Serving the Kansas City Metro, Western Missouri, and Kansas

Baty Otto Scheer has called Kansas City home since its founding in 1921. Our Kansas City office on the western edge of Missouri is situated on the historic Country Club Plaza. The firm’s largest office by number of attorneys, our practice in Kansas City encompasses more than a dozen practice areas, including corporate and commercial transactions. Civil litigation is a leading practice within this office. Through changes in name over the years as attorneys retired and others joined, businesses and individuals in the Kansas City metropolitan area have trusted the legal advice and counsel provided by the firm. The firm’s presence in the Kansas City area has endured because of long-standing client relationships that go back to the firm’s start. We have endured also by developing promising legal talent from within and through lateral growth.
