HOPEFUL. INTERESTED. OPEN.

For Chip Robertson, practicing law is a means of serving others. “We immerse ourselves in our clients’ most important legal issues, and that gives us an opportunity to reach solutions that allow our clients to go forward.” Robertson heads up the firm’s appellate practice and class action divisions, both of which are known and respected nationally.

Robertson’s past experience gives him unique insight into the law. Appointed to the Missouri Supreme Court in 1985, he served as a judge on Missouri’s highest court until 1998, and as chief justice of that court from 1991 to 1993.
