Armstrong Teasdale Announces Newly Elected Committee Members

June 5, 2023 Press Releases

Armstrong Teasdale has elected three new members to its Executive Committee and one member to its Compensation Committee, effective June 1, 2023.

Those elected to serve on Armstrong Teasdale’s Executive Committee, which functions as the governing board of the firm, include Partners Richard Brophy, Maureen Bryan and Joseph Hipskind, Jr. for a three-year term.

Partner Jeff Schultz was re-elected to the firm’s Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee is responsible for the allocation of compensation to firm equity partners, and Schultz will serve a three-year term.

“The firm’s equity partnership has placed trust in those elected based on their outstanding legal skills, commitment to client service and demonstrated leadership abilities,” said Managing Partner Patrick Rasche. “I’m confident they will serve the firm well in their respective capacities.”

Brophy has a proven track record of trying and winning complex intellectual property cases across the United States. He has earned a particular reputation for winning cases by dismantling opposing expert witnesses in deposition and on the stand. His practice encompasses many areas of complex civil litigation, but he focuses primarily on disputes involving patents, trademarks, copyrights and antitrust violations.

Bryan leads the firm’s Health Care and Life Sciences industry team, and is in part responsible for many of Missouri’s top ranking defense verdicts. As a member of the firm’s award-winning Mass Tort and Catastrophic Loss practice area, she defends clients in litigation alleging catastrophic injuries as a result of medical malpractice, products liability and premises liability. In addition, she represents clients in matters involving breach of protected health information.

Hipskind counsels clients on a wide range of corporate and franchise matters and real estate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, commercial and residential development, leasing and commercial finance. He has extensive experience representing franchisees, retailers, homebuilders, auto dealers, commercial tenants and sports facility owners across the U.S.

Schultz is an experienced business litigator and trial lawyer who has extensive knowledge about the field of data security and privacy. This background led him to be named leader of the firm’s Data Innovation, Security and Privacy practice area and co-chair of the Noncompete and Trade Secrets practice area. Further, Schultz is a Certified Information Privacy Professional in the U.S. (CIPP/US).
