According to her colleagues, Beatrice Thorson has transformed Milwaukee-based law firm Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP in almost every way possible.
“She has instituted so many policies throughout the firm to make things more efficient, cost-effective and easier in general,” said Britt Frank, marketing director. “Bea did a software change/build-out entirely on her own and was in charge of the complete overhaul that allowed more security, better billing practices and paperless capabilities.”
“Without Bea’s innovation and handling of the new software, the staff would not have been able to work from home during the pandemic. Besides this, she continues to handle the monthly billing process, including all execution and client interaction. Through these changes and diligence, Bea has saved the firm tens of thousands of dollars,” said Frank.
According to her supervisor Erin Strohbehn, “Bea has been a game changer for this firm. We were in desperate need of updating in so many ways, and she came in and put it all into place.”
