W & T congratulates Senior Shareholder, Richard Thies, who was recognized in today’s Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette as a member of the inaugural class of “Seventy Over 70.” Richard Thies continues his “commitment to bettering others” through the important work he performs for firm clients, through his service to the bar and community, and through the strong foundation his wife Marilyn and he have laid for their family. A banquet honoring this year’s recipients of the award has been set for April 4.
