Bob Montgomery has practiced business law for over 25 years. Mr. Montgomery provides specialized services to several Fortune 500 companies; he represents medium-sized companies in connection with their development, acquisition, divestiture and financing of projects, joint ventures and other businesses; and he acts as trusted general counsel and business advisor to small companies and entrepreneurial individuals.

Among other specialties, Mr. Montgomery is one of the leading energy lawyers in the Rocky Mountain region. He regularly represents a large local utility in connection with its thermal and renewable energy power purchase agreements, and a variety of other work; he has significant experience in the development and financing of commercial-scale solar energy facilities; and he represents several wind energy facility developers on a regular basis.

Mr. Montgomery also has significant transactional experience in several other industries, including high technology, manufacturing, real estate, mortgage banking, and distributorships, both in Colorado and throughout the United States. He handles mergers and acquisitions; issuances of stock and LLC membership interests; commercial sales; syndications of equity and debt; partnerships; general contract work; loans and other secured transactions; legal opinions; and business formations. Mr. Montgomery usually acts as prime counsel for his clients, but he also frequently acts as local Colorado counsel for large out-of-state law firms in multi-jurisdictional transactions. Mr. Montgomery quarterbacks transactions from concept, to term sheet, through negotiations, until closing.

Mr. Montgomery especially prides himself on his cost-effectiveness. Clients welcome his emphasis on budgetary discipline in these difficult economic times. As noted recently in The Wall Street Journal, sophisticated consumers of legal services are increasingly turning to smaller firms and lawyers like Mr. Montgomery for work of the same quality, but at a fraction of the cost charged by larger firms.

The depth and breadth of Mr. Montgomery's experience in a variety of industries, combined with his joint M.B.A. and J.D. degrees from Harvard, have armed Mr. Montgomery with the knowledge, poise and judgment to accomplish assigned tasks, to bring parties together, and to reconcile apparently divergent interests, all within the time frames required by his clients. His work is marked by creativity, value and clear communications. Bob gets deals, and he gets deals done.
