Five lawyers from a small practice in Colorado have decided to join the Ballard Spahr office in Denver. The move means that Ballard Spahr now has more than 60 litigators in its western offices.

The new attorneys are partners Sarah B. Wallace and Andrew J. Petrie, of counsel Lisa A. Lee, and senior associates Courtney A. Levkulich and Matt A. Morr.

"We are fortunate to be able to bring into the firm five outstanding litigators with an outstanding practice," said Roger P. Thomasch, Managing Partner of Ballard Spahr's Denver office. "Our team of trial lawyers in our western offices has immediately become even stronger." Gregory Szewczyk, previously an associate of Simpson Thatcher and Bartlett, also joined the Denver office as an associate.
