by Tony Flesor

Snell & Wilmer announced today that Chantell Taylor has joined the Denver office as a partner in its government relations, regulatory and administrative law practice. Her arrival continues the firm’s expansion of its focus on the political and election law.

Taylor will advise and advocate for clients across industries including nonprofit organizations on governmental matters ranging from constitutional disputes to campaign finance compliance, affordable housing and transportation issues to cannabis legalization.  Taylor will also manage regulatory issues arising from traditional and renewable energy development across the state.

“Chantell offers tremendous value to our clients in Colorado and nationwide, strengthening our existing capabilities and allowing us to continue to deliver high-quality results for our clients,” said Curt Reimann, managing partner of Snell & Wilmer’s Denver office. “Her impressive experience in political, regulatory and government law makes Chantell an excellent addition to Snell & Wilmer.”

Taylor joins Snell & Wilmer with more than 15 years of experience in government and regulatory affairs, political and legislative matters. Most recently, she was Colorado and Utah government relations manager for Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, a U.S.-based petroleum and natural gas exploration and production company. Prior to Anadarko, Taylor served as senior counsel at Hogan Lovells where her practice largely focused in government relations on behalf of Colorado’s energy industry, including serving as general counsel for Coloradans for Responsible Energy Development and representing major industry operations and trade associations.

“I am thrilled to join Snell & Wilmer and its growing government relations, regulatory and administrative law group,” said Taylor. “I look forward to building a unique practice that combines my experience in political consulting, government affairs and advocacy to advance the Denver office.”

Taylor received her law degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. She is the founding president of Women’s Energy Network Colorado, a nonprofit organization that educates, attracts, retains and develops professional women working throughout the energy industry.
