Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Charles let his imagination fly. Years later, Charles’ life is still soaring - literally and figuratively - as an accomplished pilot, musician, chair of Moye White’s Intellectual Property Group, and co-chair of its Law Practice Professionals Group.

A tenacious advocate, Charles counsels clients of every size on trademarks, copyrights, computer technology, Internet law, licensing, contracts, and other areas of intellectual property.

Merging passions for music, theatre, technology, literature, and law, Charles is uniquely suited to help technology companies, artists, and entertainers protect and defend their technology and artistic assets. While still in law school, his article, “Look What They’ve Done to My Song!,” an analysis of the Copyright Act’s compulsory license for audio recordings from a composer’s point of view, won ASCAP’s copyright law writing competition at the University of Oregon. The same year, “Scuttling the Air Pirates: Theories of Pay Television Signal Theft Liability,” became the first published comprehensive analysis of legal remedies available for the misappropriation of cable and satellite television transmissions.

Years and dozens of publication credits later, Charles continues to mix legal insight and humor in pieces for The Colorado Lawyer, such as “Spam and Cookies: How to Avoid Indigestion While Binging at the World Wide Automat” and “The Matrix Unloaded: Coping with Computer Spyware.”

Charles is also a recognized authority in the “law of lawyering,” and expert witness in legal ethics. With more than 36 years of experience, he advises and assists both attorneys and law firms with risk and law firm management strategies, professional responsibility issues, client relationships, and ethics issues arising in litigation. A frequent lecturer and author on legal ethics, Charles provides creative counsel on:

  • law firm formation;
  • mergers and dissolutions;
  • business structure;
  • advertising;
  • client issues;
  • ethics;
  • bar admissions;
  • hiring scenarios;
  • malpractice standards;
  • partnership disputes; and
  • risk management assessments to ensure compliance and enhance profitability.

Combining his interests in technology and the law of lawyering, in the 1990’s Charles launched Charles Luce on Legal Ethics and the Practice of Law, the first website devoted to Colorado legal ethics, now hosted at ColoradoLegalEthics.com.

When not working, Charles may be found piloting his 1964 Cessna Skylane through the Rockies, courtside at University of Colorado women’s basketball games, researching Colorado’s early aviation history, or playing half a dozen musical instruments. Together with his wife and three daughters, he supports three dogs, four lovebirds, and an African grey parrot named “Sherlock“ at their home in rural east Boulder County. Charles enjoys playing and listening to jazz and classical music, and the works of Charles Dickens, Jasper Fforde, Kurt Vonnegut, and Bill Bryson.
