Congratulations to our Franchise & Distribution practice group. The group was recently honored in the 2012 edition of the International Who's Who Legal of Franchise Lawyers. The publication dubbed our group a "Midwestern Powerhouse", which includes John Baer, Leonard Vines, Beata Krakus, and Chris Feldmeir. See the excerpt from the publication below:

"Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, P.C. sees four of its lawyers honored in our rankings, among whom Chicago managing partner John Baer stands 'pre-eminent'. One of the most highly regarded lawyers in our research overall, Baer brings extensive transactional and corporate law experience to his work on behalf of national and international franchise and distribution clients, and, until this year, was chair of the Illinois attorney general's franchise advisory board. An additional listing in Chicago, alongside a further two in St. Louis, justifies the firm's reputation as a "Midwestern powerhouse".
