To our valued clients and colleagues:

We are delighted to announce the combination of Holme Roberts & Owen LLP into Bryan Cave LLP, effective January 1, 2012.

Founded in 1898, Holme Roberts & Owen has approximately 150 lawyers in offices in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco. For more than 100 years, the firm has had a tradition of developing lasting relationships with the entrepreneurial businesses which built the Rocky Mountain West, including numerous energy, mining, natural resource and telecommunications and technology clients. In more recent times, the firm has been a leader in providing counsel for complex business and securities transactions, emerging tech and environmental matters. We are pleased to have as our colleagues lawyers coming from a firm with the stature of Holme Roberts & Owen, a name that has been synonymous with the highest quality legal work in its region for more than a century.

We are very excited about the opportunities this move creates for our entire firm. The combination will add exceptional legal capabilities in energy, natural resources, and sports law to Bryan Cave's international resources while expanding the firm's worldwide presence into the Rocky Mountain region and adding significant new depth and experience in California.

The strength of Bryan Cave is our commitment to clients, and to treating our colleagues as we do our best clients. As we work with our new colleagues in that same spirit, this combination will indeed help us continue to better serve our clients while enhancing our opportunities for personal and professional satisfaction.

Any questions concerning our combined services can be directed to our relationship partners, or to the appropriate Client Service Group leader or Office Managing Partner.
