Foulston Siefkin LLP Celebrates Centennial
“Founders Robert C. Foulston and George Siefkin launched our firm a century ago and set the example for who we would become,” says managing partner Kevin Arnel. “They delivered excellent legal advice and client service, and they were also people of integrity who were deeply involved in their communities. They created a culture and set expectations which still hold true for our lawyers and staff.”
Lead by Topeka native, Jim Rankin, Foulston opened the Topeka office on March 1, 1991 to better serve its clients in Northeast Kansas. Rankin served as partner-in-charge for many years, is a past president of the Topeka Bar Association, a graduate of Leadership Topeka, and serves on the Washburn University Endowment Association board.
Jeremy Graber recently assumed the role of partner-in-charge for the Topeka office. Graber is a graduate of Leadership Topeka and a member of the Greater Topeka Partnership’s Forge Young Professionals group. Partners Charles R. “Dick” Hay, Tom Theis, and Associate Lisa Brown also practice from the Topeka office.
