The 2017 Colorado 200 list paints a picture of stability in Colorado’s legal community.
Although our Colorado 200 list is identified as a “top 200” ranking of the firms in Colorado, the list actually becomes more useful for measuring change rather than a straight ranking of size. When set in comparison to last year, as well as several years prior, the list tells us how much the largest firms are changing year over year, how many attorneys are joining overall and how those firms break down in terms of their makeup. While there have certainly been changes from the list we put out this time last year, most firms stayed fairly steady in terms of both their place on the list as well as attorney count.
The Colorado legal market by our count is continuing to see slow and steady growth.
The top 200 firms grew in attorney count by 6.7 percent overall (roughly 300 attorneys) with the average firm growing by 6.1 percent as well.
