Banking and Finance Law

We consider Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson to be our "go-to" law firm for all corporate needs. We are a $1 billion-plus community bank located outside of Colorado, and Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson helps us in nearly all of our regulatory matters, corporate structure and capital issues, shareholder interaction, mergers and acquisitions, non-bank subsidiaries, real estate matters, and general contracts and agreements. They know our state, our geography, our regulators and our competition. They are well-versed in all the aforementioned areas, and they not only are responsive and understanding, but they also care about our bank and our people. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Commercial Litigation

As a Court Appointed Receiver I need counsel on some cases. I primarily work with Duncan Barber of Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson. His ability to understand the case and what needs to be done is what makes him so efficient with his billing time. The complaints he drafts spell out all the relevant matters, and he gets the Judge to understand the real issues in the case. I would absolutely recommend this firm.

Insurance Law

We had a construction defect case going in multiple directions, with numerous carriers and needed a firm to bring the case back in line. Steve Shapiro and his group at Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson were instrumental in getting all parties to the table, working together for the betterment of the case and protecting our firm in the process. They handled all the insurance negotiations for us throughout the entire settlement process. Their knowledge and understanding of insurance law is outstanding, they do an excellent job managing the process and the monies spent utilizing them was well worth it. I would highly recommend them and wouldn't consider utilizing anyone else.
