Brian Rogers is an attorney with the soul of an entrepreneur. He understands that those building businesses do so as an extension of themselves. Their business is an investment not just of money but also their hearts. When it comes to his profession, Brian is first and foremost a highly qualified attorney recognized by colleagues and clients as an expert in his field. Added to that is Brian’s love of small business and his empathy for the entrepreneur. This combination of legal expertise, business knowledge, and caring makes Brian uniquely positioned to support small business creation and growth.
After years of providing effective legal services to numerous business clients as an attorney at various firms, Brian decided to pursue his own entrepreneurial dream and formed Blue Maven Law, LLC. This new firm is built on the standards he believes best support business development and growth. Importantly, these ideals represent Brian’s own persona in both his professional and personal life.
Brian is known as a qualified and effective attorney. He is active in a wide array of business activities and organizations and serves as committee chairman and board director for several of them.
Perhaps more important is how Brian is regarded as a person. Caring. Friendly. Intelligent. Likable. Humorous. Curious. Thorough. It is Brian’s genuine and authentic approach to life and those he meets which make him stand out as a person and an attorney.
Brian has his JD from the University of Missouri, where he served as managing editor of the Missouri Law Review and graduated Order of the Coif. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Letters from the University of Oklahoma and graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. Brian is the former chair and the current vice chair of the Missouri Bar’s Business Law Committee and the chairman for the Small Business Week initiative in St. Louis having served as a member for years. He serves as secretary of Missouri Venture Forum, Inc. and Small Business Week of Eastern Missouri, Inc. and is a member of the Association for Corporate Growth. Brian lives in St. Louis with his wife, Andrea, and dogs, Jack and Sophie (and cat, Rocky).
