Armstrong Teasdale, St. Louis
Jeff McPherson has returned to the Missouri Supreme Court and other appellate courts for high stakes appeals again and again. Last year, he did so for his own firm.
Last year, he defended his own firm in the Missouri Supreme Court against a claim that tried to rope in a firm attorney’s alleged conduct into an employment discrimination claim. The high court determined that the claim couldn’t stand because there was no employee-employer relationship between the firm and the plaintiff.
In 2018, McPherson helped win a high court ruling certifying that the Missouri Conservation Commission can regulate private preserves dedicated to breeding and hunting deer and elk.
McPherson has been a finalist for multiple judicial vacancies, including the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District. In 2020, he received the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis’ President’s Award.
McPherson clerked for Missouri Supreme Court Judge Ann K. Covington after earning his degree from Saint Louis University in 1994.
