Jordan Lipp, a member attorney at Childs McCune, has been selected as 2023 Lawyer of the Year by Colorado Civil Justice League. He will receive this award at CCJL’s Legislative Awards Luncheon on Oct. 10.
A longtime member of CCJL’s Legal Advisory Board, Jordan has broad experience representing manufacturers, including car, truck, farm and construction machinery, and oil and gas companies. He also works regularly with companies regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
However, Jordan’s expertise in outdoor recreation has been particularly valuable to CCJL and its members. Jordan was instrumental in drafting recent amendments to provide liability protection for agri-tourism. He likewise has practiced extensively in the Ski Safety Act and Equine Activities Act.
When a bill to address landowner liability was introduced in the legislature earlier this year, Jordan was our first call to evaluate the bill and suggest improvements. He jumped right in and has worked closely with proponents. He also provided informed and persuasive testimony during the bill’s only hearing. He has continued to work on behalf of CCJL with the Colorado Recreational Use Coalition during the interim.
Former Justice Rebecca Kourlis will keynote the Oct. 10 awards event, which will also honor legislators with the Common Sense in the Courtroom Award. The event is sponsored by American Furniture Warehouse, COPIC, Colorado Hospital Association, State Farm, Rocky Mountain Mechanical Contractors Association, Husch Blackwell, Spencer Fane and Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell.
