Stinson Continues Growth of St. Louis Office with Two Business Litigation Partners
Partners Barry Haith and Jonathan Waldron recently joined Stinson LLP’s Business Litigation division, further growing the firm's footprint in St. Louis.
“The additions of Barry and Jonathan mark four new attorneys in St. Louis this year, and contribute to our overall growth strategy for the St. Louis market,” said Michael Kaplan, managing partner of Stinson’s St. Louis office. “Our clients both locally in St. Louis and nationally will benefit from their experience and dedication to their practice and community.”
These two attorneys bring significant litigation experience in real estate, construction, environmental and insurance matters, and have counseled clients of all sizes both in Missouri and across the country.
“Barry and Jonathan are extremely talented litigators who will meaningfully enhance our capabilities and client service,” said John Munich, chair of the Business Litigation division. “Both have the comprehensive knowledge and strength that supports our clients' needs in many ways, and enhances our litigation division.”
