Brown & James has been selected by St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay to receive a 2012 Business of the Year award. Only 25 awards will be given to local businesses that have stimulated growth in the St. Louis economy in the past year. Brown & James is the only law firm to receive this year's award.
Brown & James, P.C. is a Midwest regional law firm with over 115 attorneys representing companies in litigation, appeals and insurance coverage matters. Brown & James is one of the top firms in the Midwest, having been named the “Winningest Defense Firm” for four straight years by the Missouri Lawyers Weekly. The firm started in 1981 with only 14 lawyers and has since expanded to over 200 employees, including 160 in St. Louis. The firm’s October 1st relocation into 56,000 square feet at the Bank of America Plaza in downtown St. Louis (800 Market Street) reflects Brown & James’s rapidly expanding practice, and its continued commitment to great legal service and commerce in the St. Louis community.
The 2012 City of St. Louis Business Award Celebration Luncheon will be held at the Renaissance Grand Hotel on Friday, October 5th at 11:30 a.m. T. Michael Ward, Managing Principal at Brown & James, and Kathy Johnson, Chief Operating Officer, will be accepting the prestigious award on the firm’s behalf.
