Lewis Roca Rothgerber to Change Service Model for Wyoming Clients
PHOENIX – August 13, 2015 – Lewis Roca Rothgerber announced today that the firm will be closing its office located in Casper, Wyoming. The move comes on the heels of the recent announcement by firm Partner, Governor Michael Sullivan, who will be retiring after fourteen years with the firm.
“Governor Sullivan’s departure, coupled with a desire to keep down our clients’ costs, led to the decision to close the office,” said Managing Partner, Ken Van Winkle. “We have asked Partner Tom Dougherty to lead a team of attorneys with considerable experience in litigation, oil, energy, renewables and other industries to continue to serve our Wyoming clients, primarily through our Denver office.”
“Over the years we have built a strong relationship with the business community in Wyoming,” stated Dougherty. “For more than 35 years we have served clients located throughout the state and representing virtually every sector of Wyoming’s economy. We are confident we can continue to provide quality legal services to our Wyoming clients for years to come. We are very thankful to Governor Sullivan and the other attorneys in our Casper office -- John Masterson and Alaina Stedillie, and to our many clients in Wyoming, and look forward to continuing to serve the needs of our clients and the Wyoming business community.”
