I am a partner in Dentons US LLP’s Denver Litigation Team. McKenna Long & Aldridge merged with Dentons on July 1, 2015. With more than thirty years of experience in the courtroom, I assist clients with complex business cases, particularly those involving trade secrets, employment issues, creditor’s rights, and real estate disputes. For example, I defended one of the largest age discrimination collective actions ever litigated in the District of Colorado and represented the defendants in a complex trade secrets case that was the subject of two federal court trials. I litigate cases in the Colorado state and federal courts, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, and U.S. Court of Appeals.
In 1989, I became a member of the United States Supreme Court Bar. I am also licensed to practice in New York and D.C.. In addition to litigating cases, I play a lead role in mediations and arbitrations. My interest in technology is reflected in my membership in the firm’s cross-practice Cybersecurity Industry Team and my extensive work with electronic discovery. I have written and spoken on issues relating to electronic discovery since 2002. I am also the co-author of a series of articles on malpractice practice that appears in The Colorado Lawyer magazine. My clients want an experienced, creative attorney who shares their goals in resolving disputes. I know that certain cases warrant a trial, while, in other matters, a settlement is in the client's best interest. I welcome the opportunity to discuss alternative fee arrangements with clients.
I am active in the legal and business communities in Denver. Among other activities, I am a member of the Board of Governors of the Colorado Bar Association, the Board of the Colorado Judicial Institute, the E-Discovery Committee of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, the Public Affairs Council of the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, and the Board of Governors of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation.
