Benjamin A. Lipman among Finalists for Missouri Supreme Court

Lewis Rice member Benjamin A. Lipman is among three finalists to fill a vacancy on the Missouri Supreme Court. A seat was left vacant by the death of Judge Richard Teitelman in November 2016. Lisa White Hardwick, a judge on the Missouri Court of Appeals for the Western District, and W. Brent Powell, a circuit judge in the 16th Judicial Circuit in Jackson County, join Ben as nominees for the appointment.

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens has 60 days to make his selection. If he doesn't decide within the allotted time frame, the Appellate Judicial Commission will make the appointment, per the state's constitution.

As a litigator, an intellectual property attorney and a commercial real estate transactional attorney, Ben maintains a diverse practice. He focuses much of his practice on constitutional law. As a commercial litigator for the past 25 years, Ben has handled matters for multi-national corporations, small businesses and individuals. He has practiced before the Missouri Supreme Court, the Missouri Court of Appeals, and the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, among other courts.
