About the Firm

We strive to lead our profession by giving the highest level of service and loyalty to our clients and by forging a team—lawyers, paralegals, staff, and other professionals—whose work is infused with our values.

Joe Holland and Steve Hart were highly trained lawyers who just so happened to also be Rocky Mountain climbers. In 1947 they came together to build a firm. Their philosophy was simple: keep going up, and if you get stuck, there is always another route to the top. This is where the spirit of the firm’s pioneering and innovation began.


We honor the highest ethical standards, and we treat our clients, opposing parties, and each other fairly and honestly.

We demonstrate passionate commitment to excellence in all that we do.

We find and implement original, inventive, practical solutions to our clients' needs and challenges.

We use teamwork to maximize our strengths, to enhance our service to clients, and to enjoy together our work and accomplishments.

We give unfailing support and encouragement to every person, office, and practice group in our firm; we embrace wholeheartedly the spirit of respect, cooperation, communication, friendship, and good humor on which our firm is built.

We recognize the strength of talent and breadth of perspective that come from a diverse work force, and we are committed to maintaining and enhancing our multifaceted team.

We acknowledge a special obligation to our communities, and we actively seek and undertake opportunities for giving our skills, time, and talents to pro bono and public service activities.

We have many professional and personal interests, and we seek a sound balance among them.
