Overview

Ginny advises and represents employers in a broad range of labor and employment matters arising under both state and federal law.

Prior to joining Constangy, Brooks & Smith, LLP, Ginny practiced at a general civil litigation firm in St. Louis, Missouri. She gained extensive experience defending national financial institutions in litigation involving mortgages and trusts, working on class action cases for tobacco clients, helping a telecommunications company respond to consumer protection claims, and represented agricultural entities in business and contract disputes.
