Brian M. Wcislo

Regarded by some as the Doogie Houser of the legal profession, Brian achieved fame at one of his Australian client's headquarters by wearing flip flops to work daily. Having eventually come to the conclusion that working in a law firm is no fun, he started Wcislo Law Group in 2016 with the modesty stated ambition of completely changing the way law is practiced.

Apart from his well-deserved reputation as a shameless self-promoter, Brian is actually a lawyer too. His expertise is in commercial litigation and product liability defense, and he does stuff like fending off hostile company takeovers, dropping buses off overpasses to test their crashworthiness, mergers and acquisitions, and shareholder derivative suits. Big workplace discrimination cases and some celebrity litigation too, but he doesn't like to mention it much. Brian is pragmatic, direct and confident, navigating our clients through the strange maze of complex company operating agreements to straightforward commercial results and no lawyerish crap along the way. He's versatile, endlessly accommodating and is accessible to his clients 24/7.
