(Denver, Colo., December 15, 2014) - Law Week Colorado announced that Ted White has been honored as one of its “Lawyers of the Year.” White is a name partner at the Denver law firm Moye White LLP.
The prestigious list, which Law Week announces annually in December, recognizes Colorado lawyers who have been in the news, made news and displayed legal excellence over the course of the previous year.
“No one is more deserving of this accolade than Ted White,” said Moye White Managing Partner Tom List. “Ted is a legendary business lawyer whose leadership of his firm, profession and community continues to be an inspiration to his colleagues at Moye White and all who know him.”
White was recognized primarily for his work in the clean energy arena, where he has been retained by prominent San Francisco-based investor and philanthropist, Tom Steyer.
White is currently Managing Partner of Fahr LLC, an umbrella entity for Steyer’s extensive business, policy, political, and philanthropic efforts. White is charged with shaping Fahr’s business and organizational structure and advancing the organization’s goals, which are largely focused on accelerating the country’s transition to a clean energy future.
He currently divides his time between his Denver-based law firm and Fahr’s home base in San Francisco.
A Law Week profile also noted White’s achievements in the nonprofit world: he was involved with the formation of the clean-energy focused Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) and is a board member of the Rocky Mountain Institute, which is focused on cost effective shifts to efficiency and renewables. Moye White has also gone “green” and is the only Denver law firm to have become a Certified B Corporation. The prestigious designation is awarded to companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. White is a past Board Chair of the Boettcher Foundation and founding Board Chair of the Denver Biennial of the Americas. He has also been honored for his work with a variety of community organizations, including the Judith Ann Griese Foundation (Judi’s House) and Graland Country Day School.
