Face of Law : Rich Benenson, Managing Partner Elect

Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP

410 Seventeenth Street, Suite 2200 

Denver, CO 80202  303.223.1100

Rich Benenson is managing partner-elect for Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, law and lobbying firm. With 12 offices across the Western U.S., plus Washington, D.C. and Atlantic City, Brownstein is where business, law and politics converge.

Founded in 1968, Brownstein provides its clients a value that no other Western law firm can match — 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.

A senior litigator, Rich Benenson’s experience includes headline and groundbreaking cases. He’s known for his enviable track record defending companies in complex litigation, antitrust, consumer protection, business torts, class actions and securities matters. He also regularly defends officers and directors in shareholder/investor claims of wrongful conduct and breach of fiduciary duty. He also helps clients avoid litigation by advising them on consumer protection and audit topics and strategies. 

A problem solver on a large scale, Benenson recently led the Brownstein team that facilitated a historic settlement with the Colorado Attorney General’s office and the state’s largest foreclosure firm resolving the state’s two-year long consumer protection and antitrust investigation of foreclosure fees and costs. Likely the largest settlement of its kind, the case has significant implications for how foreclosures are handled in Colorado and nationwide.

Benenson also represents clients in a variety of other industries, including consumer goods, financial services, real estate, manufacturing, health care, technology, supplement/nutrition, telecommunications and energy.-
