Davis & Ceriani was founded in 1978 by Rick Davis and Gary Ceriani with a friendship and philosophy that has always placed the long-term interests of Davis & Ceriani’s clients first.

The year prior to founding Davis & Ceriani, Mr. Davis obtained the first Colorado verdict of more than one million dollars in a personal injury case. Over the years, Mr. Davis developed a thriving business representing national and locally prominent developers, residential and commercial builders, lenders and investors at every stage of real estate acquisition and development and litigated numerous real estate and business-related disputes. He is responsible for the development and implementation of the legal framework for several well-known residential and commercial projects in the Denver metro area. Mr. Davis, now retired, was an excellent transactional and trial attorney, a rare combination.

Mr. Ceriani’s and Mr. Davis’s extensive experience, dedication to excellence, and their client-first philosophy remain the foundational core of Davis & Ceriani today. On the litigation side, this philosophy drives us to help clients make decisions based not on the emotion of today, but on a calm and reflective evaluation of the long-term costs and benefits. On the transactional side, we focus not just on getting a particular deal done, but on helping the client assure that the deal furthers the client’s global business plan.
