Mr. Combelic works primarily on corporate and limited liability company matters.

Mr. Combelic also assists with litigation matters, writing briefs and performing legal research concerning business, contract, and tort issues.
During his time at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, Mr. Combelic held several leadership positions, including serving as Editor-in-Chief of the corporate governance law blog, The Race to the Bottom. His prior experience as an intern for the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, and various corporate law firms, is an asset in his representation of clients. Additionally, Mr. Combelic interned at both the Colorado District Court and the Colorado Supreme Court where he worked under Federal Magistrate Craig B. Shaffer and Justice William W. Hood, III, respectively. He credits his legal research skills and ability to “think like a judge” to the time he spent in both judges’ chambers.
