Northern Colorado Commercial Real Estate Attorneys

SAMSUNG CSC Otis, Bedingfield & Peters, LLC is proud to announce that attorney Timothy R. Odil was recently named one of Colorado’s “Lawyers of the Year” by Law Week Colorado Odil was selected based on his excellent work on a variety of litigation matters and his demonstrated initiative and teamwork.  The prestigious honor, which Law Week announces annually in December, recognizes Colorado lawyers who have displayed legal excellence and made news throughout the year. Receiving this distinction as a “Lawyer of the Year” reflects the high level of respect Odil has earned among other leading attorneys in the community and in similar practice areas for his abilities, his professionalism, and his integrity. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as a “Lawyer of the Year,” making this award particularly significant. Odil is a key member of the firm’s litigation team. His practice focuses on disputes among private parties as well as disputes with local, state, or federal government agencies. He handles complex commercial litigation and appeals, government and commercial contract negotiation and disputes, regulatory compliance, licensing, and rulemaking issues, as well as employment law matters.  As OBP Partner Jennifer Lynn Peters noted, “In addition to handling a large complex litigation caseload, Tim stepped into the firm in the midst of big change, and in a year helped us build our litigation department from two to six lawyers, and the firm from two to 11 lawyers. His mentorship of the younger associates on our litigation team and his pure legal ability were unmatched this year.” High pressure litigation isn’t anything new to Odil who practiced with a large national law firm for 8 years before he returned to Greeley to join the newly formed Otis, Bedingfield & Peters. Within his first year of starting at OBP Odil had upward of 10 active trial matters, including the notable High Plains Library District trustee removal litigation, which received significant news coverage earlier this year.  Odil helped the High Plains Library District secure an injunction that blocked the removal of the District’s entire Board of Trustees. This case is particularly high-profile because it pitted members of a handful of Northern Colorado communities against one another in an effort to control the District’s policies, organizational infrastructure, and budgeting processes. The firm congratulates Odil on this well-deserved honor. Otis, Bedingfield & Peters, LLC advocates for individuals, businesses, and families in the Northern Colorado region. Our clients are landowners, business owners, business professionals, businesses of all sizes, and individual families in need of guidance or representation in court proceedings involving commercial real estate or business issues. OBP routinely handles matters in the areas of real estate law, business law, environmental law, oil and gas law, estate planning, commercial litigation, probate and trust litigation, appeals, and tax law.
