Rosemarie Del Monte
Rosemarie began her law career practicing at large international and regional law firms in the areas of public finance and real estate. She later worked as in-house counsel in the development and legal departments of a number of large restaurant companies. Seeking a more balanced life, she launched a private practice primarily focusing on commercial leasing, franchise work, real estate development and general business matters. The majority of Rosemarie’s clients are restaurant companies and restaurant franchisees. In addition to working the tenant side of transactions, she also represents several sophisticated institutional landlords and developers. Her background as a member of the development team for a number of publicly and privately held restaurant companies honed Rosemarie’s practice to focus on practical solutions with an emphasis on “getting the deal done” while protecting her clients.
Rosemarie is a Colorado native who graduated magna cum laude from the University of Northern Colorado where she majored in Elementary and Special Education. After teaching for a few years, she changed careers and attended the Creighton School of Law where she focused on corporate finance and business law graduating magna cum laude. She is often a speaker on franchisor/franchisee leasing issues at the annual ICSC Law Conference and has served as an expert witness on certain business and real estate matters. Rosemarie is involved in a variety of community service projects and was appointed by Governor John Hickenlooper as a Commissioner on the Colorado State Fair Board Authority in 2016. She still uses her background in education by mentoring younger lawyers and helping her clients to establish best practices.
