MODERATOR - MARGOT FREEDMAN ALICKS co-founded Broxterman Alicks McFarlane PC, after serving as shareholder and vice president of corporate governance with Gutterman Griffiths PC, which followed five years of corporate litigation practice in the Delaware Court of Chancery and the Delaware Supreme Court. Her practice involved expedited litigation regarding proposed mergers, acquisitions, and implementation of defensive devices such as innovative "poison pills." Her representation of Fortune 500 companies in complex commercial matters concerning corporate governance and control, contractual and other complex commercial disputes led her to work extensively with financial experts. Ms. Freedman Alicks fell in love with family law through her representation of children under the care of family services as an attorney guardian ad litem, her assistance with victims of domestic abuse in seeking orders of protection from abuse and/or for custody, and her representation of parents in termination of parental rights proceedings. She has litigated complex and high-conflict divorce disputes over several days of trial, mediated other cases to a low-impact resolution, and used her collaborative training to settle cases before they are even filed. Ms. Freedman Alicks is a speaker for continuing legal education seminars including, "A Litigation Paralegal's Guide to Case Management," for National Business Institute, April 2015. She is a member of the Colorado Bar Association, the Doyle Inn of Court, Metropolitan Denver Interdisciplinary Committee, the Colorado Collaborative Divorce Professionals, and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals. Ms. Freedman Alicks earned her B.A. degree, magna cum laude, and M.A. degree, summa cum laude, from Binghamton University; and her J.D. degree from The College of William & Mary School of Law.
