Mark F. Leonard Award

At Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, our relationships with our colleagues, clients and community are our biggest differentiator. We deliver on those relationships through our core values—All In, Excellence, Respect and Giving Back—and they in turn guide our decisions and actions each day. In 2016, we introduced the Mark F. Leonard Award to annually recognize one employee who embodies these core values and inspires this behavior in others.
