"Jenna's commitment to pro bono has helped build businesses and opportunities across the St. Louis region. She is an active young lawyer who seeks smart solutions for her clients and supports the ideals of innovative legal delivery, often taking on new matters as soon as she finishes work with another client," noted in the release.
Jenna advises clients through a diverse array of complex business transactions. Her experience includes reorganizations, acquisitions and divestitures, financings and lease transactions. Although her practice spans across multiple industries, Jenna has gained significant experience in advising clients in the agribusiness industry.
