About Douglas Foote

About me

Sparkman Foote Minor LLP is a small firm of highly experienced business lawyers focused on achieving clients' objectives with creative and practical solutions. We focus our practice on entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses and their owners and managers in all aspects of business organization, domestic and international business transactions, contracts, debt and equity financing, human resources law, tax planning, real estate, corporate governance, intellectual property management, trademarks, and general business law.


I have served as CEO, COO and CFO of companies in the medical device, environmental, and engineering and consulting fields. My representation and advice reflect an experience-based understanding of the effects of legal issues in real-world business situations and practical advice to meet those situations.


In addition to advising businesses, I also counsel lawyers, law firms, and in-house legal departments on matters of legal ethics and professional responsibility.


A reformed suburbanite, I live very near downtown Denver where I can walk or bike to work.  Before returning to Colorado, I lived in Connecticut and worked there and in New York City, and lived and worked in Australia and Hong Kong.  My wife and I enjoy the privilege of living in Colorado and take advantage of the wonderful skiing, snowshoeing, hiking and sailing [yes, sailing - Lake Dillon, at 9,000+ feet, is on the published list of 50 places in the world to sail before you die!] in the beautiful Colorado mountains.


My great pleasures in life come from my family, helping my clients understand legal matters in plain English and achieve practical solutions, assisting other lawyers to practice law ethically, and helping direct the non-profit HealthTeamWorks (, focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare, both in Colorado and nationally. I also teach Pharmacy Law atf the Regis University School of Pharmacy.
