Three Thompson Coburn attorneys were among the nearly 100 local influencers selected by St. Louis Magazine for its 2016 “Power List.” The publication has described the special section, only issued once every several years, as the definitive list of “the people who are shaping our region.”
Below is what St. Louis Magazine had to say about Thompson Coburn’s honorees.
From the “Rainmakers” category: “Minogue chairs St. Louis’ largest law firm, in part because he helped navigate the mega-merger between Thompson & Mitchell and Coburn & Croft years ago. Today the Harvard grad advises some of St. Louis’ biggest companies. He also serves on myriad committees, and he’s a cogent, influential voice behind the scenes. As one insider puts it: ‘Unflappable. Low-profile. The new Walter Metcalfe: He advises everybody.’”
From the “Tastemakers” category: “Schlafly started the explosion of craft beer in St. Louis. He’s also a fine lawyer — he won a trademark battle with his late aunt, the formidable Phyllis Schlafly. And he’s on the board of the library, a backer of the Blues, and a steward of Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park in East St. Louis, pushing hard to make it part of the National Park Service as Eero Saarinen intended all along."
From the “Builders” category: “A decade ago, we ranked Geisman No. 13 on this list. At the time, she was the top development official for the city. Today, armed with a law degree, she works at Thompson Coburn, exploiting her understanding of the region’s quirks and proven record of navigating tricky public-private projects.”
