Kutak Rock Adds Seven

Combination with Lowe Fell & Skogg adds to business, litigation practices

Kutak Rock’s Denver office grew by seven at the beginning of February.

The firm added to its banking and finance, corporate law, commercial real estate, eminent domain and litigation capabilities with the addition of attorneys from a small corporate boutique in Denver. For the smaller firm, the move to Kutak Rock was an opportunity to bring its clients to a larger firm and to work with other skilled attorneys. And for Kutak Rock, the additions bring an eminent domain practice back to the office that has been missing for more than a decade.

The move was effective Feb. 1. The attorneys joining Kutak Rock came from Lowe Fell & Skogg, a small Colorado firm with a national scope. At Kutak Rock, they collectively add to the business and corporate, mergers and acquisitions and litigation practice groups. The lateral attorneys are of counsels Henry Lowe, David Fell, Kenneth Skogg, associates Heather McKee, Elizabeth Peros and Aren Sharifi and attorney Dana Baggs. In addition to the attorneys, two legal assistants moved to Kutak Rock as well.

The eventual move started in November when Kutak Rock and the LFS attorneys found they aligned with each other in terms of client needs and practices. Lowe said his firm quickly concluded that Kutak Rock would be a good fit for the group of attorneys in the long-term and for their clients.
