Wanta Thome PLC is proud to announce that firm partner Frances Baillon was selected to the 2020 edition of the Minnesota 500, a publication that profiles the 500 most powerful business leaders across an array of industries in the state. Frances was listed in the Law- Labor and Employment category for her role as a founding partner of Wanta Thome PLC and for her success as a leading employment attorney in Minnesota.
The Minnesota 500 is an annual publication produced by Greenspring Media, the publisher of Minnesota Monthly magazine. The editors start with a list of over 7,000 executives and look at the impact each business leader has in their industry, the success of their company under their direction, accolades in their professional sphere, and other factors to narrow the list down to the top 500.
Frances Baillon co-founded Wanta Thome PLC in 2011, along with Joni Thome, Chris Jozwiak and Shawn Wanta. Her profile in the Minnesota 500 highlights her passion for representing employees who have been treated unfairly by the illegal practices of employers. Frances has successfully argued cases before the Minnesota Supreme Court and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. She has been named to the lists of Super Lawyers, Rising Stars, Top 50 Minnesota Women Super Lawyers, Top 100 Minnesota Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America. We congratulate Frances on this latest well-deserved recognition.
