Spencer Fane Reelects Managing Partner; Elevates Denver Office Managing Partner

Spencer Fane’s partners voted to reelect Patrick Whalen to a second four-year term as managing partner of the firm. The Spencer Fane partners also elected Denver office managing partner Ron Fano to the firm’s executive committee, which is responsible for determining the strategic direction of the firm.

Most recently, Spencer Fane expanded its presence in Denver through a combination with Berenbaum Weinshienk on Dec. 1, doubling its attorney count in Colorado. The firm also opened three new offices in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Dallas, Texas; and Cape Girardeau, Missouri last year.

“Our decisive expansion efforts have been intentional and strategic as we intend to serve our clients in the same manner they have come to expect,” Whalen said in a press release. “We have been fortunate to have clients continue to call on our firm not only to represent them in new matters but increasingly in new markets, and we’re pleased to respond by shaping our firm to meet their needs.”
