Beckemeier LeMoine Law was born out of a partnership between Jim Beckemeier and Bryan LeMoine. Building upon The Beckemeier Law Firm’s rich history, Jim and Bryan believed they could achieve more for their clients and surrounding communities together in one firm. Since its inception, Beckemeier LeMoine Law has grown quickly, and is now growing again, adding Carol Sparks of Sparks Law Office as a new member and opening an office in Troy, Illinois, effective January 1, 2023.
Raised by entrepreneurs and having actively participated in her family business, Carol understands the importance of a team-oriented approach in advising small businesses. The ability of a team to provide a wide array of legal and strategic services to small businesses is essential to their long-term success and the fulfillment of the owners’ legacies. She is excited to join Jim, Bryan, and the other partners of Beckemeier LeMoine Law – F. Shabnam Nouraie, Andrew Bleyer, and Josh Richardson. Carol plans to continue to offer comprehensive strategic planning and protection for small business entrepreneurs and their families so that they can grow their business and plan for their future. Her clients will benefit from additional support of the Beckemeier LeMoine Law team in the areas of business law, real estate transactions, estate planning and estate administration, as well as the advice and experience in labor and employment law, pension and benefits issues, and commercial and fiduciary litigation. Together, they will provide a more experienced team of practitioners that are individually and collectively focused on client success.
Beckemeier LeMoine Law and the Sparks Law Office have spent the last year evaluating this combination to ensure that both firms’ clients would benefit from their shared values and commitment in the way they represent and advocate for their clients. Both firms emphasize common values — they are intentional, relational, and client-focused. Whether working with businesses, large or small, or with families looking to build a legacy plan or administer the estate of a loved one, they meet each client where they are. Each client receives unrivaled legal services. This coming together represents a strategic investment and commitment by both firms to Missouri and Illinois, and to the communities and individual clients they serve.
