Basgall Recognized by Wichita Business Journal as a Young Professional in Legal
Stinson LLP is pleased to announce that Partner Frank Basgall has been recognized by the Wichita Business Journal as a Young Professional in Legal Services.
The Young Professionals series spotlights up-and-coming professionals ages 25-40 who are said to be the next generation of city and community leaders.
Basgall represents clients across a wide array of industries, including oil and gas, aviation, health care, financial, and construction. He operates in various capacities in order to best serve his clients' full scope of needs, and says the focus of his practice is "always on protecting my clients' business interests" and keeping clients informed on statutory or case law updates that may impact their business.
Majoring in construction science and management while at Kansas State University, Basgall became interested in legal services after taking several classes focused on construction agreements and business law. "Those topics piqued my interest and pointed me toward law school," Basgall said. Basgall's former construction management professor and mentor, David Fritchen, supported his decision to attend law school and connected Basgall with other lawyers, of which Basgall credits as being the start of his path to Stinson.
Basgall advises other young professionals in legal services to "work to understand your client's business intimately so you can be proactive in helping them succeed." He notes that "the legal profession touches every industry and it presents constant opportunities to continue learning," making it an enjoyable and attractive profession. Basgall also commented that at Stinson, he has the privilege of working with "first-rate lawyers" who are also fun to be around, making work "a real pleasure."
