City scape of St. Louis, where Sowers & Wolf represents clients in employment law, civil rights, first amendment, and appellate law.

Protecting Your Rights in the Workplace and the Community

Sowers & Wolf is recognized as a top St. Louis employment law firm, and is one of the oldest continuing firms in the metropolitan area representing employees. We are litigators, regularly appearing in federal and state trial courts and courts of appeals, arguing employment, civil rights, and First Amendment cases.  We negotiate and draft employment and severance agreements as well as conduct investigations into harassment and discrimination.

Employment Law

Discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing

In the workplace, we represent individuals in all aspects of the employment relationship – discrimination, harassment, wrongful discharge, whistleblowing, contract disputes, and severance agreements. It is unlawful to discriminate against or treat individuals differently based upon their race, gender, age, religion, disability, or national origin.

Civil Rights

Equal protection, discrimination

In your community, we represent individuals who were victims of unequal treatment or suffered discrimination in public spaces such as schools, stores, health care facilities, or restaurants. We represent individuals who have been treated differently than others because of their race, sex, gender, religion, national origin, disability, or age.

First Amendment

Freedoms suppressed or denied

The First Amendment guarantees individuals the right to freedom of speech, assembly, press, and religion. We represent individuals who have had these rights suppressed or denied by the police, state, other governmental agency or institution.

Appellate

Advocacy from intake to appeal

We regularly appear in state and federal appellate court, and have won significant victories shaping the law in Missouri and Illinois. Sowers & Wolf not only takes a case from intake through appeal, but also co-counsels with trial attorneys post-judgment.
