Baillon and Thome Named to 2022 Minnesota Lawyer’s POWER 30

Wanta Thome PLC attorneys Frances Baillon and Joni Thome were named to the Minnesota Lawyer’s POWER 30 list for the 2022 edition. Minnesota Lawyer focused on “employment lawyers whose mere presence on a case signifies the stakes, who have influenced the direction of the law, whose leadership in the community is pervasive and whose respect within the bar is undeniable.”1  Selections to the POWER 30 are based on careful research, interviews, and case outcomes.

Frances and Joni were two of the founders of Baillon Thome Jozwiak and Wanta in 2011.  At the start of 2023, Joni Thome with Shawn Wanta founded Wanta Thome PLC.  Joni and Frances continue to work together as experienced advocates for employees who have been treated unfairly by their employers.
