Grant D. Wiens Joins Litigation Department

The St. Louis office of Lewis, Rice & Fingersh, L.C. is pleased to announce that Grant D. Wiens has joined the Litigation Department as a member practicing in the areas of education, labor and employment, and municipal law. Grant was formerly associated with the law firm Porter Foster Rorick LLP in Seattle, WA.

Before joining Lewis Rice, Grant represented more than 70 public school districts and municipal entities throughout the state of Washington. He provided general counsel in most phases of school operations, with an emphasis on labor relations, personnel matters, school administration, student civil rights, special education, and business services. In his work with municipal corporations, Grant assisted with governance and personnel issues, development and enforcement of municipal codes, public records requests, and state sunshine regulations and served as a local prosecutor. Grant is also an experienced litigator who advises clients in a variety of labor and employment contexts: leading collective bargaining negotiations, addressing union grievances, investigating employee misconduct, coordinating discipline and termination decisions, drafting employee policies and handbooks, and responding to state and federal discrimination complaints.

"Grant is an outstanding lawyer. His breadth of unique experience in the areas of education, labor and employment, and municipal law make him a valuable addition to our department. We are very pleased to have him join our exceptional team," said Richard B. Walsh, Jr., Litigation Department Chairman.
