Denver (PRWEB) February 17, 2012
The litigation boutique Reilly Pozner has been selected to The National Law Journals inaugural Litigation Boutiques Hot List, an exclusive group of 10 firms in the country that take second place to no one in courtroom skill.
Reilly Pozner is one of those firms important clients turn to for state-of-the-art advocacy in bet-the-company cases, the Journal reported. They also represent an avenue to practice high-end law on a more human scale than perhaps is offered by larger firms.
With just under 30 lawyers, Reilly Pozner has roughly tripled in size since it was established it in 2000. Many of its lawyers are younger than 40 years old. All of its lawyers, except former state appellate court judge and partner Sean Connelly, are based in Denver. Connelly heads the firm’s Washington office which opened last year. While an assistant United States attorney, Connelly was the lead appellate lawyer in the Oklahoma City bombing prosecutions. In all, the firm has served as lead counsel in more than 40 states.
In an interview with the Journal, co-founding partner Dan Reilly discussed prominent cases in which the firm has recently been involved, one of which many believe will wind up before the Colorado Supreme Court. He also talked about the firms mantra which devolves from the firms unique logo, a gargoyle. The mantra flowing from the medieval guardian is Protect and Prevail. However, co-founding partner Reilly points out the firms bold choice for branding itself hardly reflects a traditional approach to practice.
