Honorees for the 2022 Colorado Law Alumni Awards were announced today, October 6, 2021. Among the six honorees is George V. Berg Jr., a founding partner at Berg Hill Greenleaf Ruscitti LLP. This University of Houston Bates College of Law alumni has been practicing law in Boulder and beyond for nearly 30 years. The impact he and his legal practice has had in this community is incredible. We believe this is why Colorado Law is honoring him with the Richard Schaden Adopted Alumnus Award next March.
George V. Berg Jr. is one of four founding partners of Berg Hill Greenleaf Ruscitti LLP. Mr. Berg’s practice of over 45 years emphasizes complex commercial transactions, litigation, real estate, construction, banking and finance, and insurance coverage law.
