Recipients were nominated by other lawyers throughout the metropolitan area. Once the votes were tallied, a panel of accomplished attorneys reviewed the list and made a final check of each honoree’s reputation and professional standing. The list was published in the Aug. 24 edition of the Kansas City Business Journal, along with a quote from each attorney.

Bien is the chair of the firm’s litigation division, where his practice involves the defense of class action claims; life, health and disability insurance defense; ERISA; general business and financial litigation; insurance professional liability litigation; insurance coverage litigation and real estate litigation.
