Kevin Smith is a member of the Littler CaseSmart® team and is based in Missouri. He is responsible for early case evaluation (ECE). At the outset of each single plaintiff employment litigation matter, he identifies and reviews pertinent documents, interviews relevant witnesses, and drafts ECE reports. In keeping with each client’s litigation philosophy, Kevin partners with the local Littler litigation team and assists in developing and executing strategies for effectively handling litigation.

Before joining Littler, Kevin was a partner in the national employment litigation and policy practice group of another international firm. For nearly 20 years, he has represented employers of all sizes in employment-related disputes.

Kevin has litigated on employers’ behalf in state and federal courts across the United States. He also has advocated their positions in state and federal EEO administrative agencies.

From his earliest days as a litigator, Kevin learned the importance of early case evaluation and litigating efficiently (but litigating to win). With this approach, he has been able to consistently obtain results favorable to clients, whether through cost-effective settlements, favorable rulings on dispositive motions, jury verdicts, or appeal.
