Business and politics converge at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, a law and lobbying firm with 12 offices across the Western U.S., plus Washington, D.C. and Atlantic City. Founded in 1968, Brownstein provides clients with an integrated approach that combines sensible business solutions with 20 years of Capitol Hill perspective. The firm’s 250 lawyers and policy professionals have built a reputation for providing multidisciplinary legal counsel that drives results and connects business leaders to the information they need to make decisions. The firm also gives big: Over the last 25 years, it has contributed more than $22.5 million to nonprofits throughout Colorado and the U.S. About 70% of its attorneys and policy professionals serve on nonprofit boards. Karma Committees in each office help plan and lead “done-in-a-day” volunteer projects and drive to support local nonprofits and those in need. Last year, Brownstein had more than 400 volunteers provide nearly 1,200 hours of volunteer service through its Karma Projects, which included collecting food and school supplies, making and delivering valentines to kids in the hospital and adopting families for the holidays.
