Craig N. Johnson

Craig N. Johnson serves on the firm's Executive Committee and focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation primarily for clients in the utilities, banking and financial services industries.

Craig currently serves as outside general counsel to the Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities (CAMU) and the Arkansas River Power Authority (ARPA).  His experience includes contract disputes, construction litigation, business torts, employment law, insurance coverage issues and environmental litigation. He has also litigated trademark, trade secret and copyright disputes, and has assisted clients in developing programs for the protection of intellectual property rights. In addition, he has represented banks, securities broker-dealers and other financial institutions in a variety of matters, including litigation to set aside fraudulent conveyances, corporate “raiding” and breach of fiduciary duty claims, and violation of state and federal securities regulations.

Craig has substantial trial and appellate experience, and has argued cases before the Colorado Court of Appeals, the Colorado Supreme Court and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Prior to entering private practice, he served as the law clerk to Hon. Charles Pierce on the Colorado Court of Appeals, and was an Editor of the UCLA Law Review.

Craig’s diverse experience is illustrated through his numerous published articles. He also has lectured on appellate advocacy, trial tactics and intellectual property.
