Tarpey has served on the firm’s Executive Committee for two years and said, “It is an honor to lead this team of brilliant, accomplished attorneys and staff. We are immensely grateful for K.C.’s steadfast leadership over the past 12 years. As the firm enters its 90th year, I am excited to work with K.C. and the entire Ireland Stapleton team on the exciting opportunities facing us and our clients.”
In her practice, Tarpey focuses on corporate governance, business formation, SEC compliance and corporate finance. She also serves on the development committee for the Rocky Mountain MS Center.
