Vince has a broad range of legal expertise. His courtroom experience, trial-prep work, litigation background, and tax knowledge from his service at the IRS give him a better understanding of the business needs and obstacles facing his clients.

Applying this knowledge, Vince focuses on a wide range of corporate law matters, including complex commercial contract review and negotiation, formation and structuring, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, taxable consequences of business transactions, and litigation mitigation. He has also represented both buyers and sellers in multiple M&A deals ranging from $5 million to $275 million.

He often acts as outside general counsel, providing business-focused, solutions-oriented advice to entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and boards of directors, in a variety of industries from technology and aerospace to light industrials and small businesses. In Vince’s practice, he often advises on a broad range of tax matters, including federal income tax, partnership tax, corporate tax, property tax, Colorado state and local tax, and general business tax planning, to clients ranging from startups to later-stage companies.

Vince graduated with a B.S. in both Business Finance and Economics from Montana State University. He received his J.D. from the University of Montana School of Law and his Master of Laws in Tax from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.

At 17, he enlisted in the Army and was eventually deployed to Kirkuk and Samarra Iraq with an infantry line company during Operation Iraqi Freedom III from 2004-2005. It was his former squad leader who suggested he attend law school.

Vince’s desire to serve extends to his community, which led him to join the Denver Children’s Foundation in 2018, a Colorado nonprofit that raises over $1 million every year for disadvantaged kids in Denver.
