Garrett Broshuis is a nationally-recognized attorney who has performed prominent roles in some of the most complex cases in the country. He was the lead attorney in a landmark case challenging the pay scheme for minor league baseball players, which settled for $185 million in what is believed to be the largest settlement for minimum wage violations in history.  Garrett led the case through a successful appeal, Senne v. Kansas City Royals Baseball Corp., 934 F.3d 918, 922 (9th Cir. 2019), and through summary judgment proceedings.

 

He was also part of a trial team that won a $40 million judgment in a class action against a major telecommunications company, which was affirmed on appeal. He represents classes of municipalities in several actions against Fortune 500 and other large companies, and has successfully represented cities in various appeals, including successful arguments before the Seventh Circuit and Eighth Circuit Courts of Appeals.

 

Garrett also represents a class of retirees challenging the termination of their defined benefit plans by a Fortune 500 company, and represents a putative class of college coaches in an antitrust case. 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.

Garrett's work was recently recognized by the national labor group Jobs with Justice for its Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award. The Daily Journal named him a Leading Commercial Litigator, and the National Law Journal named him to its Plaintiffs' Lawyers Trailblazers List in 2023. His 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. He 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 United States Supreme Court and many other federal courts.

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.
