As an attorney at Gutwein Law, Wes acts as outside general counsel for companies ranging from startups to traditional middle market companies to help them achieve their full potential. In addition to partnering with business owners, he also spends his days working with marketing agencies, sports properties, and sponsors. Wes’ experience as a former business executive and in-house General Counsel of domestic and international companies allows him to provide his clients with candid and pragmatic legal advice informed by nearly two decades of direct business leadership.

Wes counts himself fortunate to have had a “pinch me” career, and he’s just getting started. Originally thinking he would be a professor of Religion, Wes enrolled in law school at the urging of his uncle, himself a General Counsel who believed Wes’ uncommon way of thinking and his strong sense of ethics would serve the profession well.

Since graduating from law school, Wes has had an interesting and diverse career representing celebrities, advising Fortune 1000 companies, growing a small business into a global leader in its field, and leading marketing agencies.

Outside of the firm, Wes enjoys playing golf with his sons, carpentry, and movie nights with his family.
