Fortis Law Partners Expands with Addition of a New Partner

Highly regarded local attorney, Julian Izbiky, brings decades of M&A experience and a passion for helping business owners 

DENVER (Aug. 25, 2021)—Denver-based law firm, Fortis Law Partners, is pleased to welcome Julian Izbiky as a new partner. Izbiky joins Fortis from Izbiky & Langer PLLC, the firm he founded in 1988. He has devoted most of his career to assisting small to mid-level businesses with mergers and acquisitions, earning an impeccable reputation as a highly sought-after legal partner for business owners, business brokers, investment bankers and SBA lenders.

Izbiky’s expertise spans a broad range of business law. He particularly enjoys working with buyers and sellers of businesses and has managed numerous M&A transactions, varying in size from several hundred thousand dollars to tens of millions of dollars, throughout his decades-long career.

“Julian will be a significant asset to the firm and, more importantly, to our clients,” said Julie Herzog, founding partner of Fortis Law Partners. “His extensive background in mergers and acquisitions further strengthens our existing capabilities, and clients will benefit from his long-standing relationships in the business and legal communities.”

Izbiky has an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, considered the gold standard in attorney ratings and only earned by an elite group of approximately 10 percent of all attorneys. He regularly speaks on business law topics at continuing legal education courses and is a member of the Colorado and American Bar Associations, as well as the Colorado Association of Business Intermediaries.

“I genuinely care about and am committed to the success of my clients’ businesses,” said Izbiky. “They appreciate the level of practicality and pragmatism that I bring to the legal practice; it’s important to me to get their deals done in an efficient, cost-effective manner, without wasting time or money on issues that don’t matter.”

Izbiky and Fortis partner Andrew Comer will work together closely on mergers and acquisitions. Comer is head of the firm’s trademark practice group and regularly advises companies on M&A, commercial transactions, and other corporate matters affecting their formation, financing and operation.

“A big part of my decision to join Fortis at this point in my career was the opportunity to work with Andrew and Julie, both of whom I respect and enjoy immensely, as well as the chance to mentor younger colleagues,” said Izbiky. “Fortis has a deep bench of skilled attorneys, and I look forward to collaborating with them on providing exceptional service to our clients.”

Izbiky’s long-time paralegal, Kimber Foster, also joined the firm and will continue to provide high-caliber support to him and the Fortis corporate team.

Izbiky earned his undergraduate degree from Brandeis University and his law degree from the University of Michigan. Outside of work, he enjoys reading, hiking, walking his rescue dog Maisey and rooting for the Colorado Rockies.
