Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, founded in 1968, practices in the areas of real estate, natural resources, public policy, corporate law and litigation. With 260 attorneys and legislative consultants in offices across the western U.S. and in Washington, D.C., the firm works in industries ranging from real estate, hospitality, private equity and telecommunications, to technology, construction, energy, banking and finance, water and gaming.
Brownstein attorneys are consistently recognized by their peers for their work and the 2015 Chambers USA Guide ranked 30 Brownstein attorneys among the best in their respective fields. We believe that is because of the tools we as a firm give our attorneys to excel and the team we have established to support that work.
Brownstein is recognized for our diversity efforts. We received the 2010 Qwest Diversity Leadership Award presented by the Diversity in the Legal Profession Committee of the Colorado and Denver Bar associations. In August 2010, we were ranked No. 90 on the MultiCultural Law Magazine’s Top 100 Law Firms for Diversity.
Brownstein was ranked No. 13 in The American Lawyer’s first Women in Law Firms study in June 2009 and No. 5 on the list of Top 20 Law Firms for Women Partners by The National Law Journal in November 2009.
Pro bono work and community service are also key components of Brownstein culture. More than 70 percent of the attorneys and policy consultants at Brownstein sit on boards for nonprofit and civic organizations and the firm supports more than 500 nonprofit organizations through various contributions, including monetary and volunteer. We are a 2014 signatory to the Pro Bono Institute’s Law Firm Challenge, averaging 50 hours of pro bono service per attorney. The firm allows associates to count up to 100 pro bono hours toward billable requirements each fiscal year.
