Awards & Recognition
March 9, 2010

Polsinelli Shughart PC congratulates St. Louis Attorney Paul G. Klug chosen by St. Louis Small Business Monthly as one of its Top St. Louis Attorneys for 2010. St. Louis Small Business Monthly is St. Louis' locally owned business publication, bringing business tips, strategies and analysis to the presidents, CEOs, owners and top executives of 24,000 businesses in the St. Louis Metropolitan region.

“I’m very honored to receive this recognition,” said Klug, a shareholder who practices in general corporate law. “Ensuring that I add value and provide a competitive advantage to my entrepreneurial business clients is a high priority for me and this honor reinforces my dedication as I strive to help my clients meet their business goals.”

Klug has been practicing law for nearly 20 years and is able to advise companies in all stages, from startups to emerging and growing businesses, and companies downsizing or preparing to sell. He focuses his practice on general corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance. He also provides clients advice on shareholder disputes, franchise law and corporate finance.

“The best piece of advice I can offer business owners is to choose your business partners more carefully than you would choose your spouse,” said Klug. “If you choose to have business partners, make sure you have an agreement in place that governs a split-up.”

Klug graduated with his J.D. from Saint Louis University School of Law and has a B.A. in economics and political science from Rockhurst University. He is an excellent source for reporters working on stories about:

· Starting a business
· Growing a business
· Downsizing a business
