Jennifer Gille Bacon enjoys securing successful results for clients. With her strong track record, she has built a substantial practice in commercial litigation and antitrust law. Jennifer served on trial teams that obtained the largest business trial verdicts ever upheld in Missouri, $35 million and $70 million, as well as the largest settlement, $400 million.
Her client representation includes business clients in most industries, including health care, energy, automotive, financial services, trucking, and insurance. Jennifer also consults with clients to avoid pitfalls in their businesses so as to prevent or minimize regulatory or litigation risks. She recognizes that representing businesses is much more than defending them when they are sued. Businesses must on occasion prosecute claims for their owners or shareholders.
Jennifer’s clients have benefited from her experience in trying business tort and antitrust matters, with verdicts in the tens of millions of dollars, upheld on appeal. She also negotiated a $400 million settlement on behalf of her client, the State of Missouri, and others in a major antitrust case involving the natural gas industry. She is similarly dedicated to assisting her clients, often in the antitrust area, to understand and avoid litigation and regulatory risks that can accompany success and growth in her client's business.
