Continuing its strategic growth, Dinsmore & Shohl LLP welcomes two partners to the Denver office, enhancing the services provided at that location. Andrew B. Clauss and Christopher W. Brophy have extensive litigation experience. Their addition adds to Dinsmore’s depth and expands the Denver office into a new service area.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Andy and Chris to Dinsmore. They bring a wealth of litigation experience and expertise, which is another step in building the core legal services we can provide clients from the Denver office. We’re a stronger office with Andy and Chris, and I look forward to working with them,” said Erich Kennedy, Denver Office Managing Partner.
Prior to Dinsmore, Clauss and Brophy practiced at Lewis Brisbois. They both have more than two decades of experience litigating cases and were impressed with Dinsmore’s platform.

“We had worked with Dinsmore attorneys and were familiar with the quality of their work. When the opportunity arrived to join the firm’s exceptional litigation group and grow the Denver office, we took a closer look. It was clear that Dinsmore provided a great opportunity to further serve our clients’ needs,” said Clauss.

Andrew Clauss’ litigation practice focuses a variety of matters, including business related commercial disputes. He has litigated in both state and federal courts across the country and has represented clients before arbitration panels administrative and government tribunals, and boards. He also advises clients on electronic privacy, Internet and social media, and records retention, and he frequently presents on these issues. Previously, Clauss served as a deputy attorney general with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. He earned his J.D. from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he graduated cum laude. Clauss received his B.A. from the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Christopher W. Brophy has represented clients in all forms of commercial litigation and has argued before the Colorado Court of Appeals. Brophy also focuses on real estate disputes and counsels clients on effective records retention policies and procedures. He earned his J.D. from Cornell Law School, where he was vice president of the Brehon Law Society. He received his B.A. from Colorado State University, where he graduated magna cum laude.

Ten attorneys now practice out of the Denver office. Dinsmore entered the Denver market in 2014 with the merger with Peck Shaffer & Williams and has continued to grow that location.
