Stinson LLP added three partners and an associate with experience in mergers and acquisitions, who all previously worked for St. Louis-based law firm Armstrong Teasdale LLP.
David Kim was added as a partner and Michael Grigsby as an attorney in Kansas City. Tessa Trelz and David Jennings were added as partners in the Kansas City-based firm’s St. Louis office.
“These attorneys add tremendous depth and breadth to our Corporate Finance group,” Stinson partner Jack Bowling said in a Wednesday release. “Their impressive backgrounds in technology-related business transactions will be of great benefit to our clients, as will their strong track records on complex, high-value corporate matters.”
Kim has 13 years of experience as a financial services attorney. In addition to financial transactions, Kim has a specialty in immigration and block chain technology and digital currencies. Kim left Kansas City-based law firm Van Osdol PC in 2017 to join Armstrong Teasdale’s then-new corporate services department. He’s also a founding member of the Asian American Bar Association of Kansas City.
Grigsby, who earned his law degree from the University of Kansas in 2015, has worked for both Van Osdol as well as Armstrong Teasdale. He speaks fluent Cantonese and has significant experience in data privacy issues and regulation.
Trelz spent the past 32 years at Armstrong Teasdale practicing corporate and business services law. She frequently handles joint ventures, licensing arrangements, outsourcing and other strategic commercial transactions in which technology and intellectual property assets are key. She’s also active in efforts to advance women in the law and has received both an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters and the Chancellor’s Women Trailblazer Award from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
Jennings has 23 years of legal experience. He specializes in counseling technology-based businesses, universities and emerging companies on intellectual property development and commercialization matters, including all types of licensing, software services, sponsored research and other contract negotiations and enforcement.
The Kansas City Business Journal is accepting nominations for the 21st annual Women Who Mean Business awards program. Twenty-five women will be recognized for their career accomplishments and contributions to the business community.
