Johnny Wang Named a St. Louis Business Journal 40 Under 40
Stinson LLP is proud to announce that Partner Johnny Wang has been selected as a St. Louis Business Journal 2020 “40 Under 40” honoree. Wang is being honored for commitments to diversity and inclusion in and outside of the firm, and his leadership in the St. Louis community.
As a domestic and international labor and employment attorney, Wang assists clients of all sizes, from start-ups to publicly traded Fortune 100 companies on matters ranging from high-risk c-suite terminations to serving as lead negotiator during collective bargaining negotiations. His international labor and employment work helps U.S. companies navigate the complexities caused by having workers abroad.
“One of the remarkable things about Johnny is his boundless energy and enthusiasm to reach goals, for the clients or for our firm,” said Mark Hinderks, Stinson’s managing partner. “His passion has caused him to be well-known and respected across the various offices of our firm. He is a person who engages, always, and who gets things done.”
In addition to his practice, Wang has long been involved with the Asian American Chamber of Commerce of St. Louis, founding the organization in 2012, the Missouri Asian-American Bar Association, FOCUS St. Louis, and the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA). He served as the firm's fellow for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Fellow from 2016-2017, and was most recently appointed to the St. Louis County Library Board of Trustees in December 2019.
Wang was awarded the Diverse Business Leader Award by the St. Louis Business Journal in 2012 and Torchbearer Award by the Missouri Asian American Bar Association in 2018, of which he is a founding member. He was also named a “Best Lawyer Under 40” by NAPABA in 2019.
Each year, the St. Louis Business Journal editors select 40 professionals under the age of 40 who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement while also becoming leaders in their communities. This year more than 600 young professionals were nominated across a variety of industries.
