Stinson LLP is excited to announce that Partner Russell Frisby, Jr. has been selected as the firm's 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Champion Award winner. This annual award was presented virtually on Thursday as a part of Stinson's sixth annual Diversity Week activities.

He is also a long-time member and past co-chair of Stinson's Diversity Committee.
"We're deeply grateful for everything Russell done to make this firm a more diverse, inclusive and equitable one. He is a true champion in this space," said Mark Hinderks, Stinson's managing partner, who presented Frisby with the award.
