The St. Louis firm continued to expand its operations both nationally and worldwide. Year-end tax changes resulted in a noticeable increase in client work for the firm, according to Atlanta managing partner Thomas R. McNeill. “In 2013, we continue to see an expansion in transactional activity fueled by pressures on the private equity market and the robust public securities market,” said McNeill. "In addition, significant legal work will continue to arise from the continuing complexities of the mortgage industry and commercial finance restructuring."
