Tobin & Muñoz, L.L.C.


Auburn081814FBSO_AUBURSS00001Diversity of Experience Counts
for the Tough Cases

It used to be trial lawyers were the renaissance men of the legal profession. They handled all kinds of cases. They were the wily masters of the courtroom. We think of Atticus Finch in literature and, in American lore, a young Illinois attorney named Abe Lincoln.

In Chicago today, there is Tobin & Muñoz.
“We are a throwback to the old-fashioned lawyers throughout history who tried very different cases,” says Craig D. Tobin, founding partner. “Back through time, it was the truly great trial lawyers who made a difference.” …Read More



Auburn081814FBSO_AUBURSS00001Entrepreneurial Spirit Drives Innovative Technology

Bob Coughlin founded Paycor in 1990 with a modest goal: provide excellent payroll services with unmatched client care and become “relevant” in the local marketplace.

Twenty-four years and 25,000 clients later, Coughlin has built a business well beyond his initial vision. Paycor has offices in 22 U.S. cities and has surpassed the $100 million annual revenue mark, while continuing to add to its suite of cloud-based HR, timekeeping and payroll solutions.

Coughlin has never forgotten the early days of Paycor, and that entrepreneurial spirit fuels his innovative leadership and the company’s product offerings.

“When I started, I often worked until 2 a.m. and came back in early the next day to do it again. It was insane how much I was working,” Coughlin says. “When you’re building a business, you want your time freed up to grow revenue and build your reputation.”

Paycor enhances its cloud-based solutions with ongoing product updates, two-thirds of which come directly from client feedback. The solutions are designed to remove the daily obstacles that prevent business owners and corporate leaders from thinking about the
big picture.

Automating basic workflows for numerous payroll and HR tasks allows companies to streamline their processes, free up their people’s time and be more customer-responsive.

Technology can fuel any business’s growth, just as it did for Paycor.

“Technology has become the driver of where the business is going in the future. We continue to increase our investment in software development,” Coughlin says. “I take a long-term view on the business. I keep striving for how we can do better to delight our clients, our associates and our communities.”

R&R Partners

Creating, Building and Protecting Brands

One of the most iconic, successful ad campaigns of our time, “What happens here, stays here” has delivered record-breaking visitor volume and encouraged millions to claim a slice of Las Vegas adult freedom for themselves. Last year the campaign generated more than a half billion dollars in earned media value for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA).

The agency behind these remarkable results is marketing communications firm R&R Partners.

“We grew out of political campaigns on both sides of the aisle,” explains Mary Ann Mele, president, chief brand officer and principal at R&R Partners. “Elections force you to be nimble and capitalize on every weapon in your arsenal. This is also where we developed our philosophy of creating, building and protecting brands. You might call it our mantra.” …Read More
