Ludwig has been representing unions and working individuals for more than 30 years. He counsels and represents clients in state and federal courts and administrative matters ranging from discrimination and civil rights disputes to pension, retirement, unemployment compensation and wage and hour issues. Ludwig has fought to protect the rights of hard-working individuals and the unions that represent them. Though based in Philadelphia, he also offers counsel and support to clients in the Chicago area as part of the firm’s relationship with Illinois Advocates.
The Teamsters started in 1903 as a merger of the two leading team driver associations. Originally known as freight drivers and warehouse workers, Teamsters now have organized workers in almost every occupation imaginable, both professional and non-professional, private sector and public sector. Their 1.4 million members include workers as varied as public defenders and zookeepers.
A partner at Willig, Williams & Davidson since 2007, Ludwig graduated from Yale College and then earned his J.D. from University of Pennsylvania law school. He lives in Bryn Mawr.
