Attorney William Wallo Elected Managing Partner of Law Firm
The Eau Claire law firm of Weld Riley S.C. is pleased to announce William Wallo, a shareholder with the firm, has been elected to serve as Managing Partner.
The previous managing partner, Melissa Kirschner, is stepping down due to her desire to focus on her practice full time as the head of the Workers’ Compensation section.
“This is truly an honor, and I’m very excited to help manage this firm into the future. I’ll be only the firm’s 4th managing partner, following Kathryn J. Prenn, Christine A. Gimber, and Melissa A. Kirschner, so I’m in very distinguished company,” Attorney Wallo said.
Wallo will also continue to practice as a member of the firm’s business and litigation sections. His practice areas include business transactions, commercial litigation, financial restructuring, creditors rights, insolvency, and bankruptcy. Wallo works alongside other talented attorneys including Christine A. Gimber in the business section representing creditors in collection actions and in business disputes.
Wallo graduated summa cum laude from the University of Central Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s degree in English. He received his law degree with highest honors from the University of Oklahoma College of Law and spent 18 years as the law clerk for the Honorable Thomas S. Utschig, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for the Western District of Wisconsin before joining Weld Riley.
“Bill is such a talented attorney, and we’ll be well served to have his guidance as Managing Partner at the firm,” said firm President and attorney John Robert Behling.
Weld Riley, S.C. has offices in Eau Claire, Black River Falls, Wausau, and Menomonie and serves families, private sector businesses and public sector clients, including school districts, county governments, and many municipalities around western Wisconsin.
