Greim leads CLE for legal community on topic of election and campaign finance law

Graves Garrett partner Eddie Greim recently led a CLE session on election and campaign finance law for a gathering of about 50 attorneys, federal judges, and judicial clerks at the Charles Evans Whittaker United States Courthouse in Kansas City, Missouri. Chuck Hatfield, an attorney at Stinson, was also part of the conversation.

The presentation looked at the conflict between the First Amendment and state regulation of political campaigns, with a particular focus on the similarities and differences between Missouri, Kansas, and the federal government. With Hatfield, Greim also discussed and critiqued a January 2020 Missouri Supreme Court decision, decided 5-2, that invalidated Missouri’s latest voter ID law.

Those in attendance were able to receive CLE credit in Missouri or Kansas.

At Graves Garrett, Greim focuses his practice on free speech and election law, complex commercial litigation, internal investigations and whistleblower claims. 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.
