January 11, 2019 – Sherman & Howard is kicking off the New Year with two strategic hires – Garrett Dean and William Vietti. Garrett Dean joins the firm’s premier Business & Transactions Group and Will Vietti joins the firm’s historic Public Finance Group.
Garrett Dean represents clients in transaction matters involving contract negotiations, commercial agreements, business formations as well as intellectual property issues including matters involving licensing, trademark and copyright. Prior to joining the firm, he served as Vice President – Corporate Counsel for Intermap Technologies. Garrett’s arrival supports the firm’s concentration in the telecommunications and technology industry sectors.
“Garrett is a triple threat – a skilled lawyer, an experienced in-house attorney, and a smart businessman. His arrival supports the firm’s focus on building a dominant corporate practice in the Mountain and Southwestern regions,” said Jeff Kesselman, Business & Transactions Practice Group Leader.
Will Vietti is joining the firm’s Public Finance Group. Prior to joining the firm, Will served as a law clerk for Judge Elizabeth Crewson Paris in the United States Tax Court and worked in the Financial Instruments Group at Deloitte Washington National Tax. Will’s experience with complex tax models related to debt instruments helps build out the firm’s preeminent tax and finance capabilities for public entities.
“Will’s tax background adds critical depth to the set of practitioners that currently provide tax counsel to our clients and his addition allows us the ability to provide high-level tax advice to our public finance clients for many years to come,” said David Lucas, Public Finance Practice Group Leader. “We are very fortunate to have Will join our team.”
Garrett and Will help to support Sherman & Howard’s long-standing reputation of providing clients with a comprehensive team that can deliver practical business solutions.
