Workman Nydegger Represents Park City in Negotiations with Vail Resorts

By: Paige White

Workman Nydegger lawyers Brent Lorimer, Robyn Phillips and Dave Dellenbach represented Park City on a pro bono basis in recent negotiations with Vail Resorts over Vail’s application to register “PARK CITY” as a federal trademark.  After lengthy negotiations between Park City and Vail and community protests against the application, Vail announced Saturday that it has withdrawn its application to register “PARK CITY.”  Park City Mayor Jack Thomas stated, “The Workman lawyers did outstanding work and were extraordinarily responsive.  Brent and his team were critical to the outcome of the negotiations, and we are grateful to them for their efforts.”  Diane Foster, City Manager for Park City added that the Workman team played a “truly critical role” because they “were able to speak to the City Council in language they could understand,” “put themselves in the shoes of the client,” and “really thought through the challenges that lay before Council members as elected officials.”
