Moye White Attorneys to Join Fennemore This Month

Fennemore announced April 1 that roughly 80 lawyers and legal professionals will join Fennemore’s Denver office later this month. The new team members will join Fennemore laterally from Moye White, according to Fennemore’s announcement. 

“Our decision to join Fennemore is about expanding on our vision for growth to become the go-to business law firm in the West,” Merc Pittinos, former managing partner of Moye White said in a press release. “Together, we capture the best of both worlds — leading business acumen and legal experience — to deliver unmatched service to our clients.” Pittinos will serve on Fennemore’s management committee, according to the announcement. John McHugh will continue to serve as the Denver office managing partner.

Fennemore, which also combined with Denver trial and litigation firm Reilly LLP in 2021, had roughly 10 attorneys located in Colorado prior to the addition from Moye White. Fennemore currently has 17 offices and just over 240 attorneys nationwide, according to Law Week’s two most recent Colorado 200 lists. With the added attorneys from Moye White, Fennemore will become one of the largest law firms in the state based on local headcount. 

“I know from experience that tapping the new Denver additions will result in greater opportunity and enhance our ability to serve clients creatively and efficiently,” said Fennemore director and business litigation attorney Dan Reilly about the expansion in a press release. “These lawyers bring even more muscle to our bench and expand our reach across Colorado and the Rocky Mountain states.” Reilly was the founder of Reilly LLP.

In a press release, the firm noted this expansion marks Fennemore’s fourth significant move in 2024. Since Jan. 1, Fennemore has combined with San Diego’s Sullivan Hill, Seattle’s Savitt Bruce & Willey and Sacramento’s Wagner Kirkman Blaine Klomparens & Youmans.

Ted White, previously with Moye White and one of its named partners noted in a press release, “Joining Fennemore represents a unique opportunity to deliver top-tier client service while leveraging Fennemore’s cutting-edge technology and its organizational leadership. This new chapter at Fennemore is a testament to our dedication to a future-focused, innovative legal practice.”

Moye White moved into a new Denver office last year off Delgany Street in the River North Art District, or RiNo. The firm also has an office in Atlanta, Georgia, and one in Basalt, Colorado.
