WEEKLY SPOTLIGHT

Attorney of the Week
David Denney

Mr. Denney’s practice encompasses both corporate transactions and business litigation. Prior to forming the firm in early 2007, David practiced with Vial, Hamilton, Koch & Knox, LLP, where he was a member of the Litigation and Corporate Transaction Practice Groups, and where he founded and chaired the Food, Beverage, and Hospitality Practice Group. Some of the clients with whom we have been privileged to work over the years have been in industries as diverse as bespoke letterpress printing, commercial landscaping, member-based private air travel, turn-key retail development, medical, and non-profit, as well as myriad restaurants, bars, private chefs, caterers, breweries, wineries and distilleries. Our small firm is agile: an efficient ninja strike force, capable of adapting and turning on a dime – not a battleship that is impossibly slow to turn.
