Holland and Hart LLP

Joe Holland and Steve Hart were highly trained lawyers who just so happened to also be Rocky Mountain climbers. Nearly 70 years ago, they came together to build a firm to buck the trend of “establishment oriented, monopolistic old firms.” Their philosophy was simple: keep going up, and if you get stuck, there is always another route to the top. This is where the spirit of the firm’s pioneering and innovation began. As in mountain climbing, team interdependence has always been the spirit of Holland & Hart. It is part of what makes us different. Today, we work with regional, national, and international clients of all sizes to tackle virtually any kind of legal issue. We help our clients ascend the “mountains” they face, in the most efficient, innovative way possible. With 500 lawyers providing a full range of services from 15 offices across the Mountain West and in Washington, D.C., our value proposition is to provide our clients a viable alternative to higher cost coastal firms and to deliver efficient, sophisticated legal solutions in the regions we serve and beyond. We strive to provide the breadth and depth of experience to enable you to meet your business objectives.
