Graves Garrett Attorneys Coordinate Second Annual Missouri Federalist Society Meeting in Jefferson City

Graves Garrett partner Eddie Greim and associate Garrett Hunkins helped to plan and coordinate the second annual Missouri Federalist Society Meeting at the Capitol on Monday, January 29.

The event brought together an elite collection of legal professionals and government leaders for discussions on current issues in the state. “Mobs, Millionaires, & the Media: Can Fair Elections and Fundamental Rights Coexist?” included noteworthy guest speakers such as Missouri Supreme Court Judge Brent Powell, Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft and Missouri Treasurer Eric Schmitt.

Bradley A. Smith, a leading academic, former FEC commissioner and founder of the Institute for Free Speech, gave the keynote address on the status of campaign finance law in America. Greim then moderated a panel discussion on the First Amendment and campaign finance that included Smith, National Review reporter John Fund and three Missouri experts.

Greim focuses his practice at Graves Garrett on complex commercial litigation, internal investigations and whistleblower claims, and free speech and election law. His free speech and election law experience has included numerous constitutional challenges to election and campaign finance laws; representation of clients in state and federal ethics and campaign finance enforcement actions and investigations; initiative petition drafting and litigation; litigation and advice regarding First Amendment protections for petition circulation; representation of not-for-profit clients before state regulators; and advice on campaign and election law compliance.
