Law360 Pulse Features Growth of Business Transactions Group, Addition of Six Attorneys

Law360 Pulse

Lathrop GPM’s Business Transactions Practice Group has undergone significant growth in the past two months with the addition of six attorneys, the launch of a Closely Held Business Institute, and an internal reorganization to create further synergies in key practice areas.

The six new attorney additions include counsel Ian Furman in Dallas, counsel Kathy Shaw in Chicago, counsel Jane Trueper in Kansas City, associate Aristotle Butler in St. Louis, associate Jacob Heck in Minneapolis, and associate Sean Whalen in Denver. Their practices span a breadth of sector-specific capabilities, from employee benefits and executive compensation to real estate, corporate boards, and all types of domestic and international transactions. 

Law360 recently spoke with counsel Kathy Shaw on her practice and why she joined the firm. 

"I think it's a great opportunity to work with clients, and to make them aware of how employee benefits can help with succession planning, or can be a way to attract candidates who in another type of company might be offered an ownership interest," she said. Shaw added that she believed her benefits expertise would be of service to the new closely held business group.
