The Launch of Beckemeier LeMoine Law

Launch of Beckemeier LeMoine Law Offers Clients A Wide Range of Business & Individualized Legal Services

New firm will focus on delivering best-in-class legal services through valuable client-attorney partnerships 

Attorneys Jim Beckemeier and Bryan LeMoine formally launched Beckemeier LeMoine Law as a new St. Louis based law firm on January 4, 2021. Bringing together a well-rounded team of reputable local attorneys, Beckemeier LeMoine Law is dedicated to providing clients trusted legal service, significant experience in a range of legal practice areas and competitive rates.

Beckemeier LeMoine Law is comprised of eight esteemed St. Louis based attorneys. The firm focuses on the following areas of law: Business Law, Civil Litigation, Labor & Employment, Real Estate, Non-Profit Counsel, Estate Planning & Probate, Religious Freedom & Expression, and International Law. F. Shabnam Nouraie and Josh Richardson join the firm as partners and R. Lynn Beckemeier joins the firm as Of Counsel.

The new firm formed when Jim Beckemeier of The Beckemeier Law Firm, LC and Bryan LeMoine, St. Louis attorney, joined forces. Both Beckemeier and LeMoine have been in private practice since 2002. Their shared vision for expanding their current and complementary practice areas while providing the highest quality of service to their clients is what fueled this new firm.

“I believe excellent legal services and solutions are delivered through an intentional and client-focused approach,” said Beckemeier. “In my experience, this approach provides long term value to our clients, and we are deeply committed to building a firm culture with those attributes as its guiding principles.”

LeMoine has long based his practice on a nearly identical philosophy.

“Lawyers and clients work best when they operate as partners, together working towards common goals,” LeMoine said. “I believe a lawyer is most effective when he or she works with a client, rather than ‘for’ a client. It’s a trusted advisor dynamic, one that each client deserves.”

“In addition to the complimentary areas of focus in our legal practice and our philosophical alignment in cultivating meaningful client relationships, Bryan and I have a shared professional respect for one another,” Beckemeier highlighted. “This is a tremendous opportunity to join forces and the right thing for our clients, now and into the future.”
