Roger Denny provides transactional counsel to wide variety of Spencer Fane’s institutional and individual clients.

Roger represents real estate developers, investment firms, syndicators, banks, and public and privately-held companies in connection with a wide variety of transactional matters involving the use of financial incentives, tax credits and private equity funds. Roger’s understanding of the tax code and broad base of transactional experience allows him to quickly identify opportunities to obtain and leverage tax benefits and other financial incentives in structuring and documenting transactions on behalf of the firm’s institutional clients.

Roger’s sports practice focuses on the representation of coaches and athletic directors. Roger works with those individuals to identify and evaluate current and potential employment and collateral income opportunities and prepares them for meetings with the appropriate decision makers, including search firms, through the development of comprehensive interview materials. Our sports clients rely on Roger to review and structure their contracts in a tax efficient manner through the use of deferred compensation arrangements and other retirement-planning vehicles. Roger also assists in identifying, structuring documenting and developing outside business ventures.

Roger was selected for inclusion in the 2014 class of Up & Coming attorneys selected by Missouri Lawyers Weekly.
