Lewis Rice member Ronald A. Norwood was selected to serve on The Missouri Bar's newly commissioned Special Committee on Lawyers of Color in the Profession. Recognizing a need to increase diversity and foster inclusion in the legal profession, The Missouri Bar established this Special Committee to identify practices to bolster the retention, promotion, and advancement of minority lawyers in Missouri.

The Committee will review programs and initiatives of The Missouri Bar, law firms, and other state and bar associations and recommend courses of action for the Missouri Bar to take within the next two years. Ron is one of 20 members of the Special Committee, which includes lawyers, judges, and University of Missouri School of Law Assistant Dean Emeritus Robert G. Bailey, who will serve as Chair.

As Chair of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee at Lewis Rice, Ron is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion within Lewis Rice as well as within the community. His wide-ranging legal practice includes representing national and regional banks, mortgage companies, and other financial institutions in a myriad of commercial and tort litigation matters.
