Laurence (Trip) W. DeMuth, III



Laurence "Trip" DeMuth has tried over 100 trials and arbitrations, 80 of which went to juries. His extensive trial experience makes him unafraid of trial when necessary, and enables him to develop cases for the best possible outcome. Trip's years of experience in the areas of commercial, construction, real estate and environmental litigation also assists him in assessing cases early to facilitate a quick resolution of disputes, without the need or expense of trial.

In 2011, Colorado Law Week recognized Trip's jury verdict in a fraud and breach of contract case as the seventh-largest jury verdict in Colorado. His winning record has also made him a trusted advisor to his clients, including serving on the steering committee for a multi-billion dollar international company as it considered expansion into China.

Winning Trial Record

Since entering private practice in 2000, Trip has compiled an impressive winning trial record, including six trials to court, four jury trials and three arbitrations. He has secured millions of dollars in judgments and damages for his clients and favorable verdicts on a range of complex matters.

Prior to joining FaegreBD, Trip was a prosecutor in the Boulder County District Attorney's office from 1984 to 2000. That experience has proven invaluable to the private practice clients he has represented in court since 2000.
