About - Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck

Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is a unique law firm. Walk into any of our offices and you’ll immediately recognize a different type of energy. Complacency doesn’t have a place here. Flexibility and inspiration do. Our culture and enthusiasm allow our attorneys, policy consultants and legal staff to stay ahead of our clients’ needs and provide them with the resources they require to meet their business objectives.

It’s a contagious energy here. We attract the top professionals from around the country because few places provide better opportunities to work at such a high level on such meaningful projects. The attorneys, policy consultants and staff here consistently find themselves ranked among the nation’s best and brightest. In law. In politics. And in business. We pass on those skills—and our contagious energy—to our clients, applying all our multi-disciplinary resources to their success.

You’ll see us involved in some of the biggest cases and most significant deals around the country, as well as the most important legislation affecting business in America. But you’ll also see us deeply committed to the communities in which we practice. We donate both our energy and our financial commitment to much-needed charitable causes, pro bono legal cases, community organizations and industry associations. Bettering our world from the inside out—it’s the very core of who we are.

When the stakes are high and conventional solutions are not enough. When your reputation, business or industry is on the line. Our deep experience, multi-disciplinary approach and political connections deliver results. Because today, successful outcomes require more than just practicing law.

How we give back

Community Relations

At Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, community involvement is part of the culture. We are committed to giving back to the communities where we work and live, through board service, hands-on volunteerism, sponsorships, donations and pro bono legal services.

Even in a billable-hour culture, our employees exemplify the spirit of philanthropy. Last year, the firm supported more than 500 nonprofit organizations. More than 70 percent of the attorneys and policy professionals at Brownstein sit on boards of nonprofit and civic organizations. Firmwide, we provided over 10,000 hours of pro bono legal services to help underserved individuals and organizations. And more than 300 Brownstein team members volunteered at Karma Projects—volunteer projects designed to engage our employees, clients, families and friends in giving back to their communities through hands-on service.

Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck’s strategy to pursuing diversity and inclusiveness begins with a Diversity and Inclusiveness Committee that ensures our efforts in this area are broad and effective.

We believe that the unique backgrounds, life experiences and world views of our attorneys and staff make us a better and more competitive firm in today’s marketplace. We recruit people from varied backgrounds, races, genders, religions, sexual orientations and national origins, both as a matter of business and because we believe in advancing diversity and inclusiveness in the legal community.

Pro Bono

Pro bono legal services and community service are key components of the culture at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck. Our firm was built on a foundation of giving back, and we expect every attorney who joins our firm to support that commitment. 

Our lawyers and staff devoted more than 10,000 hours to pro bono work in 2013 and 2014. We are a signatory to the Pro Bono Institute’s Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge. Our Denver office has pledged to commit an average of 50 pro bono hours per lawyer, per year to the Colorado Supreme Court. In 2013, Brownstein was ranked 101 on the The American Lawyer’s Top 200 pro bono rankings, surpassing many larger firms and our own rank of 168 out of 200 by revenue.
