In its 2022 guide, Chambers USA has once again ranked Ireland Stapleton as one of Colorado’s top litigation firms, and they have individually ranked Ireland Stapleton attorneys Rebecca L. Almon, James G. Benjamin, and K.C. Groves in their respective fields.

Rebecca L. Almon, who leads Ireland Stapleton’s environmental practice group, has been ranked for environmental law. In her practice, she represents both public and private companies across the country and local governments in all aspects of environmental regulation. She represents her clients in federal, state, and local permitting; compliance matters; enforcement matters; water quality and wetlands protection; and the environmental aspects of real estate and corporate transactions.

James G. Benjamin, a business and real estate attorney, is a repeat selection to the guide for his legal work in real estate. In his practice, he focuses on all aspects of commercial real estate transactions, particularly those involving office buildings, apartments, shopping centers, industrial property, and vacant land development. As a former President of the Denver Bar Association and senior member of the Bar, what he cherishes most is acting as a protecting steward of real estate law and a mentor to new lawyers.

K.C. Groves, a commercial trial lawyer, has been ranked for commercial litigation. In his practice, he works with local and national companies, business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs to resolve complex business disputes and regulatory matters. He represents his clients in jury and bench trials, appeals, arbitrations, mediations, regulatory proceedings, and litigation-avoidance strategies.
