Polsinelli’s Denver Office Managing Partner Jennifer Evans was named today an Outstanding Woman in Business by the Denver Business Journal. 

Out of 240 nominations, the Denver Business Journal’s judging panel narrowed the field to 36 for the 2016 Outstanding Women in Business awards. Of those, 13 women were recognized today as women of excellence in business and community.

“Jennifer’s ability to balance legal, legislative and operational know-how is extraordinary,” said Polsinelli Chairman Russ Welsh. “We are proud that Jennifer’s dedication to her community and passion for health care law are being recognized among so many other inspiring women.” 

Finalists were judged on their innovation, entrepreneurship, professional accomplishments and community leadership. The women were honored during the 18th annual awards ceremony today at the Marriott City Center in downtown Denver, where the newly appointed Colorado Lieutenant Governor Donna Lynne served as the keynote speaker. The women will each be featured in the Denver Business Journal’s Outstanding Women in Business special section, scheduled to be released Friday, Aug. 26. 

Evans recently celebrated her one-year anniversary as the first woman to serve as managing partner for Polsinelli’s Denver office. She focuses her health care legal practice on fraud and abuse, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement issues, and regulatory compliance. She also serves as co-chair of the Health Care Committee for the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce and on the board of the Denver Public Schools Foundation. 

Polsinelli’s Denver office is preparing to move to a new space at the end of the year to accommodate its continued growth. Polsinelli has more than 800 attorneys in 19 offices coast to coast, serving corporations, institutions and entrepreneurs nationally. Since 2010, Polsinelli’s overall attorney headcount is up 74 percent and revenue growth is up 145 percent.
