WICHITA — St. Louis-based Reeg Lawyers has expanded to Wichita.
"It just seemed to us that there's a lot of opportunity out there," Kurt Reeg says.
"I do a lot of work with farm and ag groups and trade associations," he says. “I was just getting feedback from some of our clients that they thought there was a need for some more experienced legal talent out there that knew the ag industry."
Reeg has practiced law for 32 years. His firm, which includes seven lawyers, is not quite nine years old.
Initially there will be two lawyers in the firm’s 2,900-square-foot Wichita office at River Park Place, which is at 727 N. Waco.
The practice will include agriculture and farm law, environmental law and alternative dispute resolution among other things.
Reeg, who opened the office Monday, also opened a third one in Center, Mo. He's been looking to expand for a while.
"I only want to do that when it makes sense."
He decided that offering his services to Wichitans makes sense because "they wanted more help, and we had help to offer."
