Kenneth Thompson was recognized as a "2018 Influential Marylander" by the Maryland Daily Record for his work as a trial attorney. Thompson is best known in his home state of Maryland, where he represents everyone from county officials involved in civil suits to developers challenged by stalled projects because of other parties' claims. He's also called upon by his clients to perform risk assessments for companies, including those completed in connection with due diligence investigations.

Thompson is a lifelong Marylander, having attended Baltimore public schools and the University of Maryland, College Park for undergraduate and law school.

"I love its geographic diversity — from the waterways on the Eastern Shore to the mountains in the western part of the state," he said.

It has inspired him to focus his philanthropic efforts to improve the quality of education for young people in Baltimore, particularly the disenfranchised, through his positions on the board of trustees for the Baltimore Community Foundation and Center Stage.

Influential Marylanders was created to honor individuals who have made significant impacts in their field and continue to be leaders in Maryland. These individuals are selected by The Daily Record’s editors for their significant contributions to their respective fields and for their leadership in Maryland in the following areas: civic leadership, communications, education, finance, freestyle, general business, health care, law, philanthropy, real estate, and technology.
