About Us

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 is a go-to law firm when clients need attorneys experienced in handling high-stakes litigation.  If a case is important to our client, it is important to us.  Based in Kansas City, Missouri, with another office in Prairie Village, Kansas, we have been privileged to represent clients in matters in Missouri and Kansas, the Midwest, and throughout the United States.

Founded in 1997, Berkowitz Oliver has grown to include an impressive group of approximately 30 experienced litigators, most of whom practiced at large law firms and many of whom have judicial clerkship experience in both state and federal courts.  We represent businesses, corporate officers, and individuals in civil litigation, arbitration, and white-collar defense and investigations.  Our attorneys are also committed to helping clients avoid the risk and costs of litigation, and we provide day-to-day counseling on employment, compliance, and regulatory issues, best practices, and pre-litigation strategy.

The culture of Berkowitz Oliver is what drew our attorneys to practice together.  We are committed to top-notch legal work.  We are hard-working, thoughtful, and dedicated to our clients and each other.  Most of all, we listen, consider, and respond to each client’s individual situation to achieve the client’s goals.
