Jason Wiener



I believe the 21st century will be defined by how mindfully and equitably we re-calibrate ownership, capital, innovation, and opportunity. I am moved in this work to expand and democratize access to all of the above.

Jason enjoys the challenge of creatively designing legal and business solutions to persistent social and environmental challenges. Jason comes to this work with a wide range of experience as an entrepreneur, litigator, activist, organizer and worker-owner. With almost two decades of experience as an attorney – including several years in BigLaw litigation and as a labor lawyer – Jason’s range of expertise and experience brings an innovative approach to solving client issues. Jason has walked in the shoes of his clients, as a social entrepreneur in his own right, and on the board of non-profits, cooperatives, and corporations. Jason has served on executive strategy, human resources, finance, and other management level teams. Jason has been a thought, do, and practice leader in the cooperative, employee ownership, impact finance and capital, and teal lawyering movements. Jason’s client work and public speaking have charted a new and grander course for the potential of democratized economic structures to re-calibrate the hazardous course set by “business as usual.” 

Jason has published more than six scholarly law review articles on international, human rights, and renewable energy topics. He speaks regularly about the worker-owned and cooperative business model, non-extractive finance, the future of work, the contemporary and teal practice of law, distributed solar policy, and sharing economy legal issues. Jason was an adjunct professor in Colorado State University’s Impact MBA, where he taught an MBA course on business law and ethics. He has been a guest lecturer at the University of Colorado Law School’s Entrepreneurial Law Clinic. Jason serves as the former Chair and a Commissioner on the Colorado Employee Ownership Commission. Most recently, he has launched a cutting edge Healing Law practice within the firm. 

His hobbies include mountain biking, yoga, hiking, running, coffee, cooking, traveling, and his greatest passion, raising his two children.
