Katten opens new Dallas office with seven new partners

Katten is expanding its presence in Texas with a group of seven new partners based in Dallas where many of the firm’s clients currently do business or plan to do so.

The new office will boost Katten’s practice that handles sophisticated corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and transactional capabilities for its clients in numerous industries across the country and overseas.
“This is an extraordinary group of attorneys whose extensive skills, leadership and experience are an ideal fit for our highly regarded transactional capabilities and well-established culture of business-mindedness,” says Katten Chairman Roger P Furey. “We intend to build around our new partners and do some exciting things in Dallas. With our lawyers in Houston and other offices we were already the go-to firm for clients in Texas and elsewhere with major Environmental and Workplace Safety needs.
“Now, as we build upon this group of exceptional lawyers with deep ties in the Dallas business and legal communities, and with the support of Katten’s premier national practices in finance, financial services and private equity, we will be able to service the growing legal needs of the North Texas business community and our clients doing business there.”
The new partners, all previously with Andrews Kurth Kenyon in Dallas, include corporate attorney Mark S Solomon, who served as that firm’s Dallas managing partner and who will continue in that role at Katten. J David Washburn will serve as head of the Corporate practice in Katten’s Dallas office. Victor B Zanetti, Joseph A Hoffman, Peter Bogdanow and William L Rivers are the other corporate partners. William J Moore, a litigator, rounds out the new group of partners in Dallas, most of whom have practiced together for more than 20 years.
