The 2020 Colorado 200 survey, like most other annual checks, is a coronavirus study as well as a legal market study. Each year, Law Week Colorado`s reporting team conducts a survey of Colorado`s top 200 private law firms. We are at the forefront of events shaping the region. We work at the interface of law and public policy. As one of the largest law firms in the Rocky Mountain region, we offer our clients access to a strong combination of local, national and global knowledge. Thanks to our extensive industry experience in sports, media and entertainment; life sciences and healthcare; Consumer; energy and natural resources; Technology; and telecommunications, we are able to speak your language and focus on what matters most to your goals. The survey looks at the number of attorneys in a firm, the number of attorneys in Colorado, and other demographic and contact information. The following list reflects only the number of employees. Overall, the number of lawyers in law firms has declined over the past year.
In recent years, we have seen that the total number of lawyers on the panel has slowly increased. This year`s list saw a decrease of 55 lawyers. The overall reduction in the number is not too much of a sneak in itself, but given that the average office has only 23 lawyers, the reduction equates to two law firms worth lawyers. If many large law firms do not disappear from the list, which would alter the representation of even smaller firms, we interpret this as a general decline in law firms. This list does not indicate how many jobs were lost last year. This year`s list is a clearer but strengthened overview of diversity in the ranks of partners. We`ve received more and more information from law firms this year about diversity in partnerships, but the numbers are consistent with our previous information – 33% of partners are women and 8% are lawyers of color. Colorado beats the national average for women in partner positions, but lags behind in minority representation. The list of Colorado`s largest law firms is below, ranked by the number of local attorneys. Have we missed a business?
