LAW WEEK COLORADO
Gregory Densen has been named Chief Executive of Sherman & Howard, the firm announced Monday.
Densen succeeds Michael Sanchez, who has managed the firm since 1991. Sanchez will continue to serve as a member of the firm’s executive committee. Densen makes the transition to CEO at a time of considerable expansion for the firm. Last year, Sherman & Howard grew by 16 percent by adding 20 new lawyers. The firm now has more than 190 attorneys in 11 markets nationwide.
“It is an honor to be chosen to lead this talented group of attorneys and staff who are instrumental to the continued success of the firm,” Densen said. “The way our firm is managed gives our lawyers the opportunity to serve clients in a unique and special way that sets us apart from our competitors. We all owe Mike a debt of gratitude for that and for his leadership during the last 25 years.”
At 43 years old, Densen is one of the youngest law firm managing partners in the country. He joined Sherman & Howard in 1998 following his graduation from the University of Iowa College of Law. In 2013, he was elected as a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, one of only 58 Colorado attorneys who received this honor.
Sherman & Howard, established in 1892, will celebrate the firm’s 125 year anniversary in 2017.
