Spencer Fane Increases Attorney Presence in Denver



Kansas City’s Spencer Fane LLP announced today that it is bringing 30 attorneys on board by welcoming Denver’s 70-year-old Berenbaum Weinshienk law firm as part of the extended Spencer Fane team. The combination more than doubles the Spencer Fane attorney count in Denver and increases the firm’s total attorneys to more than 190.

Pat Whalen, Spencer Fane chair, said “We are honored that Berenbaum Weinshienk attorneys have agreed to join us at Spencer Fane, and we are eager for clients of both firms to immediately begin to realize the benefits of our expanded services and depth of experience.”

Speaking for Berenbaum Weinshienk, firm president Steve Hoth said, “For more than 70 years, Berenbaum has developed deep client relationships and trust throughout the Colorado community, due largely to a highly attentive approach that allows our clients direct access to partners and firm leadership. This is an approach we saw immediately in our colleagues at Spencer Fane and is a shared interest that has us very excited to begin working together.”

The addition of Berenbaum Weinshienk’s attorneys is expected to bolster Spencer Fane offerings in numerous areas including real estate and development, healthcare, employee benefits, corporate law, tax law, banking and financial services, special districts, environmental law, estate planning, government affairs, intellectual property, and labor & employment.
