Marcy Glenn Selected to the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers

DENVER (April 10, 2017) – Holland & Hart partner Marcy Glenn has been selected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers (AAAL). Membership in the AAAL is by invitation only, limited to 500 members in the United States, and offered to experienced appellate attorneys who have demonstrated the highest excellence in appellate service and integrity. One of three Colorado members, Glenn was inducted at the AAAL’s 2017 Spring Meeting held April 6-8.

The AAAL was founded in 1990 to recognize outstanding appellate lawyers and promote the improvement of appellate advocacy and the administration of appellate courts. Prospective members must be nominated by a current Fellow, vetted by the legal and judicial communities, and elected to the fellowship by the AAAL Board of Directors.

“Marcy is an extremely well-respected member of the appellate community. She is highly regarded by judges and advocates alike for her exceptional legal analysis, writing skills and oral advocacy,” said Maureen Reidy Witt, the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group Leader.  “Induction into the AAAL is one of the highest honors conferred on an appellate lawyer. AAAL Fellows rank among the ‘Who’s Who’ of appellate practice in their jurisdiction and nationally. On behalf of the firm, I extend our heartfelt congratulations to Marcy.”

Recognized as a leading appellate lawyer in Colorado and the Tenth Circuit, Glenn’s appellate practice covers a broad variety of substantive areas, including constitutional law, natural resources law, employment law, commercial litigation, environmental law, and intellectual property. Glenn has devoted decades of service to the courts and to the bar. She has chaired the Colorado Supreme Court's Standing Committee on the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct since its creation in 2003. She is a former chair and current member of the Colorado Bar Association Ethics Committee, and a former chair of the Committee on Attorney Conduct of the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. Glenn was recently appointed to serve a one-year term on the Colorado Governor’s Board of Ethics.
