2021 Missouri Lawyers Media Top V&S winners announced

Each year, Missouri Lawyers Media searches its Verdicts & Settlements to honor the state-licensed attorneys who achieved the largest verdicts, settlements, judgments and defense wins of the past 12 months.

The year of the empty chair: For some big cases, the defense was MIA

To an unusual degree, Missouri Lawyers Media’s Top Verdicts & Settlements rankings for 2019 feature cases in which the defense at trial was less than optimal, to put it mildly. The year’s second-largest case, Enslein as Trustee for Xurex Inc. v. Di Mase, ended in a jury verdict of nearly $118 million after the individual […]

Gary C. Robb
Jan 27, 2020

Influential Lawyer: Gary C. Robb, Robb & Robb

After two decades of work fighting for helicopter crash victims, Gary A. Robb has witnessed significant legislative strides made to help prevent devastating burn injuries after hard landings. Robb, partner at Kansas City-based Robb & Robb, couldn’t be prouder of the role he and his wife, Anita, have played in helping to bring about those […]

Influential Lawyer: Norman E. Siegel, Stueve Siegel Hanson

Working in an area of the law where the rules seem to evolve with every new turn in technology can leave even the best attorneys with a cloudy vision of where cases are headed. Despite a rapidly changing legal landscape in his field, Norman E. Siegel has made one thing crystal clear: After the year […]

Influential Lawyer: Philip L. Willman, Brown & James

Philip L. Willman has been a member of DRI, the world’s largest defense bar organization, since 1985 and has been a member of the group’s board since 2013. So he had plenty of time to get used to the idea that he would become president of DRI — The Voice of the Defense Bar. But […]

Law Firm Leader: Cameron Garrison, Lathrop GPM

Cameron Garrison didn’t take long to make a prominent mark in his leadership role at Lathrop Gage. Garrison, who took over as the firm’s managing partner in January 2018, had a busy year in 2019. He provided the guiding force for his firm as it merged with Minneapolis-based firm Gray Plant Mooty, opened an office […]

James Scott Kreamer
Jan 27, 2020

Law Firm Leader: James Scott Kreamer, Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice

The year 2019 was a period of growth for Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice, and managing an expansion takes skill and vision. That’s where Scott Kreamer comes in. “There’s a genuine excitement about the firm,” said Kreamer, the firm’s managing member. “I’m privileged to be at the head of an organization that has some of […]

Chase Simmons

Law firm leader: Chase Simmons, Polsinelli

To say Polsinelli had a good year in 2019 would be an understatement. Revenue jumped by 13 percent, and profits per equity partner moved up by 28 percent. The firm capped a decade of rising revenues with a brand-new office serving the Miami area. Much of that success can be credited to Chase Simmons. Now […]

Timothy R. Thornton
Jan 27, 2020

Law firm leader: Timothy R. Thornton, Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale

This is the second time Missouri Lawyers Media has honored Timothy Thornton with a Missouri Lawyers Award, though it is by far the sadder of the two. Thornton was the chief executive officer of Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale until his untimely death in a bicycle accident on June 23, 2019. He was 64. Thornton spent […]

Stuart J. Vogelsmeier
Jan 27, 2020

Law firm leader: Stuart J. Vogelsmeier, Lashly & Baer

Stuart Vogelsmeier still carries a 1979 ticket stub in his wallet from the game in which baseball great Lou Brock drilled his 3,000th hit. “I love all things Cardinal,” said Vogelsmeier, a native of St. Louis County. He also loves all things Lashly & Baer, where he’s spent a three decade-long career in health care […]
