On May 2, 2022, at the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis’s (BAMSL) Law Day Celebration, BAMSL awarded its Honorable E. Richard Webber Distinguished Lawyer Award to BB&D founding member Robert D. Blitz. The Law Day Celebration featured a keynote address by former U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill. The Distinguished Lawyer Award is the highest honor given by BAMSL. The award is given to a lawyer who has “made a great and lasting contribution to the St. Louis region in the area of law and community service, has motivated other lawyers to work in the public interest, and who exemplifies lawyers as good citizens contributing significantly to the community.” The Award recognized Bob’s career achievements, including his leadership in the St. Louis region’s high-profile litigation against the National Football League, its member teams and owners following the Rams’ relocation from St. Louis. The NFL litigation resulted in a $790 million settlement for the region.
