Reeser is the 31st attorney to join the firm’s Denver office over the past 15 months 

Jeffrey K. Reeser has joined Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli as a shareholder in the firm’s rapidly growing Denver office.

Reeser brings significant depth and breadth of experience to the Corporate and Transactional practice, with specific experience in natural resources and energy technology. He previously served as vice president of law at Fortune 500 company Newmont Mining, and general counsel of multiple international mining, oil and gas companies, including Sunshine Silver Mining & Refining Corporation. 

Reeser has advised global companies on legal and compliance matters including Canadian and U.S. corporate and securities matters, mining law, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, international commercial contracting, litigation, environmental and regulatory compliance, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anticorruption compliance, and real and intellectual property matters.

Polsinelli’s national corporate and transactional practice provides a range of legal services from selecting the appropriate choice of entity through exit strategies and everything in between during the life cycle of a business. Working in collaboration with attorneys from the firm's tax and other related practice areas allows the firm to provide clients with comprehensive legal advice designed to minimize liability, maintain flexibility, and advance clients’ objectives.

“My experience working as both corporate general counsel and outside counsel has given me insights into what it takes to create trusted partnerships,” Reeser said. “The environment at Polsinelli is high energy, forward looking and ripe with opportunity to continue offering value to clients.”

Joining the firm from Snell & Wilmer, Reeser earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Colorado School of Law and his undergraduate degree in business finance from the University of Colorado.

“As Denver continues to see significant innovation and growth, Polsinelli is committed to aligning our talent to meet the needs of entrepreneurs and clients ,” said Polsinelli Shareholder and Denver Office Managing Partner Jennifer Evans. “With his global experience and specialization in energy, Jeff’s skills are a particular asset to the firm and the practice.”

Reeser’s hire is evidence of Polsinelli’s ongoing efforts to successfully recruit talent  to deepen its bench of practicing attorneys and practice areas.
