Untangling complex litigation, corporate, and regulatory matters.

Ben Larson is a trial and appellate attorney at Ireland Stapleton Pryor & Pascoe. In his practice, Ben works with business owners, individuals, and local governments to help them with complex commercial and regulatory matters. He is adept at untangling a wide range of issues such as antitrust, business dissolution, breach of contract, construction defect, product defect, employment law, oil and gas, intellectual property, business professional liability, and securities claims. Ben has also represented several political campaigns on election law issues to guide them in getting initiatives on the ballot. As part of his election law practice, Ben frequently litigates issues before the Colorado Supreme Court, where he has achieved victories on constitutional issues of first impression.

In addition to his litigation work, Ben is adept at advising his business clients on a wide range of corporate and regulatory matters, including best practices for business formation and governance to avoid litigation from internal and external disputes. Whatever the challenge presented, Ben channels his broad background of knowledge from his litigation, corporate, and regulatory experience to solve complicated problems for his clients. Ben’s strength lies in his unique ability to take on a problem from its initial stages and, if necessary, see it through to a successful resolution at the highest state or federal courts.

Ben joined Ireland Stapleton after graduating with highest honors from the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. Prior to law school, Ben worked in banking and spent two years teaching English in Japan.
