Jill Luft Selected for Missouri Attorney General’s Office Trial Masters Program
Greensfelder Officer Jill Luft has been appointed to serve as a Trial Master in a new and innovative program implemented by Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey intended to provide training and mentorship from experienced litigators from across the state to its next generation of public-service attorneys.
The Trial Masters Program and Committee was spearheaded by Deputy Attorney General Bill Corrigan.
Trial Masters act as independent consultants and participate in monthly committee meetings with Assistant Attorneys General in either St. Louis, Kansas City, or Jefferson City to provide non-binding, discretionary guidance, including trial skills and strategies, related to pending and prospective litigation matters. Luft is one of 14 attorneys from across the state chosen for the program. The Trial Masters were sworn in at a ceremony in Jefferson City on June 21, 2023.
Corrigan noted that the selected committee members “form a ‘dream team’ of the top trial lawyers in Missouri” and have the opportunity to make a significant impact on the training and development of the Assistant Attorneys General. Luft’s appointment to this program is a testament to her outstanding legal acumen and her dedication to serving the community, as well as recognition of her successful litigation practice.
Luft is the leader of Greensfelder’s Employment & Labor practice group and also serves as the firm’s Assistant General Counsel. She has 30-plus years of experience representing employers and practicing all facets of employment law. Luft was ranked again this year in the Chambers USA 2023 Guide among the top attorneys in the St. Louis region in the Labor & Employment practice area and was recently named to the 2023 BTI Client Service All-Stars List.
