When it comes to the procedural world of intellectual property law, Cindy Pham is something of a wunderkind.

“I kind of stumbled into it, and just have this weird affinity for the practice,” Pham said. “It just clicked. I pretty naturally memorized the rules, and it’s very procedural, and I’m very good at that. I really can’t explain it.”

The young litigator is in her second year of practice — the youngest of Law Week’s up-and-comers this year — and her first in the newly minted Denver office of national firm Holland & Knight. While her primary focus is patents and trademarks, she also practices general commercial litigation “and some random things like mechanic liens,” she said.

Since she graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 2013, she “has established herself as an outstanding intellectual property lawyer with a wealth of experience and success that is unparalleled at her level,” executive partner Aaron Bradford said, citing Pham’s “intense attention to detail, uncanny research instincts and intellectual rigor” in tackling complex patent cases for companies small and large.
