BOISE, Idaho—Stoel Rives LLP is pleased to announce that associate Wade C. Foster has been selected as a member of the Idaho Business Review Accomplished Under 40—Class 2024, the publication’s “tribute to Idaho’s best and brightest young professionals.” The honorees, chosen from nearly 200 nominees for their professional achievement, leadership, mentorship, and community service, will be celebrated at an awards event on June 4, 2024, at Boise Centre West in downtown Boise.

Foster, who practices in Stoel Rives’ Environment, Land Use & Natural Resources group, advises clients on meeting environmental goals and compliance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and other federal and state environmental laws, including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. He also counsels companies on the disposal of hazardous wastes, including “forever chemicals” such as PFAS.

Foster represents clients in resolving civil enforcement actions brought by state and federal agencies, such as the EPA, and defending citizen suits under federal environmental laws. His clients include leading companies in industries that significantly contribute to Idaho’s economy, including agriculture, renewable energy, timber and forest products, and mining.

Foster shows his commitment to increasing diversity at Stoel Rives and in the larger legal community through serving as the Boise chair of Stoel’s firmwide Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee, which develops strategies and tools to achieve the firm’s DEI goals. Since taking on the leadership role in 2022, he has led the Boise office’s efforts to recruit and retain diverse talent at the firm and to reach out to the broad spectrum of diverse communities throughout Idaho.

Foster also has a deep commitment to his community. Since 2019, he has acted as a volunteer mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Idaho, making the extraordinary commitment to being a “Big Brother,” maintaining a one-on-one relationship with a child over many years and meeting regularly as a positive, reliable adult influence in the child’s life.
