Shook, Hardy & Bacon's Midwest/Eighth and Tenth Circuit Appellate Team focuses its practice on the Missouri and Kansas Courts of Appeals, Missouri and Kansas Supreme Courts, and U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Eighth and Tenth Circuits. Strategically located in Kansas City, our team brings unmatched procedural knowledge and substantive experience to the table. Our team includes experienced oral advocates, gifted writers and appellate procedural experts, many of whom clerked for the region’s appellate courts and judiciary. As chair of the Midwest Appellate Team, Rob Adams has extensive experience arguing before the Missouri Supreme Court, Missouri Courts of Appeals and numerous federal circuit courts of appeals. Other members of our team have argued before or drafted briefs filed in the Second, Third, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeals, the Kansas Supreme Court, the Missouri Supreme Court, the Kansas Court of Appeals, and all three districts of the Missouri Court of Appeals. In addition to a comprehensive procedural knowledge of the area’s appellate courts and judiciary, we have developed particular expertise in defending claims and arguing appeals involving the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act and the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.
