Doug Dalgleish, Karen Garrett Named "Best of the Bar" by Kansas City Business Journal
Since 2002 the publication has compiled the directory to highlight the accomplishments and skill of local attorneys. The paper changed the selection criteria this year. Lawyers applied to be considered, and the honorees were selected by a panel of top people in the profession. In addition, the focus was tightened to those practice areas of particular importance to area business clients. The attorneys selected were recognized in a special edition of the paper and at an awards ceremony at the Power & Light Grand Hall in downtown Kansas City.
Dalgleish is a litigator who has won landmark cases in state and federal courts across the U.S. He has successfully represented clients in mediations, arbitrations and before judges and juries. His experience includes shareholder derivative litigation, wrongful death, negligence, long term supply and revenue division contract disputes, toxic tort and products liability. He is a fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers.

She works closely with financial institutions, trade associations, alternative financial service businesses and others to design, document and deliver financial products and services directly and through third parties.
