He started with Parr Brown in 2005 and spent two years completing federal district and appellate court clerkships beginning in 2007. He returned to the firm with a stronger understanding of how winning arguments are prepared and presented to judges and now teaches a class on federal courts as an adjunct professor at the University of Utah, S.J. Quinney College of Law.
“Parr Brown invests heavily in training its younger lawyers, and I have been the grateful beneficiary of that investment,” said Riter. “It is a privilege to work with and learn from dynamic, experienced lawyers who treat people well and are committed to doing the highest quality work for our clients.”
President of Parr Brown, Heidi Leithead, added, “We are delighted to have both Greg and Austin advance as shareholders in the firm. They have demonstrated the initiative, hard work, creativity, and skills to gain the confidence of their colleagues. But most of all they have demonstrated the ability to achieve and maintain a trusted relationship with their clients.”
