Waltz counsels clients in a broad range of corporate, transactional and disclosure related issues. His experience includes working with clients at various stages of their life cycle from up-start to mid-size companies, as well as small public businesses.


“Helping businesses develop from an idea into a mature company is deeply rewarding,” said Waltz. “Polsinelli Shughart has a national reputation in corporate work and the firm’s vast resources will assist me as I strive to help clients excel to the next level. I’m excited to be here.”


The Corporate Law group consists of attorneys in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Phoenix and St. Louis. The firm has been ranked as one of the fastest growing law firms in the country. The Denver office is deeply committed to the vitality, economic development and sustainability of the metro Denver business community.


“The continued growth of our Denver office enhances our platform in the Rocky Mountain region and nationwide to deliver sophisticated, value-added legal counsel to clients,” said Eugene R.

Waltz earned his J.D. from the University of Denver Strum College of law, Order of St. Ives, in2004. He also earned a B.A. in Political Science from Colorado State University in 1999.


When he's not practicing law, Waltz stays active. He enjoys running marathons and mountain climbing. In 2001, he accomplished an adventure most people can only dream about when he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro.


“When we reached the top, I stayed there for awhile to take it all in,” recalls Waltz. “It was a wonderful experience.”
