Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Wayne Lueders was named by MKE Fellows as an Education Leader Honoree. Lueders was recognized for his consistent standard of excellence in the community and positive impact on the organization's young men.
The MKE Fellows initiative was created in 2012 to encourage talented, young students from Milwaukee to pursue and complete their college education and serve as a vehicle to attract African American college graduates to return to the Greater Milwaukee area. MKE Fellows envisions a healthier and more economically prosperous community that is better positioned to support the fiscal growth of Wisconsin. The primary goal of MKE Fellows is the creation of a strong pipeline of young, African-American male college graduates ready to return to Wisconsin to excel in their careers, build wealth, and become engaged leaders. MKE Fellows seeks to develop groups of young men who are not only well-educated, but who provide servant leadership that will be emulated by others.
Lueders is a business lawyer in Foley's Milwaukee office and member of the firms Estates & Trusts Practice. He has been practicing for more than 40 years across a broad range of estate taxation matters, estate and trust administration, business ownership and succession, and valuation determinations and disputes. He is also a member of the firm's Manufacturing Sector and Sports Industry Team.
