We are established >

Through our successful representation of regional, national, and international clients, Berkowitz Oliver has an established reputation as one of the premier litigation firms in the United States.  Berkowitz Oliver was founded in January 1997 by six trial lawyers who left a large Kansas City law firm to form their own law practice.  Their personal dedication to client service was an immediate success. Today, Berkowitz Oliver includes approximately 30 lawyers who handle all facets of litigation throughout the Midwest, across the United States, and around the world.


We have two offices: one in Kansas City, Missouri and one in Prairie Village, Kansas. In the Kansas City area, we are on a short list of law firms considered for the most complex matters and high-stakes cases.  Most of our lawyers have experience working at large law firms, and several have served as law clerks for federal and state judges at the trial and appellate level.

We are recognized >

In virtually every legal ranking guide or publication, Berkowitz Oliver and its attorneys are perennially recognized as among the most distinguished litigation counsel in the Kansas City area:


chambers14Chambers USA repeatedly ranks us as among the top litigation firms in the Kansas City area and has emphasized our reputation for being “very savvy and very good.”  It also specifically recognizes us for General Commercial Litigation, and awards specific individual honors to several of our attorneys.




US News and World Report, Best Law Firm Rankings, includes us on their short list of first-tier Kansas City law firms in both “Commercial Litigation” and “Criminal Defense–White-Collar,” and also recognizes us for “Product Liability Litigation,” “Litigation–Regulatory Enforcement,” and “Litigation–Securities.”
