Sam Harden works out of the firm’s Denver office, where his practice largely focuses on corporate transactions and employment compliance.

A Colorado native, Sam returned to Denver following law school graduation and Bar passage in California. Currently licensed to practice in both California and Colorado, Sam enjoys supporting clients through all stages of business development and operations. From providing corporate assistance with entity formation, recapitalizations and restructurings to developing company policies and drafting agreements for compliance with constantly evolving state and federal employment law regulations, Sam provides businesses with advice to minimize risk and advance their best interests. Sam’s work with corporate clients also allows for involvement with Messner’s Liquor Licensing and Real Estate practices.

While in law school, Sam completed an internship in business and legal affairs for The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute in Vail, Colorado. Sam earned his undergraduate degree from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio following a year of playing junior hockey outside of Chicago. At Miami, Sam combined his interests in law and sports to work with the school’s NCAA Academics and Compliance office.

In his free time, Sam enjoys golfing, skiing and otherwise being outdoors with friends unless he has an Avalanche, Nuggets or Broncos game to watch.
