Co-Chairmen David A. Fenley and Joseph P. Conran and Partners James M. Ash, A. Sidney Katz and Curt J. Chase were quoted in The American Lawyer's May 2009 article profiling the firm's arrival to the AmLaw 100, the list of the 100 largest law firms in America.
The article examined Husch Blackwell's unique position in the AmLaw 100: one of only seven firms with no New York office and no plans to open one there.
"[Husch Blackwell is] uniquely able to deliver an East Coast - or West Coast - quality practice at Midwestern rates," said David Snively, Monsanto general counsel and client of the firm. "I would say there's a real opportunity these days for a firm like that."
