Mike Pospisil is a highly regarded attorney specializing in commercial litigation - especially complex matters, as well as class action litigation. He is not only a seasoned trial attorney, representing clients across the country in both state and federal courts, but also has expertise in arbitration proceedings.

Before joining the Edgar Law Firm, Mike represented Fortune 500 plaintiff and defense clients at Bryan Cave. Mike has substantial experience in consumer class action litigation and complex litigation through his work defending H&R Block in courts throughout the country.

Most recently Mike served on the Edgar Law Firm team that successfully represented the redevelopers of Kansas City’s President Hotel in a six week jury trial against a Cleveland-based law firm, Squire Sanders & Dempsey LLP. Edgar Law Firm negotiated a $43 million settlement for their client.
