Holland & Hart partner Steve Young, leader of the firm’s Tax and Benefits practice, was quoted in articles by The American Lawyer | Law.com, Bloomberg Law, and Reuters, commenting on the addition of six new attorneys, expanding the firm’s private client and tax teams in Salt Lake City. The latest hires include partners Brent Andrewsen and Thomas Mecham, of counsel Brad Lowe, associates D. Jeffrey Christensen, Adrienne Jack, and John Nash.
In The American Lawyer article, Young said, “Salt Lake is exploding with economic activity, and there’s just a lot going on, so it’s been 10 years we’ve been trying to find this practice, to sort of supplement what we’ve been doing in the Denver market, and it finally came together with this group.” Young mentioned to Bloomberg Law, “the firm had been steadily adding to its tax capacity, and had been searching for a decade to find a private wealth tax group ‘to do similar work and have synergy with the group’s existing tax capacity.’” Additionally, in the Reuters article, Young said, "We are seeing a lot more wealth in the Intermountain West region."
