Alan Simpson Honored with Missouri Lawyers Weekly 2017 Up & Coming Award

Graves Garrett Associate Alan Simpson was recently selected for the 2017 Missouri Lawyers Weekly Up & Coming Award. The award recognizes attorneys who are 40 and younger or in their first 10 years of practice who are positively affecting the legal profession in Missouri and have demonstrated the potential for significant future success.

Simpson stands out in several ways. As an active member of the firm’s free speech and election law practice, he counsels and represents clients on a range of political law issues, including state and federal campaign finance regulations, government ethics matters, nonprofit organizations, and initiative petitions. He also represents the firm’s clients in complex commercial litigation and white collar criminal defense cases.

Before joining Graves Garrett, Simpson served as a law clerk to the Hon. Julie A. Robinson in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas and the Hon. Arthur I. Harris in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

In addition, Simpson donates his time to several professional organizations. He serves as Secretary of the Young Lawyers Section of the Lawyers Association of Kansas City and is 2017 member of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association’s Bar Leadership Academy. Simpson is also a member of the Federalist Society, The Missouri Bar, and the Kansas Bar Association.

Simpson, along with other 2017 Up and Coming award winners, will be honored at an awards ceremony on October 6, 2017 at the Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis.
