Armstrong Teasdale Partner Untress “Trez” Quinn and Associate Paul Brusati have been selected for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s (LCLD) Fellows and Pathfinder Programs for 2022. Quinn was named a Fellow, and Brusati was named a Pathfinder.
The Fellows Program is designed for diverse, high-potential, mid-career attorneys at LCLD member organizations to provide Fellows with professional and personal development opportunities, leadership training, relationship-building opportunities and access to LCLD members (managing partners and general counsel). The Pathfinder Program is designed to connect high-potential, early-career attorneys from preeminent organizations for a six- to seven-month professional development series that focuses on foundational leadership skills, professional networking and relationship building skills, and career development strategies.
Quinn is a seasoned trial lawyer, focusing his practice on representing clients in disciplinary hearings in health care and educational settings, health care internal investigations, and the defense of medical malpractice and other catastrophic loss lawsuits. He has defended multiple complex litigation cases in both state and federal courts involving civil rights, product liability, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. He has also represented health care clients under investigation by federal and state agencies and in the review of internal policies to conform with best health care practices.
A member of the firm’s Litigation practice group, Brusati focuses on contract and commercial litigation defense and appellate law in both state and federal court. His appellate experience ranges from cases involving employment, products liability, tax, medical malpractice, family law, personal injury, real estate and insurance issues, to felony criminal appeals. He has briefed and argued cases in the Supreme Court of Missouri, the Missouri Court of Appeals, and the federal appellate courts. In addition, he works as a volunteer attorney for the Missouri Coalition for the Right to Counsel.
