Spencer Fane LLP is pleased to announce the addition of Erica Montague to the firm’s Denver office. She will serve as an associate in the Special Districts practice group after previously working as a summer associate and legal intern for the firm.
Montague’s practice will involve representing real estate developers and various governmental entities across the state of Colorado, including metropolitan districts, water and sanitation districts, business improvement districts, fire districts, authorities and other local governments. She adds strength to an important area of focus for the firm in assisting developers and districts with their organizational, management and financial needs so they can build, operate and maintain public facilities, programs and services.
Prior to law school, Montague worked as a litigation paralegal for more than 16 years, gaining significant experience in several areas of law.
“Spencer Fane attorneys have been representing developers, districts and all forms of local governments in meeting every facet of their legal needs for decades in Colorado. Erica gives us another valuable resource in providing full service to clients in this unique and important area of law,” said Ron Fano, Managing Partner of the Spencer Fane office in Denver. “A stint in our Summer Associate Program and then as a legal intern allowed Erica to integrate and understand our firm culture, and she will be a great addition to our firm and our municipal practice group. We look forward to having Erica help strengthen the services we provide and the relationships we have with our clients.”
Montague completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder before earning her Juris Doctor from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. During law school, she participated in the University of Denver’s Environmental Law Clinic and represented clients in cases pending before the Denver District Court and the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. She was also highly involved in the University of Denver’s nationally recognized Water Law Review, and these experiences inform her ability to handle a wide range of Environmental Law issues for districts and other entities, including water infrastructure projects, permitting and compliance.
