Dugan Schlozman  Attorneys with a clientCommercial Litigation

We represent businesses, nonprofits, and individuals involved in commercial disputes.  We’ve litigated, arbitrated, and mediated disputes regarding contracts, commercial insurance, reinsurance claims, agreements with executives and sales persons, intellectual property, and other business disputes.  We’ve represented small, medium, and large businesses in Kansas City, other parts of the United States, and Europe.  We’re also open to alternative fee arrangements to ensure that our economic incentives line up with yours.

Wage and Employment Claims

We represent employees who have been treated unfairly.  Employers sometimes find clever ways to take advantage of employees.  Many employers wrongly classify their workers as exempt from overtime laws or simply ignore overtime and minimum wage laws.  Some employers discriminate in payment or terminate employees for improper reasons.  If you have been denied overtime, discriminated against, harassed, or terminated, contact us to look for a solution.

Environmental Law

We represent individuals, property owners, and environmental groups in enforcement litigation under the environmental statutes, like the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act.  Those who violate environmental laws steal our right to clean air and water, spoil our recreational opportunities, and gain an unfair competitive advantage.  Government agencies, like the Environmental Protection Agency and its counterparts, have the primary responsibility to enforce environmental laws, but limited resources sometimes prevent them from fully enforcing the law.  It’s then that citizens affected by pollution can step in and bring their own enforcement actions.  We are here to help.

“The River as plaintiff speaks for the ecological unit of life that is part of it. Those people who have a meaningful relation to that body of water – whether it be a fisherman, a canoeist, a zoologist, or a logger – must be able to speak for the values which the river represents and which are threatened with destruction.”

Justice William O. Douglas,
dissenting in Sierra Club v. Morton, 405 U.S. 727 (1972).
