If, every year, the unveiling of the Am Law 100 provides many firms cause for celebration, for others, it’s a time to lament. That’s certainly the case for firms that were previously on the list and now find themselves on the outside looking in.

In 2019, that list included two firms, both based in Missouri: St. Louis’ Husch Blackwell and Kansas City’s Shook Hardy & Bacon. But a walk down memory lane offers roughly 30 other names—some defunct, others subsumed by mergers, some deemed ineligible and still others paddling along in the Am Law 200.
