Denver Gant

Attorney

Practice Emphasis

Denver has a unique practice that spans multiple disciplines, but his primary focus is his trusts and estates practice.  In it, he assists clients in drafting wills and trusts; he also advises clients on a broad range of estate planning and probate issues, such as guardianship, powers of attorney, and tax advice with respect to the gift tax, estate tax, and generation-skipping transfer tax planning.  In addition, Denver helps clients with business and real estate issues, including the formation, running and protection of their businesses.

Prior to joining LHSE, Denver was a partner at the Veris Law Group PLLC where he had a wide-ranging practice, including not only business, trusts and estates, but also environmental and real estate. He advised clients regarding regulatory compliance and cost recovery actions under the Washington Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA), and negotiated and drafted settlement agreements, purchase and sale agreements, leases, and easements.  He has also assisted clients in complex multi-party sites involving cleanup actions arising under state law and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).
