Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, St. Louis
For 11 years, Erv Switzer had a front-row seat to the inner workings of the Missouri Attorney General’s Office.
From 1994 to 2005, he served as chief counsel in the office, leading litigation on a variety of matters, from civil rights law and consumer-protection matters to antitrust compliance and trade and securities regulations.
Today, the experience he gained in the AG’s Office aids him in his white-collar practice at Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, where he serves as officer and general counsel for the firm.
He’s been at Greensfelder since 2007. He also is co-chair of Greensfelder’s appellate practice section.
During the course of his career, Switzer has led litigation in dozens of high-profile matters, from the relocation of the Rams football team to St. Louis to litigation resulting in a ban on the sale of ephedra products in the state.
He has served on the boards of governors for both The Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and the St. Louis Bar Foundation. He is also a member of the consumer protection committee leadership group under the American Bar Association’s antitrust section.
Switzer earned his law degree from Saint Louis University in 1981.
