During business hours, I help businesspeople in companies of all sizes, in many industries, do deals, manage risk, solve problems, and pursue operational improvements.  Much of my career was spent on the client side working within iconic global companies like Diageo, Anheuser-Busch, Sara Lee and Monsanto. Obsessive about results, innovation, and efficiency, I often work with clients on a fixed-fee basis. 


After business hours, I enjoy cycling, hiking, reading and going to concerts.

David Groce: Excellent, Trustworthy Business Attorney!
I recently launched a new business venture and needed to consult with a knowledgeable attorney in St. Louis. Mr. David Groce came very highly recommended to me by a friend so naturally I gave him a call. I realize that this may sound cliche, but after consulting with David I can honestly say that he has exceeded my expectations of the value of a good business attorney. Not only does David have the technical legal knowledge and experience to give me the answers I need, but he does so quickly and he makes it impossible not to understand. He's also trustworthy, which is probably more important than anything to me. I would recommend David to anyone in business who is looking for an attorney.

Highly respected. Great Resource. Personable
David and I worked together many months on several challenging issues. I found David to be a very experienced professional who was able to provide excellent guidance to our senior leadership team and the Board of Directors. He is a very personable individual as well and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

David Groce Review
I recommend David for any business related legal services you may need. His attention to detail and general level of service on a matter he assisted me with made him stand apart from others in the legal profession.

Great Support
We are a Company from outside of the United States and David is great support to manage the various required incorporation and initial set up processes of our US subsidiaries as well as being a reliable support for us in their annual legal statutory requirements.

Excellent advice as well as superb legal counsel
I couldn't have asked for a better person to navigate me through a complex business matter than David Groce. He was part counselor, part friend and kept me focused on the stated goal - constantly reminding me to leave emotion at the door which reduced my hit-button response mechanisms. I would absolutely recommend David to persons needing legal representation for all business matters.
