Spencer Fane Welcomes Experienced Litigator to Cape Girardeau Office

April 15, 2022

Spencer Fane LLP is pleased to announce Brian Payne has joined the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice Group as an of counsel attorney in the firm’s Cape Girardeau office.

Payne believes that service to his clients begins with providing advice and information to help avoid unnecessary litigation. When it becomes apparent that litigation is either unavoidable or ultimately in the best interest of his client, the focus shifts to distinguishing those matters requiring a traditional approach from those best served by alternative dispute resolution techniques, tailoring efficient and effective representation to each unique situation. His extensive experience at the appellate level ensures that his clients are afforded a consistent voice until the matter is resolved.

“Brian brings not only a long track record of successful litigation work at both the trial and appellate levels, but also strong ties to southeast Missouri,” said Mike Murphy, Office Managing Partner for Spencer Fane in Cape Girardeau. “Our firm continues to pursue measured growth that benefits our clients, and we have taken this opportunity to strengthen our team with a high-quality attorney who fits well with our culture and commitment to collaborative, efficient legal services.”

Payne completed his undergraduate studies in business administration at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Mississippi School of Law.
