The leading St. Louis-based boutique law firm is known for providing integrated solutions for clients
St. Louis (March 17, 2022) – Affinity Law Group, LLC, a leading St. Louis-based boutique law firm focused on business, M&A, estate planning, and employment law, recently celebrated its 15th anniversary.
Founded in 2007, Affinity has grown to become one of the leading law firms representing entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals, and corporate and not-for-profit executives throughout the Midwest.
The founding members – Kathleen Bilderback, Brad Crandall, Bob Guest, and Ira Potter – formed Affinity Law Group because they wanted clients to have a unique, customized, and solutions-oriented experience without having to pay the high fees of the big firms.
Kathleen Bilderback, Affinity Law Group Managing Member, said, “You learn quickly that starting a business is both exhilarating and nerve-racking, especially starting one at the cusp of the 2008 market crash. What we learned early on is that to grow over the long term, we needed to focus on our clients’ needs and invest in our team members.”
Affinity Law Group has grown over the years by attracting attorneys with a variety of legal experiences having worked in law firms, corporations, and non-profit organizations. Their staff is also unique because many of the team members have worked outside the legal industry and are able to bring a fresh perspective to internal processes and managing clients’ experiences.
The firm and individual attorneys with the firm have received national, professional, and local awards and recognition including Best Lawyers in America©, Missouri Superlawyers, and St. Louis Small Business Monthly’s Best M&A Attorneys, and Best Business Attorney.
Several years ago, Bilderback and Crandall took over the managing member leadership roles with Crandall overseeing the Corporate Practice Group, and Bilderback overseeing the Private Client Group.
“We have steadily grown and matured into a law firm that takes an integrated approach to solving our clients’ matters,” said Crandall.
The firm has seven legal practices areas, which include:
- Business Law
- Mergers & Acquisition
- Commercial Finance
- Employment Law
- Real Estate
- Estate Planning
- Probate & Trust Administration
“We are grateful for our clients and their confidence in us to represent them. We want to thank our attorneys and professional team members for being instrumental in laying the foundation for the current and future success of Affinity Law Group,” added Crandall.
