Webber & Thies Shareholder John Thies spoke at the June 19 installation of new Illinois State Bar Association president, Dennis J. Orsey. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the ceremony took place at the Illinois Supreme Court rather than the usual ISBA Annual Meeting. Thies served as ISBA president from 2012-13. In the picture above, Thies is addressing those assembled, including Supreme Court Justices Rita B. Garman and Lloyd A. Karmeier, as well as those accessing the ceremony remotely. Seated to the left is Judge Vincent Cornelius, ISBA president from 2016-17 (photo courtesy of the Illinois State Bar Association).
