June 5, 2018 – In a move that supports the Firm’s strategic growth initiatives and client-centered approach, Sherman & Howard added three new litigation associates to complement its Denver and Phoenix-based practices.
Prior to joining Sherman & Howard’s Phoenix office, Ilya Prokopets practiced law in New York City, where he focused on commercial litigation. He has substantial experience handling business and contractual disputes as well as real estate litigation. Ilya is licensed to practice law in both Arizona and New York and received his law degree from the New York Law School in 2013.
Yijee Jeong fortifies Sherman & Howard’s Phoenix office by bringing a unique background to the Firm’s growing Litigation Group. Yijee started her law career as an employment litigator but also has maintained a broad-based complex commercial litigation practice. She has handled matters in front of government agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Labor, and National Labor Relations Board, and she will be instrumental in building our internal investigations team. Yijee earned her law degree from Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in 2016.
Joining Sherman & Howard’s home base in Denver, Amanda Levin Milgrom strengthens our internal investigations and complex litigation practices. Amanda is well-suited to assist clients in all stages of litigation, including case assessment, factual investigation, electronic discovery, dispositive motions, trial and mediation. She earned her law degree from the University of Colorado Law School in 2014.
“Growing our Litigation Group is a primary focus of our Firm,” said Katie Varholak, Litigation Practice Group Leader. “Adding next generation talent to our ranks is critical to our ability to offer comprehensive services to our clients. The addition of Ilya, Amanda, and Yijee also supports our plans to expand our core litigation service areas: arbitrations and mediations, commercial and class action litigation, insurance recovery, and internal investigations.”
