Husch Blackwell Chief Executive Paul Eberle and Chief Executive Elect Jamie Lawless recently spoke with Reuters to discuss Lawless succeeding Eberle in February 2024.

"I'm joining as a business person who was very drawn to the fact that the firm functions as a business," Lawless told Reuters. She said that that makes the firm ‘uncommon’ in the legal space.”

Lawless, like Eberle, does not hold a law degree. Under Eberle’s leadership, the firm has experienced growth each of the past five years.

"The results say it's working," Eberle said.

Lawless, who is based in Tampa, Florida, joins the firm’s virtual office, The Link, which has more than 200 attorneys in 29 states and Washington D.C.
