OLATHE, Kan. --- Mike Yost, vice president/general counsel and principal with Terracon, has been named one of Ingram's "40 Under Forty" Class of 2009.
Yost is responsible for claims and litigation management and support, insurance coverages and policy renewals, company risk management training, and the overall management of the Legal Department. He is also co-chair of Terracon's Quality Program Committee.
He is a leader in the community, serving as the chair of the Legal Affairs Committee of ASFE The Best People on Earth (non-profit geo-professional trade organization), a member of the Legal Counsel's Forum of the American Council of Engineering Companies, and active with the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City. He previously served on the City of Belton, Mo., Planning & Zoning Commission and helped found the Habitat for Humanity of Cass County, Mo.
Established in 1998, the Ingram's "40 Under Forty" program has become recognized as one of the most respected honors in the Kansas City area. The program's purpose is to recognize young people in the Kansas City community who balance tremendous professional achievements with generosity by giving their time, energy and talents to improving the lives of others in their communities.
Yost is the second Terracon employee to be recognized with this honor as Gayle Packer, director of Corporate Services, was part of last year's class.

According to Michael J. "Mike" Yost, Esq., vice president and general counsel of GBA-member firm Terracon and chair of GBA's Legal Affairs Committee, "We wanted to produce a guide that would be particularly instructive for younger geoprofessionals and a solid refresher for some of the 'old hands.' We don't go into any significant detail about any one issue. If we started doing that, the guide would have been 500 pages long. We wanted it to be an easy read, without legalese or Latin, that would take only about 15 minutes to read, and people would come away with an understanding of the process."
Yost noted that the Committee focused on claim precursors and a few key dos and don'ts. "Being aware of claim precursors is particularly important," Yost said. "Being aware of the precursors allows geoprofessionals to intervene early, and defuse a claim before the formal elements of the process are initiated."
Among some of the key dos and don'ts are "never admit fault," which gets its own chapter, and the maintenance of files once a firm becomes aware that a claim is likely to be filed.
"Unfortunately, claims and litigation have become almost routine elements of geoprofessional practice," Yost said.
