From The American Lawyer

A little more than a year after Richard Levin joined Bryan Cave in Denver, where he served as a partner and co-chair of the firm’s digital currency team, the corporate lawyer has lateraled to another leadership post at Polsinelli.

Levin, 45, officially started Monday at Polsinelli in the Mile-High City, where he will chair the fast-growing firm’s new financial technology and regulation team.

“I was not looking to leave Bryan Cave; I was very happy with the firm,” said Levin, who will also work out of Washington, D.C. “But the opportunity to build a team in this new area [was one] I couldn’t pass up.”

Levin said that Polsinelli worked with a recruiter in selecting a head for its new fintech and regulation group, though he declined to name the individual. He added that he was “extremely impressed” with Polsinelli’s growth in recent years, particularly in terms of its buildout of a massive health care practice.
