(Denver, Colo., November 15, 2010) - Congratulations to Moye White Partners Ted White and Paul Seby, who were recently named to the 2010 Denver Business Journal Power Book, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the business, arts and legal community.
The Denver Business Journal’s Power Book features some of the top business newsmakers over the past year. Here’s how Neil Westergaard, Editor of the Journal, describes it:
"The Power Book is an exclusive and focused look at 10 business leaders in 13 industry categories who made news in the last year or who, in our judgment, otherwise deserve recognition for their most recent business accomplishments. Most of the profiles you’ll read in this special section are about companies thriving amid the unique economic challenges we face today.”
Of the ten attorneys honored in the Power Book, eight were from law firms. Richard Baer, General Counsel of Qwest Communications and John Walsh, U.S. District Attorney were also recognized. Moye White is the only law firm to have two attorneys featured in the publication. Paul Seby is the only person in the Power Book to be listed in two sections: Law and Energy/Natural Resources. Here’s what the DBJ said of their accomplishments:
“Ted White was a driving force behind the 2010 Biennial of the Americas, a month-long celebration of culture, ideas and people of the Western Hemisphere that the City of Denver hosted in July. As Chairman of the Biennial board, White and his Moye White colleagues donated more than $150,000 in pro bono legal work to the nonprofit organization who runs the event. White also serves as Vice President of the International Alliance of Law Firms, a 20-year-old international network of 52 member law firms around the world that refer legal services to other Alliance members and their clients.”
“As Chair of Moye White LLP’s energy and natural resources practice group, Paul Seby has won a number of high-profile cases. He’s been a key player in an ongoing public lands case involving the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule, which bans most logging and road construction. Seby has helped the Colorado Mining Association (CMA) and the State of Wyoming challenge the rule numerous times; an appeals court decision still is pending in one case, which could reach the U.S. Supreme Court. Seby also helped the CMA win a state appeals court ruling this year that barred the Colorado Department of Revenue from increasing the coal severance tax.”
Paul was also listed in the Energy and Natural Resources Section, which stated, “Paul Seby is representing the Colorado Mining Association in a long-running case over management of about 58 million acres of roadless public lands across the nation. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard the case in March, but there has been no ruling as of mid-October. Environmental groups and industry associations are battling over whether a 2001 rule by the U.S. Forest Service should be implemented or invalidated. The rule banned new road projects on about 30 percent of public lands the agency oversees nationwide. The rule affects about 4.5 million acres in Colorado and a similar amount in Wyoming."
Paul and Ted were honored with the other finalists at a Denver Business Journal event last month. We are very proud of Ted, Paul and all of our attorneys who continue to be leaders in the legal and business community.
