Norton Rose Fulbright has appointed public finance partner Bryon Farnsworth as the new Partner-in-Charge of the global law firm's Denver office. Farnsworth succeeds Gene Lewis, who recently became Norton Rose Fulbright's US Head of Business Practice.
Norton Rose Fulbright's Denver lawyers handle complex litigation of all types, including environmental disputes, as well as cybersecurity issues, investigative and regulatory matters, corporate deals and public finance transactions.
Farnsworth, a member of the National Association of Bond Lawyers, said:
"I am proud to lead our Denver office, as we stay focused on providing outstanding client service to clients both locally and globally. I assume this new role at an exciting time for Norton Rose Fulbright, as we continue to receive new opportunities from our global platform."
Farnsworth concentrates his public finance practice on the healthcare and financial services industries. He has acted as bond counsel, borrower's counsel, underwriter's counsel, issuer's counsel and disclosure counsel on public finance matters involving 501(c)(3) borrowers, multi-state hospital systems, nonprofit and for-profit senior living communities, governmental entities and prepaid natural gas supply contracts.
Daryl Lansdale, Norton Rose Fulbright's US Managing Partner, said:
"Bryon embraces our special culture at Norton Rose Fulbright which, coupled with his strong local business connections, will make him an exemplary leader of our Denver office. We are excited to see him flourish in his new role with our firm."
Farnsworth received his JD from Harvard Law School and his BA in political science and philosophy from the College of Idaho. He joined Norton Rose Fulbright's Denver office in 2012.
