Armstrong Teasdale, a law and consulting firm based in St. Louis, has opened an office in Salt Lake City. The firm has announced that attorneys Michael Gehret and Brennan Moss have been named partners and will open the office.
Armstrong Teasdale intends to establish a full-service office in Salt Lake City, its third new market for the firm in 18 months. The office will be the company’s third in the West, with existing offices in Denver and Las Vegas.
“These are extraordinary times, and we are very fortunate to be planting a flag in Salt Lake City,” said David Braswell, Armstrong Teasdale’s managing partner. “The team on the ground will not only provide counsel across a wide range of practice areas from litigation to real estate and intellectual property, but they also share our values and are committed to excellent client service. We are excited to welcome these additions to our team and continue to grow our footprint in the region moving forward.”
Gehret has served as national litigation and bankruptcy counsel for many of the largest companies in Utah and across the country. He represents financial institutions; private equity funds; solar and power companies; healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotech companies; developers, commercial property owners, title companies and owners’ associations; and casinos and ski resorts.
Moss is also a cross-discipline attorney with experience spanning the corporate, real estate, litigation and intellectual property areas. He primarily counsels clients related to commercial litigation, real property, employment and labor, and trademark law.
