Wesley Zirkle

Wes Zirkle is a long-time business executive and in-house General Counsel of domestic and international companies who is trusted to provide candid and pragmatic advice on business and legal issues alike.

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 on their sponsorship programs, growing a small business into a global leader in its field, and leading marketing agencies. Wes is now in private practice at the innovative law firm of Keller Macaluso, LLC.

Few can claim Wes’ level of experience as a business executive and attorney. He is keen to help business owners, agencies, sports properties, and sponsors achieve their full potential.
