Missouri Lawyers Media will honor 26 attorneys from around the state with its 2020 ICON Awards for their notable and sustained success and leadership both within and beyond the field of law.
The ICON Awards, launched in 2018, are presented to distinguished men and women attorneys age 60 and older in recognition of their exemplary careers and longstanding commitment to the Missouri legal community. Whether active or retired, honorees must hold or have held a senior position with significant decision-making authority for their firm or organization.
The list of 2020 honorees includes founding partners, firm leaders and former public officials. Missouri Lawyers Media plans to celebrate their accomplishments at the third annual ICON Awards luncheon, set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 17 at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.
