The Missouri Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association launched in November 2016 and is comprised of dynamic female litigators with diverse experiences. The Missouri Chapter primarily is focused on the St. Louis metropolitan area, but also extends across Missouri.

Members of the Missouri Chapter are investigators, trial attorneys, and appellate advocates. Our members include former AUSAs, attorneys experienced in high-profile internal investigations, attorneys who have successfully litigated allegations of fraud and violations of the False Claims Act, and attorneys who have tried to verdict white collar defense matters.

The Missouri Chapter meets quarterly and plans to participate regularly in the annual national conference. Our primary goal is to develop a strong and reliable network of female attorneys with whom we may collaborate, both locally and nationally, on matters involving white collar crime, internal investigations, and corporate compliance. Our attorneys intend to work in partnership with national members of the Women’s White Collar Defense Association, and to eagerly share our talent nationwide. We look forward to joining the ranks of such extraordinary female attorneys across the country.
