Corporate law covers several aspects of starting, operating, growing, managing, and exiting a business. No two businesses, transactions, or deals are exactly the same. To effectively add value in any setting, a trusted corporate advisor needs up-to-the-minute knowledge of current business law and emerging trends, as well as strong negotiation skills, the ability to think outside the box, and meticulous attention to detail.

Brian Wallace amply brings those abilities to bear on his work with Foster Wallace clients. As a former AmLaw 100 law firm partner—trained by some of the top corporate lawyers—Brian has represented small, mid-size, and high-profile national and international business clients for more than a decade.

He co-founded Foster Wallace to offer small, mid-size, and family businesses that same level of knowledge and service at a fair price. From startups and emerging technology companies to mature operating businesses, Brian provides a full range of transactional and other corporate services to help clients achieve their business objectives while mitigating potentially costly mistakes or liabilities—so that clients can focus on running their businesses rather than dealing with legal concerns.
