8/16/17

More than 100 Ballard Spahr attorneys across the country have been included in the 2018 edition ofThe Best Lawyers in America, regarded as one of the definitive guides to the country's leading attorneys.

Among the Ballard Spahr lawyers recognized is Roger P. Thomasch. Mr. Thomasch, a partner in the firm's Denver office, died on July 14, 2017.
