August 22, 2018 – Sherman & Howard is proud to welcome a new associate, Morwenna Borden. She is kicking off her law career in our Private Client Group and has a focus on estate and tax planning. Morwenna graduated with her J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Minnesota Law School in 2014. Prior to joining our firm, Morwenna served as a law clerk for the Judge David H. Goldberg.
Morwenna developed a passion for the legal industry while studying philosophy as an undergrad. She found an interest in the complexity presented by many legal issues and the logical underpinnings of the legal system. Furthering that interest, she decided to pursue a practice within estate and tax planning because it is intellectually stimulating, constantly in flux and will allow her to utilize both her problem-solving skills and her commitment to high level client service.
When her search began for a firm, Sherman & Howards’s unparalleled history and reputation stood out the most to her. She also found the people she met compelling and they made an impact on her decision. Their character and dedication to the legal field increased her interest to work with the firm.
As she begins to build her practice, her mission is client-centered. She plans to deliver finely-tuned and creative solutions to the most complex estate and tax planning issues. Her practice will set itself apart because it will provide solutions for clients while maintaining high levels of service, integrity and genuine kindness.
“Building out our associate ranks is a top priority for Sherman & Howard,” Greg Densen, Chief Executive Officer. “We are committed to attracting high-level talent and bringing on the next generation of lawyers. We recognize the importance of creating an environment that ensures associate development and long-term success.”
“In five years, I anticipate building a practice that is rooted in a deep knowledge of tax code, becoming the go-to associate for the most complex and difficult planning issues, acting as a mentor and resource for new associates, and adding value to the firm by developing business,” said Morwenna.
Our Private Client Group consists of estate planning, tax law and family law services. The group works with high net worth individuals, families, business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals on all aspects of estate, gift, and multi-generational tax planning. The group has experience advising clients on a wide range of tax issues including business planning, real estate development, joint ventures, tax-free reorganizations, acquisitions and more.
“Morwenna is a part of the next generation of law and we are confident that she will add long term depth to our group,” said Bridget Sullivan, Private Client Practice Group Leader.
Outside of her legal career, Morwenna enjoys hiking, philosophy, skiing, cooking, motorcycles, mushroom foraging, woodworking and yoga. She also works closely with Swallow Hill Music, which strives to build communities through connecting people to diverse music traditions on the stage and in the classroom.
Morwenna’s one year goal is to be known as a dedicated associate who works hard and contributes to the success of the private client group and Sherman & Howard as a whole. “I am thrilled to join this incredible group of talented and intelligent individuals,” said Morwenna.
