About Us

There is a Better Way...

Since its formation in 2013, Larimer Law has focused on delivering best-in-class service to its clients at best-in-market costs.  The practice of law has changed dramatically in the Digital Era and our attorneys understand that utilization of technology, collaborative representation, and proportional problem solving are fundamental to modern legal services. 

Larimer Law’s core competencies include a full spectrum of legal services, consulting solutions and thought leadership in eDiscovery, Information Governance, and Commercial Litigation.

One of Larimer Law’s core strengths is our ability to “right size” projects and rapidly scale our team as necessary to meet the document review and production schedules.
