St. Louis, Missouri Law Firm

Shands, Elbert, Gianoulakis & Giljum, LLP has been engaged in the practice of law in the St. Louis region for over 50 years.  The Firm has 10 lawyers with significant experience and expertise in litigation of all kinds, employment law, governmental entity law, corporate law and commercial transactions, school law, tax law and estate planning, real estate, and other areas of law and practice.

We are a cohesive and multidimensional team of seasoned lawyers who make it a point to be readily accessible and promptly responsive to our clients.  Our Firm is not so large that we need to have structured departments or a formal hierarchy, the absence of which, we have found, fosters collegial professional relationships that enable us to better serve our clients.  This benefit of “smallness,” coupled with our large firm breadth of practice and high caliber of lawyers, make us unique in the St. Louis legal community. 

Our goal is to provide the highest level of legal services and advice to allow our clients to satisfy their needs and achieve their desired outcomes at a reasonable cost.  By successfully and efficiently handling complex and difficult matters with skill, imagination and professionalism, we have earned an excellent reputation with our clients, including Fortune 500 companies, major public and private corporations in the St. Louis area, public utilities, closely held businesses, public school districts and other governmental entities, private schools and universities, law, engineering, and accounting firms, medical practices, and individuals.


Shands, Elbert, Gianoulakis & Giljum, LLP assists clients with Commercial Litigation, Civil Litigation, Education Law, Business Law, Labor and Employment Law, Estate and Tax Planning, Real Estate Law and Professional Liability Defense in the City of St. Louis, St. Louis and St. Charles Counties and throughout Missouri and Central and Southern Illinois.
