Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice Member Nathan Leming has become a member of the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC).
Founded in 1920, the IADC is a preeminent invitation-only global legal organization for attorneys of high professional standing who represent corporate and insurance interests. Comprised of approximately 2500 corporate and defense attorneys and executives, membership includes individuals from a majority of the companies listed in the FORTUNE 500.
IADC’s stated core purpose is to enhance the development of skills, professionalism, and camaraderie to serve and benefit the members, their clients, as well as the civil justice system, the legal profession and society in general. It is a founding member of both the Defense Research Institute (DRI) and Lawyers for Civil Justice (LCJ).
The IADC employs a rigorous membership vetting process. Outside counsel nominations require one IADC member to nominate an individual and two IADC members to sponsor an individual. The Membership Committee reviews nominations and seeks input from IADC members in the nominee’s state or region, after which the committee presents nominations to the Board of Directors for approval. The board offers approved nominees the opportunity to join.
“Being invited to join such a prestigious defense association is an honor,” said Leming. “I look forward to building friendships and business relationship with my fellow members.”
Leming, based in the firm’s St. Louis office, practices in the areas of commercial, employment and labor, medical malpractice, premises, product liability, and professional and management liability, throughout the Midwest. He regularly works with in house counsel, claims adjusters and administrators, national and local counsel for large commercial businesses, as well as risk managers and hospital and nursing home administrators.
