About Us

Berkowitz Oliver is a litigation boutique dedicated to excellence in legal work and client service. Based in Kansas City, we have been privileged to represent clients in matters in the Midwest and throughout the United States.

Founded in 1997, Berkowitz Oliver has grown to include approximately 30 experienced litigators, many of whom practiced at large law firms and have judicial clerkship experience. Our client list includes large Fortune 500 companies, as well as smaller, local entities and individuals. We represent businesses and corporate officers in civil litigation, arbitration, and criminal 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 and consulting.

Our litigation experience covers a broad range of areas including employment, products liability, securities, unfair competition, white-collar criminal defense, automobile franchise, employee benefits, and professional liability (e.g., accounting, tax). We have handled the most sophisticated and complex matters, as well as higher-volume litigation dockets for specific clients.

We have offices on both sides of the state line in the Kansas City metro area: one in the Crown Center area in Kansas City, Missouri, and one in Prairie Village, Kansas.

The culture of Berkowitz Oliver is what drew our attorneys to practice together.  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.
