ST. LOUIS – International Alliance of Law Firms Selects Evans & Dixon as Member. Firm will provide client service in Missouri and Kansas.

The International Alliance of Law Firms, a worldwide legal association of 62 firms in 42 countries, announces that Evans & Dixon (www.evans-dixon.com) has been admitted as the Missouri member.

This follows an extensive effort to assess and credential potential member firms in these critical markets.

Colin Cohen, president of the Alliance and a name partner with the Hong Kong firm of Boase Cohen and Collins said, "We're honored to have Evans & Dixon in the Alliance. Their addition advances our strategy of providing clients predictable, high quality worldwide legal service."

Evans & Dixon is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri and was founded in 1945 as an insurance defense firm serving Liberty Mutual Insurance Company. The firm grew quickly and had an early specialization in Workers' Compensation. Later the firm added a complex commercial litigation practice group and substantially expanded its business transactional practice.

Today, the firm has 81 attorneys with offices in St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield, and St. Charles. The firm provides 80% of the Fortune 500 companies in Missouri with creative solutions, alternative fee arrangements, new staffing models and a full service business and litigation practice.

"We are excited to be part of this international network of phenomenal law firms," said Mark R. Kornblum, managing shareholder of Evans & Dixon. "Our membership enables us to provide our clients with the highest levels of service and knowledge wherever their business or personal legal needs may arise. We also look forward to assisting the clients of other Alliance firms when they need counsel in Missouri."

Wendy Horn, Executive Director of the Alliance commented, "Evans & Dixon is a perfect member firm for our organization. They are dynamic, highly talented, and successful with a first class U.S. and international client base in our key business sectors. They are team players and match our international model: independent firms bound by common quality standards and business culture, not merger."

The Alliance is a network of mid-sized law firms formed in 1998 to provide clients with global legal services. For more information, visit www.ialawfirms.com.
