Stinson Partners Jason Engelhart and Sharon Markowitz Recognized as Up & Coming Attorneys by Minnesota Lawyer
Stinson LLP is excited to announce that Minneapolis partners Jason Engelhart and Sharon Markowitz have been selected as 2020 Up & Coming Attorneys by Minnesota Lawyer. Engelhart and Markowitz were selected by judges, bar groups and fellow attorneys for their work, leadership and community service in the first 10 years of their practice.
Engelhart advises managed care organizations, management services organizations and other clients in the health care space on regulatory and transactional matters. He also serves on Stinson's Coronavirus Task Force, where he advises clients firmwide on pertinent issues in and related to the health care industry. Engelhart is also a member of the Minnesota Health Law Institute Planning Committee and volunteers as a big brother for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities.
"Jason collaborates very well with other attorneys and is a go-to resource inside and outside the firm on complex managed care and other health care regulatory issues," said Jill Radloff, managing partner of Stinson's Minneapolis office. "Even at an early stage in his career, Jason is committed to the next generation of health care attorneys, investing considerable time in mentoring and training the division's associates."
Markowitz defends clients in high-exposure, complex litigation, often involving intricate quantitative analysis. She focuses her representation on financial services clients. She also handles class action litigation and appellate litigation for a range of clients. Additionally, Markowitz serves on Stinson's Coronavirus Task Force, advising on force majeure clauses and other contracting and business considerations. She is heavily involved with the firm's pro bono efforts and serves on the board of MN Adopt.
"Sharon has been a strong voice on our board as we work toward developing a more diverse board of directors that better represents the families and children we work with," said Rachel Walstad, executive director of MN Adopt. "Her commitment to using her skillset to help to her community and to better the lives of Minnesota children and families is inspiring, and I am beyond thankful to know her."
Engelhart, Markowitz and their fellow honorees will be recognized during a virtual celebration on September 11, 2020.
