Holley Driggs Law Firm Celebrates 25th Anniversary
The Nevada-Born Law Firm Commemorates A Milestone of Service to Nevada’s Business Community.
LAS VEGAS, April 13, 2021 — This month, Holley Driggs Law Firm is proud to announce its 25th anniversary. As a Nevada-based law firm, it has been our privilege to serve local, national and international clients on a broad spectrum of business needs within Nevada. From our entire Firm, we thank our clients for trusting in our expertise and helping us build into our Nevada communities and beyond.
Established in 1996 by Doug Driggs, Greg Walch, Ron Thompson, and Mark James, Holley Driggs (initially known as James, Driggs and Walch) has expanded from a four-lawyer firm out of the Hughes Center in Las Vegas, to its present team of more than 30 attorneys, and has become one of the top-regarded, small firms in Nevada. Egalitarian in nature, the Firm was founded in the belief that a dynamic group of experienced and talented lawyers from several of Nevada’s older law firms could offer clients large firm sophistication with a small firm touch. We have served over 16,000+ corporate and business clients since our foundation and many are still actively with us today.
The Firm has seen significant growth over the last 25 years, despite the disappearance of the Nevada-based law firm amid the 2007-2008 recession, and has persevered from good luck, strong client relationships and the ability to pivot and support the challenges that our clients face. In 2010, we expanded the practice to Reno, Nevada to better serve the needs of Nevadans and stand on the frontlines of new legislation that could and would impact our business clients across the state. Today, the Reno/Carson City market is flourishing with new business ventures that are expected to stimulate the economy, including the onset of the Tesla Gigafactory, Amazon fulfillment center, and the upcoming campus construction projects for the University of Nevada, Reno. Our practice growth in the Reno market is spearheaded by attorneys with significant government relationships and expertise as well as a strong understanding of natural resources, a practice area important to the more rural market.
“So many exciting things have happened since our opening 25 years ago, and we’re very proud to reach this milestone,” said Ron Thompson, founding member of the Firm and shareholder. “It is our privilege to help our clients rise from their most complicated challenges and grow in this ever-changing market.” As we commemorate this milestone and celebrate the history that brought us to this point, we are focused on our thriving current practice and evolving to meet local business needs.”
Holley Driggs’s esteemed team of attorneys and shareholders have handled many high-profile and complicated disputes and transactions over the years, including the Crescent Dunes Thermal Solar Power Plant Project, Las Vegas City Council vs. Union Pacific Railroad at Symphony Park case, Clayton Valley Lithium Project, and most recently, the CWNevada receivership case. The Firm has also received ongoing accolades from the community and their legal peers, including AV®Preeminent™ distinction by Martindale-Hubbell for many attorneys. Some of our most notable recognitions include:
- Richard F. Holley – Best Lawyers-Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights and Litigation-Bankruptcy, 1995-2021, American College of Bankruptcy Fellow, Super Lawyers 2007-2021, Nevada Business Magazine Legal Elite 2013

As we celebrate our silver anniversary, we are humbled by our ongoing success, reputation and long-lasting relationships with clients. We know that we wouldn’t be celebrating 25 years in business without them, or looking forward to the next 25 years. We look forward to meeting new challenges and making an impact in our communities, with the dedication and leadership that our clients have come to expect.
