When Ira C. Rothgerber Sr. and Walter Appel established their small legal practice in downtown Denver in 1903, even they could not have imagined what they were starting. Never would they have dreamt that their friendly, informal partnership would grow to an approximate 75-attorney firm with three branch offices and a 100-year legacy of integrity, leadership, public service and innovation.
In 1903, Denver was a bustling, rapidly growing frontier city of 170,000 people. For more than 50 years, these dedicated, skilled attorneys worked together and built their law practice based on client service and a deep regard for the legal profession. By the mid-1900s, the population had climbed to more than 500,000, the metropolitan area had grown by more than 50 square miles and numerous suburban cities had been established.
Today, the Denver-area population has reached more than 2.5 million, and the city has become the business center of the Rocky Mountain West. The law firm of Rothgerber Johnson & Lyons LLP has grown and evolved with the region and has emerged among the ten largest legal partnerships in Colorado—and one of its most respected.
