Bryan Cave announced Oct. 5 that partner Paul Lopach will serve as deputy office managing partner in the Denver office. He will succeed partner Randy Miller, effective Jan. 1.

Lopach focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, product liability and negligence cases and natural resource litigation. He has tried numerous high-stakes jury and bench trials before state, federal and arbitration tribunals. Lopach was previously a member of the executive committee at predecessor firm Holme Roberts & Owen.

Miller previously served as firmwide managing partner of HRO. After the combination with Bryan Cave in 2012, he served as a member of the management committee from 2012 to 2013 in addition to his Denver office managing partner duties. Miller’s legal practice involves business litigation and resolving complex problems. After the transition, Miller will focus on driving the firm’s core strategic practices, which include food and agribusiness, real estate and banking.

“This is an exciting time of growth and opportunity for Denver,” Miller said. “Paul’s leadership skills and practical insights are a perfect fit for the firm and this community.”

The Denver office of Bryan Cave was established in 1898 and is among the firm’s largest as a result of the combination with HRO. The Denver office has nearly 100 attorneys practicing in areas including natural resources, litigation, corporate and commercial law, real estate, employment and labor and intellectual property.
