Each year, Law Week Colorado publishes a rundown of the largest law firms in Colorado, according to attorney headcount, and we need your help in collecting that information. The Colorado 200 not only gives us a clear look at what firms are the biggest, but it also tells us which firms are growing as well as which firms might be doing more with less. It also gives us a look at the diversity of Colorado’s legal community. Take the survey here.
