The firm has a particularly well-regarded construction team which has wide-ranging experience handling construction projects.

Regarded as "one of the best real estate attorneys in Colorado," Rebecca Dow has impressed this year, not only with her technical expertise but with her practical approach to "getting deals done rather than figuring why deals can't be done."
