Our focus as a law firm is to assist our clients throughout Colorado and beyond in creating solutions for whatever legal and business challenges come their way. Our attorneys practice in a wide variety of substantive practice areas and are experienced at effectively and successfully representing our clients in complex transactions and litigations involving tens of millions of dollars, however we also enjoy handling even the smallest of transactions and disputes. Hockersmith & Whitmore’s substantive practice is broad, but our emphasis is in the following areas:
Real Estate, Water
and other Natural Resources
Our practice has an emphasis on matters related to real estate, water and other natural resources. Our attorneys provide guidance in real estate transactions, development and conservation, as well as representation of clients in need of governmental approvals at all levels of government including municipal, county, state and federal agencies. This work often involves guiding our clients through regulatory and political approval processes as well as challenging the legality of regulations and government actions in court.
Business Formation and Representation
Our attorneys and staff also provide effective and efficient counsel to a wide range of businesses. We have vast experience and understanding in matters related to corporate entity formation, operation, restructuring and dissolution. Our representation of our region’s businesses often involves defense and prosecution of our clients’ interests in contractual and tort arbitrations and litigations.
Litigation and Trials
We maintain a sophisticated trial practice with a proven track record of obtaining results for our clients who find themselves in litigation. Our attorneys have a wide range of trial experience often concerning complex business disputes. We have both prosecuted and defended cases involving breaches of fiduciary duties, contract disputes, business fraud, real estate, insurance, and other high stakes litigation. We have successfully handled cases involving complex science and technology that turn on expert testimony and opinion. We regularly find ourselves in cases where we face opposing counsel from large, multi-state firms and we are fully prepared to bring matters to trial if necessary.
