About Us

Evans & Dixon is a full-service, regional law firm with seven offices located across the Midwest. We deliver comprehensive legal counsel in the key areas that affect today’s businesses: corporate, environmental, healthcare, intellectual property, and labor and employment law. Our litigation and dispute resolution team has a strong record of success representing clients before federal and state trial and appellate courts, and in arbitration and administrative proceedings. And our renowned workers compensation group — where we first made our name as a legal provider of choice — continues to provide top-quality, cost-effective counsel to employers and insurers.

Our clients are as diverse as our firm and come to us from virtually every sector of the Midwestern and national economies. In Missouri alone, we represent 80% of the top Fortune 500 companies in the state. While the breadth of our client base is a recognized strength, we have also developed industry-specific teams in construction, real estate, healthcare, insurance and manufacturing, enabling us to provide focused solutions that anticipate and address the unique challenges and goals of clients in these areas.


Our mission is simple: to help clients achieve business success. Our services may vary — from negotiating key employment and vendor contracts on behalf of a startup company, to helping an established, regional hospital system build a new medical facility or resolve a dispute with regulators — but they are always delivered by skilled legal advisors, through cohesive collaboration.

Our core values are equally straightforward:

  •  Quality service
  •  Sophisticated counsel
  •  Professionalism
  •  Partnering with clients, teamwork within the firm
  •  Ongoing professional development

We pride ourselves on our adherence to these core values, but we are never satisfied. We can always do better, and we never stop seeking ways to help our clients succeed.

Our History

John Evans and John Dixon founded the firm in 1945 with a commitment to delivering the highest levels of service, value and legal counsel. For 75 years, we have remained dedicated to these goals. We are proud of our distinguished history, but we are not bound by it. To better serve our clients, we keep a clear eye on emerging legal and business trends, take advantage of new technologies, tools and methodologies, and continuously develop our service offerings to help clients stay ahead of economic, regulatory and legislative developments.

Evans & Dixon made its name on the strength of our workers compensation and civil litigation defense. In 2008, we expanded to include subrogation and collections teams. With the addition of our business law practice group in 2010, which includes some of the nation’s most experienced lawyers, we provide end-to-end services in business transactions, labor and employment law, business and commercial litigation, environmental law, small business development and entrepreneurship, real estate, employee benefits, and intellectual property. We have also expanded our large-loss subrogation practice and creditor’s rights practices. In 2015, the firm added a healthcare practice group to address one of the largest sectors of our economy. Covering a broad range of industries, the healthcare practice group solidified Evans & Dixon as a full-service firm.

Together, our lawyers can help clients meet virtually all of their business needs. As a member of the International Alliance of Law Firms, we can help businesses obtain quality legal counsel across the country and around the globe — wherever their business takes them.
