Am Law 200 firm Lathrop GPM promotes Adam Yantorni to CIO

Lathrop GPM today (27 September) announced the promotion of Adam Yantorni to chief information officer. Yantorni led the firm’s transition to a virtual/hybrid workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic and has served as interim CIO since March 2022, when Gillian Power moved to civil rights group Lambda Legal.

A 17-year veteran in the field of law firm information technology management, Yantorni joined the firm in 2011 as part of its combination with Denver-based law firm Kamlet Reichert. He has held several roles within the firm’s technology services department and was integral to preparing the firm’s IT infrastructure for the combination between Lathrop Gage and Gray Plant Mooty in 2020.

“In the time Adam has served as our interim CIO, he has done a tremendous job leading the technology services department to focus on the work that will help advance the firm’s technology blueprint, for both the near and long-term,” said Courtney Landon, chief operating officer. “We are grateful for the leadership Adam has shown during his tenure and look forward to what he will accomplish in this new role.”

Yantorni will be responsible for operational, security and infrastructure technology improvements and facilitating integration across practice groups and administrative departments. Having played a strategic role in Lathrop GPM’s COVID-19 technology response, Yantorni will also play an integral part in the firm’s plan to transition all of its offices to a flexible, hotelling model over the next few years – a shift led by the opening of a new Denver office in September 2022, to be followed by a new office in Minneapolis late 2023/early 2024.
