Missouri Lawyers Media Names Trio for Litigation and Leadership Honors

Missouri Lawyers Media has named Shook Partner Brandon Gutshall and Of Counsel Christopher Wray as “Up and Coming Lawyers” for 2021. Partner Sarah Lynn Baltzell has been selected as a “Law Firm Leader.” 

The publication selects early-career lawyers for these honors based on their professional accomplishments, skill and leadership beyond their years and an extraordinary commitment to their communities. 

Baltzell focuses her practice on litigation avoidance strategies for the insurance industry and is chair of Shook’s Associates Committee. Gutshall serves large clients facing product and premises liability claims in the automotive and design and construction sectors, among other areas, in state and federal courts. Wray represents Fortune 500 companies in high-profile and high-stakes appeals before state supreme courts and the U.S. Court of Appeals.

Missouri Lawyers Media will recognize the trio, along with the other honorees across the state, at an awards luncheon in St. Louis, September 29.
