Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli has grown the number of attorneys in its Denver office by more than 20 since the start of its 2018 fiscal year on Nov. 1, 2017.  

The firm’s strategic recruitment of 23 attorneys in Denver, bringing that office’s attorney total to 88 from 65, constitutes a 35 percent increase in headcount in roughly six months. Included in this growth, the firm launched two new national groups based in Denver: a Global Franchise and Supply Network practice and a Food, Beverage and Consumer Goods industry group to expand the firm’s Venture Capital and Emerging Growth Companies practice.

“This intentional, strategic growth is beneficial to our clients in Colorado and across the country,” said Polsinelli’s Denver Office Managing Partner Jennifer Evans, who is a practicing health care attorney. “With the talented, award-winning lawyers who have joined our firm this year, we have new lines of client service and an even deeper bench of expertise in well-established practice areas.”

The additions in Denver included lateral hires in intellectual property, labor and employment, commercial litigation, corporate and transactional and health care law. The attorneys are housed at the new 23-story, 306,000-square-foot building at 1401 Lawrence Street where Polsinelli is the anchor tenant.

“I am drawn to forward-thinking organizations that are shaping the future of the practice of law and helping inspire entrepreneurs and inventors to do their best work,” said John Posthumus, a renowned intellectual property and technology litigation attorney who joined Polsinelli in April from Sheridan Ross PC. “Joining Polsinelli was a natural fit for me because of the firm’s progressive culture and reputation for excellence in intellectual property law.”

Polsinelli has more than 800 attorneys in 20 major offices coast to coast. The firm opened new offices in Silicon Valley, Boston, and Houston in 2016. Other major offices include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, St. Louis, Washington, D.C., and Wilmington.
