National law firm Ballard Spahr LLP is expanding its Front Range business and finance reach by adding three Boulder-based attorneys.

The Philadelphia-based firm's chair, Mark Stewart, said the new partners are Carin Cutler, Nathan Seiler and Steven Dupont, who are based in Boulder where there is a growing hub for emerging growth companies and venture capital and private equity investments in the life sciences, technology and natural products.

“We were looking for a particular mix of skill and experience and we found it in this group,” Stewart said. “The people drove the decision to expand to Boulder. The entrepreneurial nature of the Boulder area, coupled with our established presence in Denver and in the Western United States, made this a particularly advantageous opportunity.”

According to Ballard Spahr, Cutler and Seiler represent companies and investors in equity and debt financings by venture capital, private equity and strategic investors, mergers and acquisitions, recapitalizations, and general corporate matters.
