Holland & Hart is pleased to announce that Liz Sharrer was recognized by the Colorado Women’s Bar Association Foundation (CWBAF) as a 2022 Raising the Bar honoree. Each year, the CWBAF honors women lawyers who have made a difference in our communities and have “raised the bar” for others. The CWBAF 16th Annual Raising the Bar Celebration theme was “Women Who ‘Manage’ to Raise The Bar: Honoring Managing Partners.”
Liz is senior counsel at Holland & Hart and immediate past Firm Chair (2014-2019). As chair, she prioritized a renewed focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and technology; and oversaw a multi-year strategic planning process that resulted in partnership governance changes.
Liz has spent her entire career at Holland & Hart and held numerous leadership roles in addition to Firm Chair, including serving as the first Denver Administrative Partner, as a Real Estate Practice Group Leader, and on the Management Committee. Committed to improving the experience of working women, Liz had a significant role in the adoption of a reduced hours policy in the 1980’s. She has also invested time to mentor many women lawyers, helping them navigate the demands of practice and family.
Her leadership and service are exemplified by her active involvement in many community organizations, including serving on the Board of Trustees of the Colorado Legal Aid Foundation, as Past President of the Board of Trustees for the U.S. Green Building Council–Colorado Chapter, and as Past President of the Board of Trustees for the Stanley British Primary School in Denver.
