IBJ May14 Page 17 Image 0001The firm also has seen an increased number of bankruptcy and reorganization cases, another area in which MM&R’s attorneys have carved a niche and are held in high esteem for their work throughout Southern Illinois.

    I am proud of the firm’s commitment to community service and towards art and education. For the past 12 years, MM&R has awarded annual scholarships to area students interested in becoming a lawyer.   We also sponsor the High School Sculpture in the City program through Belleville’s annual Art on the Square festival, which takes place literally on the doorstep of the firm’s office in downtown Belleville.”

    “St. Louis Regional Airport continues to attract both aeronautical and non-aeronautical business.

    Opportunities abound for growing companies that need to move products and people. Leasing here means exceptional access to warehousing and world-class intermodal air, highway, rail, and barge transportation.

    Most important, overhead at the airport is low. The airport is governed by an independently empowered airport authority and managed by professional administrators so you work directly with local people who care about your success. IBJ May14 Page 17 Image 0002The airport provides two hard-surface runways for both day and night operations, published FAA certified instrument approaches for modern GPS or legacy equipment, 24/7 security, and fulltime airport rescue and fire fighters. There is ample free parking whether your customers come by airplane or auto.

     There are over 500 jobs on the airport in aviation and a wide assortment of other fields. Call me for a tour of the facility and see why the St. Louis Regional Airport is open for business--your business.”
