Denver Attorney Named 2018 Colorado Super Lawyer®
Armstrong Teasdale, a law firm with offices across the United States, proudly announces that trial lawyer Charles W. Steese has been named among the 2018 Colorado Super Lawyers®. Steese is based in the firm’s Denver office.
Super Lawyers is an annual list of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selection for Super Lawyers includes peer nominations, a blue-ribbon panel review process and independent research on candidates.
Steese, who is also the Denver office managing attorney, has successfully tried more than 40 complex commercial cases in courts and before regulatory bodies across the U.S. He focuses on high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation matters for his clients, and their cases often involve parallel litigation and regulatory or other proceedings. For example, in 2017, Steese tried a four-week bench trial where the Colorado Attorney General’s Office was seeking over $240 million in damages. Steese’s engineering background enhances his ability to handle complicated cases efficiently and effectively. He has obtained unique experience in the areas of telecommunications, intellectual property and higher education. His work has even influenced the way government regulates telecommunications companies specifically in the area of “traffic pumping” (also known as access stimulation). At the forefront of this issue, Steese tried the first such lawsuit and has gone on to handle numerous cases throughout the country. The decisions Steese obtained had a direct impact on the FCC finding that this practice cost the industry billions of dollars, and as a result, modified its existing rules.
The Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are published in the 2018 Colorado Super Lawyers Magazine.
