5280 Magazine recognizes top lawyers

DENVER – Seven attorneys from Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP were recognized in the second annual top lawyers list recently released by 5280 Magazine, a local lifestyle publication covering the Mile High City.

Fred Baumann (commercial litigation), Justin Cumming (agriculture law), William P. Johnson (banking law), Greg Kanan (antitrust law), Jim Lyons (civil litigation), Trey Rogers (government relations) and Jim Walker (tax/corporate law) were included as top Denver-area lawyers for 2016.

According to 5280, rankings were compiled through an online survey in which all licensed attorneys in the seven-county metro area could participate, or via responses to postcards mailed to nearly 16,000 licensed attorneys.

Editors then conducted dozens of interviews, resulting in the 2016 Top Lawyers list of approximately 400 top lawyers representing 49 practice areas.
