The addition of Yawitz to the St. Louis office occurs during an exciting period of growth for Polsinelli Shughart. The firm opened new offices in Dallas and Los Angeles, and added more than 40 attorneys nationwide last year. The National Law Journal ranked Polsinelli Shughart in 2011 as “the third-fastest growing law firm in the country.”
