Garrett Broshuis received his J.D. from Saint Louis University, where he graduated valedictorian and served as Editor-in-Chief of the Law Journal. He is licensed in California, Missouri, Illinois, and New York, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court and many other federal courts.

Since joining Korein Tillery, Garrett has performed prominent roles in some of the most complex cases in the country. He is leading a first-of-its-kind case challenging the pay scheme for minor league baseball players, which had its class action status affirmed and expanded by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Senne v. Kansas City Royals Baseball Corp., 934 F.3d 918, 922 (9th Cir. 2019). He represents classes of Missouri municipalities in several actions against Fortune 500 and other large companies, and he also represents a class of retirees challenging the termination of their defined benefit plans by a Fortune 500 company. He has previously represented a putative class of MLB scouts seeking to challenge baseball’s longstanding exemption from antitrust laws and has worked on securities cases emanating from the failure of the mortgage-backed securities market during the financial crisis.

Recently, Garrett successfully represented Indiana cities before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, both arguing and serving as lead briefer in the appeal. City of Fishers, Indiana v. DIRECTV, Case No. 20-3478, ECF No. 54 (7th Cir. July 21, 2021). He was also part of a trial team that recently achieved a nearly $40 million verdict on behalf of Missouri cities.

Garrett’s work is regularly profiled in media outlets across the country, including  HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, MSNBC’s various shows, NPR’s various programs, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications. He is also an adjunct professor at Saint Louis University School of Law and often speaks at conferences and law school symposia.

Before law school, Garrett played six years as a pitcher in the San Francisco Giants’ organization, working at all levels of minor league baseball. For four of those years, he wrote regular columns on life in minor league baseball for The Sporting News and Baseball America. During his last two years, he attained the second most wins of any pitcher in the entire Giants’ minor league system.

Garrett received his undergraduate degree from the University of Missouri, where he graduated summa cum laude and was inducted into the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa honors society. He earned both All-American and Academic All-American honors in baseball after recording a perfect 11-0 record in his final year at Mizzou. He was a finalist for the Big 12 Conference Male Athlete of the Year and also earned the school’s Total Person Program Excellence Award three times.
