Tueth Keeney is pleased to announce that James R. ("Jim") Layton, former Solicitor General of Missouri, has joined the Firm as Of Counsel. Jim was Missouri’s Solicitor General for Attorney General Chris Koster’s terms. Jim served under Attorney General Jay Nixon for more than 14 years.

While in the Missouri Attorney General’s Office, Jim argued three cases in the United States Supreme Court, 92 in the Missouri Supreme Court, and 100 in other state and federal appellate courts on behalf of the State. He worked extensively on matters involving constitutional, administrative and election law; state education law; and state taxation.
