The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry named Brown & James Counsel Bruce DeGroot the Freshman of the Year for his work in the Missouri legislature.

Rep. DeGroot serves the 101st District in Chesterfield and had a significant impact during his first year in the House. Since serving in the legislature, his focus has been on tort reform. He sponsored Missouri H.B. 339, which considerably reduces abuse of RSMO 537.065 agreements between plaintiffs' attorneys and unrepresented defendants. The bill was signed by Gov. Greitens and went into effect in August 2017.

Rep. DeGroot will be honored at the Missouri Business Awards on Nov. 16.
