Greenberg Traurig's Christopher Neumann Awarded Prestigious Marshall Memorial Fellowship

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 5, 2007 -- Chris Neumann, shareholder in the Denver office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, has been selected as an American Marshall Memorial Fellow. Neumann is one of 57 individuals chosen nationwide for this exclusive program which aims to provide these American leaders in the public and private sectors with firsthand experience of European institutions, culture, and society. As an American Marshall Memorial Fellow, Neumann will travel to Europe this fall for a three-week expedition designed to deepen understanding, promote collaboration and stimulate exchanges of practical experience between Americans and Europeans.

The Fellowship Program was instituted in 1982 by the German Marshall Fund of the U.S. Its goal is to educate the next generation of American and European leaders on the importance of the transatlantic relationship and to encourage them to work collaboratively on a range of international and domestic policy challenges. Fellows are selected through a competitive nationwide process and come from government, media, business, and the non-profit sector.

Throughout his extensive tour of Europe, Neumann will take part in a variety of discussions, meetings and site visits designed to paint a detailed picture of the economic, political and social issues facing Europe today. Upon his return to the United States, Neumann will join a network of more than 800 European and American alumni who continue to actively participate in various programs sponsored by the German Marshall Fund.

"Greenberg Traurig is very pleased with Chris's appointment," said David Palmer, Managing Shareholder of the Denver office. "The MMF program brings together the best and the brightest from across the United States, and gives them a unique opportunity to explore Europe and the challenges of the transatlantic relationship. I am confident his active participation as an alumni of the program will provide ongoing opportunities to make a difference in this arena."
