Doug Richards, Chris Carrington earn prestigious national honor for the first time
DENVER – Doug Richards and Chris Carrington, co-founders of the commercial litigation and criminal defense law firm Richards Carrington, have each earned selection to the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and one of the most respected peer-review guides to the legal profession.
Mr. Richards’ Best Lawyers selection is based on his extensive white-collar and criminal defense practice. A former state and federal prosecutor who has tried more than 100 cases to jury verdict, he has successfully resolved numerous high-profile matters in the courtroom and has done key pretrial work in sensitive cases that has resulted in dismissals and decisions by prosecutors not to prosecute. In addition to the 2020 Best Lawyers recognition, he has earned honors by Colorado Super Lawyers and the companion Rising Stars listing, as well as an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell.
Mr. Carrington is recognized by Best Lawyers for his commercial litigation practice, which spans nearly all aspects of business and commercial litigation, from contract and fraud disputes to legal malpractice and partition and fraudulent transfer/successor liability cases. His clients are involved in such diverse industries as financial services, legal, media, and agriculture. A former state prosecutor who has tried more than 40 jury trials, he has also earned Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Stars recognition and an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell.
“Chris and I are extremely proud to have been selected by our peers to The Best Lawyers in America listing this year,” said Mr. Richards. “It’s an honor to be acknowledged for providing nimble criminal defense and commercial litigation strategies backed behind by fearless commitment to our clients.”
Best Lawyers nominated attorneys are peer-reviewed by lawyers within the same geographical region who share a practice. The publication’s research team then evaluates those nominees to make the final selections.
