George M. von Stamwitz, a partner at Armstrong Teasdale and leader of the firm’s Environmental practice group, has been named the Best Lawyers’ 2011 St. Louis Environmental Lawyer of the Year. After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers designates “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”
With more than 25 years of legal experience and 10 years of environmental risk transfer consulting, von Stamwitz has seen environmental risk in every conceivable business and regulatory context. He is also president of AT Environmental, LLC (www.atenv.com), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Armstrong Teasdale. In this role, von Stamwitz provides strategic environmental evaluations and risk transfer design services to national and international companies interested in divesting of environmental risk.
Von Stamwitz received his J.D., cum laude, from Saint Louis University School of Law in 1982 and his B.A., summa cum laude, from Tufts University in 1979.
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” received particularly high ratings in our surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
