Finding solutions
that elude others

Because we’re experienced, we get to solutions faster and are in effect much larger than our core team.


If your case requires more resources and document discovery, we have relationships with other lawyers and paralegals. By structuring in this manner, our clients don’t have to pay for extra staff unless we need to hire them for their case.

Steven A. Klenda

Steve has handled a variety of cases including loan/real estate workouts and restructurings, title issues, contract/business disputes, contested trusts and estates, regulatory compliance and campaign finance/1st Amendment issues. On appeal, he has reversed an arbitration award as violating public policy; reversed a Colorado Division of Gaming licensing decision for violating due process; reversed confirmation of a chapter 11 plan because no evidence supported its feasibility; and obtained a unanimous Colorado Supreme Court opinion that rejected an effort to apply campaign finance regulations to political speech.

He received his BA with honors from Johns Hopkins University, MA from the University of Chicago, and JD from Northwestern University.

Scott Gessler

A recognized expert in election and public policy law, Scott has litigated cases and advised clients in the areas of campaign finance, ballot access, ballot issues, election administration, Voting Rights Act, Colorado Open Records Act, First Amendment civil rights, redistricting, and tax exempt law. He advises and represents small companies and non-profits, particularly those requiring help with the full spectrum of government regulation and relations. He also advises and represents new ventures, including emerging companies and nonprofits.

Scott served as Colorado’s Secretary of State from 2011 to 2015. During that time he reformed office management and processes, overhauled Colorado’s election rules, launched election and business policies that serve as national models, and oversaw elections—one of the most high-profile and contentious areas of public policy.

He received his B.A. at Yale University, J.D. at University of Michigan, and M.B.A. at Northwestern University. He serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Denver Law School.
