On this episode of White Collar Briefly, Perkins Coie’s White Collar & Investigations practice attorneys Markus Funk and Lili Timmermann interview special guest (and colleague) retired Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Mike Bender. A true original, Justice Bender discusses far-ranging topics, including his important civil rights work in the 1960s, his representation of white supremacist David Lane, who was charged with the 1984 murder of original “shock jock” Alan Berg, what caused Justice Bender to move from his New York home to Colorado, his ascension to the bench, the inner workings of the Colorado Supreme Court, life in BigLaw, and tips for practitioners young and old. We also examine the long-term impact of the pandemic on the practice of law and major changes in the art of advocacy over the past half-century.
