Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC announced this week that the law firm has opened a Denver office initially staffed with banking and finance lawyers Andrew J. Romanow and Jeffrey D. Harrison. Romanow is a shareholder while Harrison is a counsel.

Speaking on the expansion, Jack Barbour, Buchanan’s CEO and Managing Shareholder said, “This move will allow us to better serve our clients and position us for growth in that region with the addition of another key financial services and energy hub.” As reason for launching in Denver, he said it was in line in the firm’s strategy of expanding its reach “in the mid- and southwest in conjunction with our clients’ long term business goals.”


Buchanan has been exploring opportunities to expand, and one of the biggest such exercises was its merger earlier this year with Tampa-based Fowler White Boggs. Besides strengthening its position in Florida, the merger had also increased the head count at Buchanan by 90 lawyers taking total number of attorneys in the firm to 520.

Speaking on the decision to start an office in Denver, Rebecca Lando, chair of the firm’s Financial Services Practice said, “With major clients in the financial services sector, we have been planning for the right team to deepen our strength in agribusiness and energy finance, and Andy and Jeff’s transactional and restructuring background made them the perfect fit.”

Andrew Romanow had previously been VP and Managing Counsel for CoBank, a Denver-based Farm Credit System bank. He is well-experienced in commercial loan structuring and documentation, debt refinancing and restructuring, workouts, bankruptcy, collateral recovery, syndications and participations, Uniform Commercial Code compliance and commercial collections.
