Law Week Colorado has named Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck’s John McDermott as one of its 2017 Top Litigator honorees. This award recognizes the leading trial attorneys in the state who had the biggest wins, and saves, in the courtroom last year.
“What I admire most about John as a litigator is how he assembles a top-rate team and then listens to and absorbs what they say in a collegial, friendly pre-trial atmosphere that is both very productive and enjoyable,” said Larry Treece, a Brownstein shareholder and veteran trial lawyer. “What is perhaps the defining characteristic of John’s excellence in the courtroom is his overriding sense of what is happening and his quiet, but commanding, courtroom confidence, presence and control.”
John, a shareholder in the Denver office who also serves on the firm’s Executive Committee, has handled trials for clients in many industries, including the securities, health care, software and public pension areas, among others.
He shares this recognition with Larry Treece, David Meschke and Aaron Hughes, Brownstein attorneys with whom John tried a significant securities trial in 2016.
