Fortis Law Partners promotes Charlie Carlin to Partner

DENVER (January 8, 2024)—Denver-based law firm Fortis Law Partners has named Charlie Carlin a partner in its growing practice. Carlin’s promotion recognizes the dedication and commitment to excellence on behalf of clients that he has demonstrated since joining the firm in 2021. 


Carlin is a highly skilled litigator with significant expertise in handling complex commercial litigation and internal investigations, including defending corporations and individuals in government investigations. He also has experience in securities litigation, labor and employment law, and criminal law and was recently recognized in the 2024 edition of The Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch® for commercial litigation. This honor spotlights up-and-coming attorneys who are practicing at an exceptionally high level of professionalism and competence. 

“My practice focuses on fiercely defending businesses against claims or disputes that could negatively impact the entire trajectory of the company,” Carlin said. “When clients hire me, they get someone who’s incredibly detail-oriented, passionate and competitive but also empathetic and understanding, which helps me connect with and achieve the best results for my clients.”

Carlin graduated from the University of Michigan Law School and, after that, practiced in Chicago at one of the country’s most well-regarded law firms, where he worked on class action lawsuits, government investigations, and complex commercial litigation before moving to Colorado to join the team at Fortis.

“One of the biggest things that attracted me to Fortis was that the partners had experience at the highest levels, having practiced at several preeminent national and international firms,” Carlin said. “I knew that under their guidance, I’d continue to have excellent growth opportunities, with the added benefit of joining a firm that offers a much better work/life balance.”

“When Charlie came aboard, his work ethic, dedication and skill as a lawyer were immediately apparent,” said Henry Baskerville, managing partner at Fortis and head of the litigation department. “He cares deeply about doing his best for our clients and being a good teammate and is always the hardest-working guy in the room.”
