Fisher & Phillips Chairman and Managing Partner Roger Quillen said: “Since opening our Denver office in 2008, Todd Fredrickson has done a tremendous job of leading our growth from two attorneys to ten. His dedication and professionalism were instrumental in attracting such talented attorneys as those coming from Stettner Miller.”
Ken Stettner noted that he is proud that his colleagues are joining a firm with the reputation of Fisher & Phillips. “As I prepared to wind down my practice I wanted to see my colleagues continue their success and growth with a national firm that matches up with their practices. We couldn’t have found a better fit than Fisher & Phillips. Our clients will be well-served by this move.”
Bob Miller added: “Ken Stettner has been instrumental in building Stettner Miller into a widely respected law firm in Colorado. His guidance helped us get to the point where it is time to join with a firm that has a national reach, because our clients are not only in Colorado. Our clients will be very pleased with the service they will receive from our new colleagues.”
