Peggy Richter '76

Until her recent retirement, Peggy Richter was a partner at Kutak Rock LLP, a national law firm of approximately 500 lawyers with 17 offices across the country. She was co-chair of the Corporate Department in the Denver office, served on the firm's national Policy Board, chaired the firm's Audit Letter Committee and served on the Policy Board's Diversity Committee.

Her practice focused on real estate, finance, corporate and natural resource matters, representing real estate investment trusts, financial institutions, corporations and other entities in a variety of transactions. She was lead real estate counsel in a sale-leaseback financing transaction reported by The Wall Street Journal to be the largest such transaction in the United States at that time. Peggy also represented a nonprofit client in connection with the purchase, lease and development of properties for community development purposes (including the development of a public library and a Boys and Girls Club recreational center).

Peggy served as President of the Alliance of Professional Women and through her volunteer work on the Board of its affiliate, The Alliance Foundation, which promotes microfinance lending in Third World countries, Peggy helped establish numerous village banks on a number of continents. She also provided pro bono legal services to and served on the board and as secretary of The Colorado Humane Society & SPCA, an affiliate of the Denver Dumb Friends League, assisting with the preparation and prosecution of animal cruelty and neglect cases.

Peggy graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a B.S. in 1976 and received an MLS from Long Island University (C.W. Post Campus) in 1979. She previously worked for the American Bar Association in Washington, DC where she attended law school at George Washington University. After meeting her husband and moving to Colorado, Peggy transferred and received a JD from the University of Denver College of Law in 1985. She lives with her husband, Alan Ogden, three cats and a dog, in their new home in Blaine, Washington where, against Peggy's better judgment, she has taken up the game of golf in her retirement.
