October 1, 2007
The votes are in for the Missouri Lawyers Weekly first annual "Missouri’s Best" competition. Bryan Cave tops the list as the best law firm in the state, the best law firm for minorities and took second place for the best law firm for women. Kansas City Partner Herb Kohn earned first place in the "best rainmaker" category.
"Bryan Cave is pleased to win numerous categories in the Missouri’s Best," said Kansas City Managing Partner Robert Thompson. "It is always an honor to be favorably reviewed by others in the legal field."
"It is a particular mark of distinction to win first place for best law firm for minorities and second for best law firm for women," stated St. Louis Managing Partner Peter Van Cleve. "Caring about and supporting the growth and well being of our people has long been one of our core values and an integral part of our culture. Bryan Cave is proud of its commitment to diversity and strives to continue to build a work environment that conducive for all employees."
A member of the Transactions and Technology, Entrepreneurial & Commercial Practice Client Service Groups, Kohn practices corporate, business and banking law, concentrating in the areas of acquisitions, financial transactions, banking and public finance.
"While I am grateful to be named best rainmaker," said Kohn, "we all know it would be impossible without the backing of the outstanding Bryan Cave team."
The "Missouri’s Best" special feature lists the winners in 36 categories of legal excellence that were voted by their peers. The tabulated votes are listed in the Oct. 1 issue of Missouri Lawyers Weekly.
