Polzin is an experienced corporate and transactional attorney who counsels both entrepreneurs and established businesses across a broad range of services, including acquisitions, due diligence, policy review and corporate governance.

Wilde previously served as a law clerk to the Hon. Clark Waddoups of the United States District Court for the District of Utah. Before clerking, he worked as a Research and Writing Specialist, and later as an Assistant Federal Public Defender (AFPD) in the Southern District of Texas.

As an AFPD, Wilde regularly argued in federal district court, cross-examined federal agents and negotiated settlement with Assistant United States Attorneys.
