“Alan’s ability to produce results while building lasting client and firm relationships makes him a natural fit for this leadership role,” said Michael Ferrin, Chair of the firm’s Transactional Practice.

He will also direct the focus of the firm’s c-level executives and work closely with the firm’s equity partners. His guiding principle will be the firm’s growth—both in terms of quality lawyers and expanding personalized, precision legal services across Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico.

Pernell McGuire, the firm’s retiring Managing Partner, noted, “Alan has not only been an originator of great legal work due to his reputation for excellence, but also a trusted leader within our team. His ascension to Managing Partner is well-deserved.”

“In his years with us, Alan has embodied the firm’s core values, demonstrating an exceptional ability to lead and innovate,” added Douglas Gardner, Chair of the firm’s Consumer Practice.

“We have every confidence that Alan’s leadership will take this firm to even greater heights,” concluded Robert Sewell, Chair of the firm’s Litigation Department and host of the international podcast ‘Is That Even Legal?’.

Alan himself is enthusiastic about his new role. “I’m honored to serve as the Managing Partner of such an accomplished and storied firm. My focus will continue to be on delivering high-quality legal services and contributing to our growth in Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico.”
