viewed as pariahs by small businesses and individuals. This perception has its roots in hawkish billing practices that are not aligned with the goals of the client, unreachable attorneys, unattainable promises, and uninspiring counsel.

Armed with this knowledge, Emil knew there had to be a better way. He understands that small businesses and individuals deserve better. They need to be represented by attorneys who get them! They deserve inspiring counsel and practical advice.
“Disguising himself as an attorney … Emil is truly an entrepreneur at heart
using a law degree as his catalyst to make an impact in the world.”
- Nathan H., CEO Ease, Inc.
From high growth tech companies to established multi-million-dollar businesses, Emil serves as trusted counsel for a bevy of clients across several industries. As a litigator, Emil is known to be a fierce and calculated advocate and has litigated cases in Wisconsin trial courts, administrative forums, federal courts across the country, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, and most recently before the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
“As the Market President of a billion-dollar financial institution, this Firm has delivered
time and time again. Often on tight deadlines while adding value along the way.”
- Market President, Peoples State Bank
In 2017, he was named to the Wisconsin Law Journal's "Up and Coming Lawyers" list, a prestigious honor bestowed on attorneys who have demonstrated leadership, contributed to their community and successfully achieved legal outcomes early in their career. Each year, between 2017 and 2020, Emil has been named to the Wisconsin Super Lawyers® "Rising Star" list as one of the top attorneys in Wisconsin. In addition to his law practice, Emil serves as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Marquette University Law School and sits on several professional and civic boards.
“I was represented by Emil and he was everything I searched for and more.
He goes the extra mile… He is strategic and very impactful in his delivery.
He will forever be my go-to Attorney.” - Charmice D., Restauranteur
As avid Arsenal F.C. super fans and world travelers, Emil and his enchanting wife, Natalee, dedicate most of their free time to following their favorite soccer team, exploring hidden culinary gems around the world. Although these days, they mostly spend leisure time/weekends chasing their two little daughters around the house, and endlessly watching “Frozen” and every other Disney movie imposed on them.
