Name Alexandra Haar

Beth Bauer and Alexandra Haar have been named by Missouri Lawyer with its “Top Defense Wins of 2021” award. An event honoring all Top Verdicts & Settlements Honorees will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Chesterfield on 1/27.

Last fall, Bauer and Haar were part of the trial team that secured a defense verdict for Johnson & Johnson and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. in a more than three-week trial where three plaintiffs claimed their ovarian cancer was caused by the use of talc-based body powder. The jury in that case rendered unanimous verdicts for both defendants on all claims of all plaintiffs.

Bauer, a partner in the firm’s Edwardsville office, focuses her practice on the defense of complex, multi-party civil cases and class actions and commercial disputes. She has also handled numerous appellate matters, including before the Seventh and Eighth Circuits, as well as Missouri and Illinois appellate courts. She is rated an AV Preeminent Attorney by Martindale-Hubbell and has been selected to the list of both Illinois Super Lawyers and Illinois Leading Lawyers. She was previously named one of Illinois Super Lawyers’ Top Women Attorneys.

Haar, a partner in the firm’s St. Louis office, also represents clients in the defense of complex litigation matters, including pharmaceutical products, religious/school institution cases, and personal injury. In addition, she handles criminal matters through the Missouri Coalition for Right to Counsel. She has been named to Lawyers of Color’s inaugural list of the Nation’s Best Lawyers.

HeplerBroom is pleased to announce that its physical offices have reopened. While the health and safety of our clients, employees, and families, remain our top priority, HeplerBroom attorneys and staff are returning to our offices on full-time or modified schedules. Our offices are open to visitors and clients with scheduled appointments, with appropriate screening of visitors and social-distancing protocols. HeplerBroom will continue to follow CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing.

We are very proud of the dedicated efforts of our attorneys and staff to provide great service and work product to our clients during the pandemic. This would not have been possible without the incredible support provided by the HeplerBroom IT Department and other essential personnel who supported our personnel and clients from the office locations while the rest of our teams worked remotely.

If you have questions about visiting our offices, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in person again in the near future.
