Armstrong Teasdale Attorney Receives The Missouri Bar Foundation 2017 W. Oliver Rasch Award

June 29, 2017 Press Releases

Litigation partner Christopher R. LaRose has been selected to receive The Missouri Bar Foundation 2017 W. Oliver Rasch Award. The award recognizes outstanding substantive articles appearing in the Journal of the Missouri Bar.

The article, titled “A Practical Guide to Shareholder Disputes Involving Closely Held Companies,” ran in the May/June 2016 issue. In it, the authors provide an overview of shareholder disputes in Missouri and the types of claims available to a complaining shareholder, as well as the controlling shareholder conduct that may support such claims, the remedies available to minority shareholders and the defenses against such claims.

LaRose is a trial lawyer who focuses on complex business disputes, banking litigation and white-collar cases in both state and federal courts. He represents clients in a variety of commercial cases involving shareholder disputes, fraud, fiduciary duty issues, trust cases, contract actions, real estate disputes, noncompete litigation, and life, health and E&O insurance cases in state courts, including Missouri, Illinois, California and Pennsylvania, and in federal court. In addition to his trial experience, LaRose has also argued before the Missouri Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of Missouri and represented clients in arbitrations.

Further, LaRose will be recognized in a video presentation at the awards luncheon during the Missouri Bar Annual Meeting in September.

The W. Oliver Rasch Award was created by the editorial board of the Journal of the Missouri Bar to honor a late longtime member and former chair of the board. A number of other Armstrong Teasdale attorneys have received the prestigious honor in the past, including partners Jeffrey Schultz, Michael B. Kass and Darren K. Sharp, and senior counsel Laurence R. Tucker.
