Polsinelli Sees Rapid Growth Over First Quarter

The firm has added high-profile attorneys and new practice groups

It’s a familiar story in Denver. Polsinelli is seeing major growth in the metro area. The firm brought in a large number of laterals in 2015 and 2016, which helped the firm fill out a new office in a marquee space in one of Denver’s new skyscrapers in 2017. Through the end of last year until the present, the firm has again brought in several laterals with top practices. To top it off, the firm also touted growth across all financials nationwide in the 2018 Am Law 100 listing.

Since November 2017, the firm has brought in about 20 attorneys, including three venture capital partners, two attorneys with a nationally renowned global franchise and supply network practice and an intellectual property attorney known around town for being instrumental in bringing a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office satellite to Denver.

That growth is part of a nationwide trend for the firm. According to a recent ALM article, Polsinelli posted growth in gross revenue, revenue per partner and profits per partner in 2017.

Denver office managing partner Jennifer Evans said the firm, and the local office, grow according to client needs, with expansion in new areas coming as clients request it. And in some cases, growth begets growth.
