As head of the corporate/securities practice, Julie Herzog handles a wide variety of corporate, securities and merger and acquisition transactions. She has handled transactions valued at over $4 billion for major public companies and investment banks and enjoys working with a diverse clientele ranging from Fortune 100 corporations to startups, family offices, and venture capital and private equity funds. Since 2013, Julie negotiated and closed over 100 transactions valued at over $1.5 billion on behalf of our clients. Her clients represent a variety of industry sectors, including business consulting, cannabis, food and beverage, manufacturing, real estate, retail, technology, and other services. She has counseled several hundred companies from inception through initial public offerings or successful sales.
Before joining the firm in 2003, Julie practiced corporate and securities law for more than eight years at major international law firms, Morrison & Foerster’s Denver and Hong Kong offices and Jones Day’s Chicago office. In 2004, she started her own clothing business, grew the business over three years and successfully sold it in 2007. Her experience managing the entire lifecycle of a business adds value to her work with clients.
Each client has varying demands and requirements and Julie has earned a reputation for respecting the unique qualities of each of her clients. Her approach is refreshingly down-to-earth as she meets her clients’ business objectives, while appropriately addressing the legal and business risks. Having been on both sides of the desk, she understands the importance of timeliness, efficiency and other factors that create quality customer service—and that is what she delivers.
Julie has been involved in a variety of charitable organizations during her career. As the Chair of the Underwriting Committee for the Women Inspiring Leadership Development (WILD) Summit she helped create the initial Summit in 2013, raise nearly $260,000 in donations, and grow participation to over 500 women in 2014. She has volunteered at Anchor Center for Blind Children, served as an Associate Board member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and served as a Guardian ad Litem through the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center.
In her free time Julie enjoys spending time with her triplets, country western dancing, yoga, golf, running, skiing and she loves personal development and learning opportunities. She and her triplets earned their black belts in karate in 2017. She is also a founder and President of Chrysalis Development Group LLC, which invests in real estate.
