Atmore is also gaining prominence in Minnesota’s legal community through her work with Minnesota Women Lawyers and her high-impact pro bono service, including on a voting rights case that resulted in recently passed legislation and for which she won Stoel Rives’ “Andrew Guy Pro Bono Award” in 2021.

Prowant has a growing commercial litigation practice specializing in agribusiness and food and beverage. He has represented major agribusiness and beverage industry clients across the country in high-stakes litigation matters.

Prowant also has a demonstrated, deeply held commitment to public service law with a focus on impact litigation that advances civil rights. He maintains an active pro bono practice and has worked on several high-profile cases that are affirming important constitutional protections in Minnesota and nationwide. Prowant received the Andrew Guy Pro Bono Award in 2022 and was recognized by the Minnesota State Bar Association as a North Star Lawyer for donating 50+ annual pro bono hours for 2021 and 2022.

As a member of the firmwide DE&IC, Atmore develops strategies and tools to achieve the firm’s aggressive DE&I goals for increasing diversity. Prowant frequently takes the lead in planning, organizing, and promoting firmwide events for the DE&IC and discussions on important and timely topics advancing diversity education.
