Colby Everett is an associate in the Kansas City office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the Labor & Employment and General Liability Practices. He represents clients in employment disputes, general liability issues, insurance litigation, and trade secret litigation in state and federal courts in Kansas and Missouri. 

A fierce advocate for his clients, Colby endeavors to manage his clients’ front-end risk in order to mitigate their back-end exposure. He is not afraid to take on litigation with demands in the six figures or higher, and excels at disposing of high-exposure matters early in litigation.

Colby is a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy, and published on issues in First Amendment and social media policy. He also represented the University at national trial competitions.
