slide 2:

W I N S T O N C A L V E R T S T . L O U I S M O Winston Calvert is a strategic communications consultant who has worked in public office for the city of St. Louis MO. He is also an attorney whose clients range from publicly-traded companies to elected officials individuals and nonprofits. His work is very high profile and in his words “For better or worse almost all of the legal work I have done in the last ten years has involved a dispute or transaction that was covered heavily in the press.”

W I N S T O N C A L V E R T S T . L O U I S M O Calvert formed the law and public relations practice in 2015 after serving a term in public office as St. Louis City Counselor. Mayor Francis Slay in explaining Calvert’s appointment wanted someone who would push the envelope.

W I N S T O N C A L V E R T S T . L O U I S M O “I told Calvert that it was time for our City to lead the region and the state in a bolder more progressive direction” Mayor Slay said during a Law Day speech. “I knew that if the City of St. Louis was not willing to lead the legal reforms necessary to propel our region and our state forward then it was unlikely that anyone else would” he added.

W I N S T O N C A L V E R T S T . L O U I S M O Calvert’s first priorities as City Counselor was to come up with a legal strategy that brought marriage equality to Missouri. It was a historic move that allowed St. Louis City to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. While the state’s constitution termed this a violation of the marriage provision it wasn’t after months of litigation when the courts sided with Calvert leading to Missouri accepting same-sex marriage.

L O U I S M O Other issues that Calvert helped address during his term in public office were an overhaul of the city’s business regulatory laws taxes on small businesses the creation of a Civilian Oversight Board municipal courts reform and the City’s response to the Ferguson protests. He also drafted laws that guided minimum wage discussion.   At the end of his term Winston Calvert was recognized by the Missouri Lawyers Weekly with a Law Firm Leader award.
