With an entrepreneurial spirit, Ned Minor and John Brown established the firm in 1977 believing they had found a new formula for an old profession. Ned and John knew that they wanted to represent business owners. Their goal was to establish a law firm that was, itself, entrepreneurial. Their business model was to take a long term and proactive perspective for its clients' needs, develop personal relationships, and be economically efficient in its cost structure.

Minor & Brown has continued to refine its formula and is recognized as one of the leading law firms in the Rocky Mountain Region. Its client base includes many of the region’s most successful companies. Minor & Brown has earned a national reputation for its ability to close transactions regardless of the strength or weakness of opposing counsel.

Minor & Brown's foundation for success has been its planning practice: working closely with a client’s team of advisers to establish the client’s personal, professional and financial objectives is a proven path to success. The ultimate reward for the client is to select his successor (buyer) and start the next phase of his life with financial independence and security. Minor & Brown has continued to hire and train the next generation of lawyers and staff who believe in the original core beliefs and are dedicated to perpetuating its legacy.
