Two years ago, Michael Davis left his Denver solo practice to help Neil Gorsuch get confirmed as a Supreme Court justice. Davis had clerked for Gorsuch at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

Davis went on to clerk for Gorsuch again on the high court and then signed on with Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, as chief nominations counsel, playing a key role in an even more contentious Supreme Court nomination, this time for Brett Kavanaugh.
