On August 24, Legal Services of Eastern Missouri presented the 2023 Hon. John R. Essner Young Lawyer Award to Thompson Coburn associate Rose Tanner as part of Legal Services of Eastern Missouri’s annual For the Common Good Awards. This award is presented for outstanding commitment to pro bono service by young lawyers and the award was presented by Cynthia Newsome, wife of the late Judge Essner.
Thompson Coburn litigation attorneys represent individuals in Rent & Possession cases in the St. Louis area. Rose states, “Representing clients pro bono who are facing eviction is not always easy…I feel like it is the least I can do to help someone who is losing their home. It’s fulfilling to see a real-life immediate impact of legal work that I do.”
Aside from pro bono work, Rose assists clients with a wide variety of business litigation matters. She performs legal research, drafts pleadings and other documents, supports case management, and assists with client communications. Rose helps litigation teams analyze the strengths and weaknesses of arguments and evidence.
