The best career advice Patrick Eckelkamp says he ever received was to take ownership of projects. He appears to be following it in his practice at Husch Blackwell.
From working on the WildHorse mixed-use development project in Chesterfield to the development of the new $78 million Maryland Heights ice sports complex and the Enterprise Center’s $150 million renovation, Eckelkamp has handled real estate projects surpassing a half-billion dollars in value.
Eckelkamp is a member of the board of directors of the St. Louis Public Library Foundation. He also is active with RISE Community Development St. Louis, a nonprofit home builder and community developer, and Friends of Tower Grove Park.
“As an up-and-coming real estate lawyer at Husch Blackwell, Patrick has played a prominent role in several key developments that impact the lives of a great many St. Louisans on a daily basis and are frequently covered by the local business press,” his nominator wrote.
