"A good lawyer, he's knowledgeable and friendly."
This content is provided by Robert Tomaso
After practicing labor and employment law for almost 30 years, Bob easily anticipates problems and strategizes solutions for clients as they navigate the complex area of human resources.
As managing partner of the firm’s St. Louis office and a former member of the Executive Board, Bob has spent more than 20 years in senior law firm management positions, providing him a unique perspective that carries over to his clients. He has a great deal of empathy for clients because he has experienced many of the same challenges and opportunities that he helps them address.
As the son of a union shop steward, Bob’s interest in labor and employment was instilled early in life. He enjoys employment law generally because it is so personal and relatable – rooted in the human dynamics of the workplace.
Bob has served as first chair in numerous federal and state court trials involving the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and employment discrimination, and he has obtained summary judgment for defendants in more than 50 employment discrimination lawsuits. He has defended appeals of favorable employment decisions before the Seventh, Eighth and Tenth U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court.
