A group of well-known St. Louis attorneys will join Polsinelli Shughart’s St. Louis office on May 1. The attorneys include Alan S. Breckenridge, Thomas J. Campbell, Ruben K. Chuquimia, Thomas P. Hohenstein, Bradley G. Kafka, and Sanford S. Neuman, all highly respected in the St. Louis business and legal communities. The St Louis addition includes five shareholders and nine other attorneys.

“St. Louis, which is the second largest office in our firm, continues to be an important and growing part of our firm,” said Polsinelli Shughart Chairman Russ Welsh. “Many of our lawyers have practiced with and opposite these quality attorneys who share our firm’s values and are entrenched and committed to the St. Louis business community. They will be a great addition for our clients and firm.”

The new St. Louis attorneys will assist clients with business litigation, labor and employment, government affairs and corporate transactions. They will complement the firm’s St. Louis office which currently offers legal services in banking, business litigation, corporate, financial services, health care, labor and employment, life sciences, real estate, tax and trusts and estates matters.

Gerber. “Having practiced law for nearly 30 years in St. Louis, I know Tom, Sandy and this group personally. They are top tier problem solvers, focused on excellence and committed to our city. They are a great fit for our firm, and it’s exciting to have them onboard. With the addition of these attorneys, our St. Louis office now grows to 100 lawyers.”

Other new attorneys include Peter A. Corsale, Robert J. Droney, Bridget K. Johnson, Ryan J. McCarty, John J. Temporiti, Johnny S. Wang, Mark W. Weisman, and Robert H. Wexler.
