Larry C. Wallace began his legal career in 1968 in North Little Rock, Arkansas. His firm and practice grew to one of the state’s largest, with more than 50 lawyers. The firm maintained offices in Little Rock, Washington, DC and London.
His unique and distinguished reputation attracted an impressive list of clients. His practice was centered around the laws of banking, broadcasting, corporate, public finance, public utilities, real estate, tax, trade and transportation.

He has represented the Embassy of Japan, ITOUCH, ConAgra, Ford Motor Company and consulted on infrastructure projects in Macedonia, India, Greece, the West Bank, Mexico, Canada, Ghana, Vietnam, United Kingdom and the Republic of Korea.
While serving as Chairman of his law firm, Larry also acted as General Counsel and member of the Board of Directors of banking institutions, public utilities, and a natural gas exploration, production and distribution company (now Reliant Energy).
