Lathrop Gage LLP
Jack Craft, formerly of Craft Fridkin & Rhyne, merged his firm with Lathrop & Gage in 2004. Most recently Jack worked together with many organizations, including DST, the Internal Revenue Service and the Post Office, to negotiate the development of a new IRS Service Center in the former Main Post Office space in Kansas City, Missouri. To do that, he helped negotiate a process through which the GSA and the IRS were able to achieve Congressional authorization and approval for a long-term lease for the IRS Service Center. It allowed the Postal Service to find better use for an older facility and prompted the IRS to open a new Service Center and relocate employees of the Post Office to Union Station.
He served in the Missouri Attorney General’s Office and as a former assistant U.S. Attorney in the Western District of Missouri.
