Polsinelli's Denver Office Named New Home for the Colorado Lawyers Committee

Non-profit organization now occupies space at 1401 Lawrence in downtown Denver

The Denver office of Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli is the new home for the Colorado Lawyers Committee, a non-profit consortium of lawyers and law firms providing important pro bono and related legal services throughout Colorado.

The Colorado Lawyers Committee and its three team members occupy 772 square feet on the 22nd floor of the Polsinelli Denver office located at 1401 Lawrence. Polsinelli has anchored the 22-story building since construction was completed in 2016.

“Polsinelli and the Colorado Lawyers Committee share a common interest in giving back to the community through pro bono legal services,” said Gerry Niederman, a Polsinelli shareholder and health care attorney. “Having such close access to this organization will give our attorneys the opportunity to get more involved in pro bono matters that benefit the community we live and work in.”

Niederman currently serves on the Colorado Lawyers Committee Board of Directors, and Polsinelli associate Ryan Thurber serves on the Colorado Lawyers Committee Young Lawyers Division Board. Together, Polsinelli lawyers have worked on issues through the Colorado Lawyers Committee ranging from civil rights, immigration and homelessness to mental health and education.

“The Colorado Lawyers Committee is delighted to be in our new home in Polsinelli’s Denver office,” said Connie Talmage, executive director of the Colorado Lawyers Committee. “The new space is beautiful, and the views are truly unmatched anywhere else in the downtown area. We’re looking forward to continuing our work with the attorneys at Polsinelli and other Colorado firms, and we’re grateful for the generosity and hospitality of Polsinelli.”

Founded in 1978, the Colorado Lawyers Committee is a nonpartisan consortium of 75 Colorado law firms dedicated to creating and increasing opportunities for children, the poor and other disadvantaged communities through advocacy, negotiation and litigation. The lawyers who donate their time through the Colorado Lawyers Committee focus primarily on major public policy issues and systemic changes rather than representation of individuals. This past year, 750 volunteers donated more than 7,000 hours to Colorado Lawyers Committee projects. The Colorado Lawyers Committee is affiliated with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in Washington D.C. and similar organizations in seven other cities throughout the country.
