A litigator with experience clerking for three different judges, Eliot assists clients with all phases of litigation in state and federal courts.
He drafts dispositive briefs in support of motions at all phases of litigation, from pre-litigation fact-gathering through trial and appeals. Eliot also conducts legal research, assists with discovery, and communicates with clients to make sure their litigation goals are met. He also defends tenants in Missouri state courts with the firm's extensive pro bono practice. While in law school at the University of Michigan, Eliot participated in three ligation-based clinics — the Veterans Legal Clinic, the Child Advocacy Law Clinic, and the Unemployment Insurance Clinic — where he chaired trials in Michigan state courts.
Eliot has much experience in matters related to the food and agriculture industries. Before law school, he was an analyst at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service where he conducted research and drafted standard operating procedures for meat inspectors related to federal regulations. During law school, Eliot spent a summer at a boutique firm in Washington, D.C. that works on regulatory matters related to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Eliot continues to work on various cases related to food and agriculture at Thompson Coburn.
