Up and Coming Lawyer: Nathan Leming ‘05
When associate attorney Nathan Leming was named “Up & Coming Lawyer” in Missouri Lawyers Weekly, he was both shocked and honored.
“I was very surprised,” Leming explains. “It’s a big honor. Missouri Lawyers Weekly is nationally recognized and everybody that practices law reads it.” Missouri Lawyers Weekly is an industry publication that covers news in law practices and court decisions. Its title for “Up & Coming Lawyer” is given to those who are under 40 years old, or within 10 years of their practice, and it recognizes their work, as well as their academic history and community involvement.
Nate Leming is a 2005 Drury graduate with a major in International Political Studies, with minors in German, Global Studies, and Modern European Studies. After graduating from Drury, Nate attended law school at Missouri University in Columbia, MO. He currently works as an associate attorney at Williams Venker & Sanders LLC. His practice includes transportation law, products liability, insurance defense, premises liability, and healthcare/employment practices. “Basically, whatever the firm focuses on, that’s what I focus on,” Leming says when talking about the firm. “I’m very happy at Williams Venker & Sanders. It’s a medium-sized firm and that fits me…I’m very happy where I am.” Nate, along with several other Missouri lawyers, will be officially honored and recognized at a reception held on September 13th.
