Colin Moriarty

Colin Moriarty focuses his practice on business and commercial litigation and arbitration. Using a trial attorney’s perspective, he advises business clients on contract issues, including drafting and interpreting contracts and resolving issues before litigation is required. Mr. Moriarty is a firm believer that if counsel cooperate and understand the facts and the law, the possible outcomes of trial can be predicted, expected value calculated, and a reasonable settlement or trial strategy determined based on that value.

Over the past 17 years Mr. Moriarty has litigated business disputes, construction and fabrication defect claims, employment discrimination lawsuits, subcontractor litigation, state RICO fraud lawsuits, civil theft disputes, insurance appraisal and adjustment disputes, and other lawsuits involving complex commercial and construction matters. Outside of the business arena, Mr. Moriarty has represented clients in collections matters, bankruptcy cases, and personal injury claims.

Mr. Moriarty is actively engaged in teaching about the law. As a law student and young lawyer, he helped teach test prep for the LSAT. Alongside his mentor, Joanne Underhill, he has presented seminars to business owners since 2014 on topics like business planning, independent contractor classification, gambling law related to business promotions, contract drafting, profit and loss recovery in insurance claims, and other matters. He has also taught at the CBA-CLE Employment Law Conference. He is the author of Navigating a Fallen Sky – Civil Theft and Contracts After Blueradios, which was published in the January 2022 edition of the Colorado Lawyer.

Mr. Moriarty received his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, D.C. in 2005. He was admitted to practice law in Colorado in 2005 and is admitted to practice in the federal courts in Colorado. A member of the Georgetown Gilbert & Sullivan Society, Mr. Moriarty also seeks to squeeze in the occasional musical production in Colorado when his busy schedule allows.
