Kansas City, Mo. – November 4, 2019 – Rouse Frets White Goss attorney Bill Moore received the coveted Richard A. King award at the 2019 Missouri Economic Development Finance Association/MEDFA conference held October 3-4 at the Crossroads Hotel in Kansas City.

Bill was chosen due to his dedication to municipal and private developer clients in implementing economic development incentives.  Richard A.

Bill is the second Rouse Frets attorney to receive the honor with Michael T. White receiving the award in 2010.  The dual awards result in the law firm being the only firm with two winners of the prestigious honor.
