From a press release late last week out of the Denver Mayor's office:
Mayor Michael B. Hancock today appointed Scott Martinez as City Attorney for the City and County of Denver, a key position responsible for advising and representing the city on a broad range of legal and policy matters. The Mayor also announced the departure of Doug Friednash, Denver’s City Attorney since 2011…
…In his capacity as City Attorney, Martinez will provide legal representation to all city officials, agencies, departments, boards and commissions, as well as 200 attorneys and staff.
“I am committed to bring cutting-edge solutions to our evolving legal landscape and honored to assume such an important role,” Martinez said. “It’s a dream come true to serve as Mayor Hancock’s counsel, and I will defend the city and its people with all that I have.”
Friednash is leaving the City Attorney's office tol join Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck as a shareholder in its Government Relations Group.
