Lathrop GPM’s Ben Keller Named a Missouri “ICON”


St. Louis, MO (April 24, 2020) – Missouri Lawyers Media honored Lathrop GPM’s Bennett S. Keller with one of its 26 Missouri ICON awards of 2020. Partner in Charge of Lathrop GPM’s St. Louis office, Keller is recognized for maintaining “notable and sustained leadership both within and beyond the field of law.”

A Trusts, Estates & Legacy Planning attorney for more than 30 years, Keller represents some of the most prestigious members of the St. Louis community and several top executives from Fortune 500 companies nationwide on matters involving estate and business succession planning, probate law, tax controversy and shareholder dispute matters. Keller also serves as an adjunct professor with Washington University’s School of Law, and previously served on the Advisory Committee to the Supreme Court of Missouri, the Durable Power of Attorney Subcommittee, the Missouri Region X Disciplinary Committee, and on Missouri’s Tourism Commission under Gov. Jay Nixon.

Leading and growing the St. Louis office since he joined the firm in 2007 and a former member of the firm’s Executive Committee, Keller holds the respect of fellow firm leaders, attorneys and office staff. “Ben’s greatest leadership quality is his ability to relate to, and invest time in, employees at all levels of the firm – whether attorney or staff,” said St. Louis Office Manager Dianne Feltz.

Keller will be honored at the 2020 ICON Awards luncheon, currently scheduled for August 12, and will be featured in a special section of Missouri Lawyers Weekly that same week.
