Missouri Lawyers Weekly has selected Spencer Fane Springfield Office Managing Partner Richard Walters as a Law Firm Leader of the Year for his successful leadership and growth of the firm in the Springfield, Mo., market.
Missouri Lawyers honored Walters at its annual awards luncheon on Jan. 29, in St. Louis, as well as in an article featuring recipients of its annual Missouri Lawyers Awards.
Walters was selected for the honor because of his instrumental role in the growth and success of the Spencer Fane Springfield office, which opened in June 2014. Missouri Lawyers reported, “Under his leadership, the Spencer Fane office more than doubled in size during its first year, growing from six attorneys to becoming home to 14 and three paralegals.”
“There’s essentially no boundary limits for us as lawyers at Spencer Fane, and in the Springfield office, to be able to handle projects from coast to coast,” Walters was quoted as telling Missouri Lawyers Weekly in its feature article on his leadership.
The publication also highlighted the firm’s increased community involvement through membership in local public service boards or volunteer opportunities. “We’re beneficiaries of our community, and we want to give back,” Walters told Missouri Lawyers.
