DALLAS AND WASHINGTON, January 28, 2014 – Patton Boggs LLP has added leading attorney Daniel C. Stewart to its bankruptcy and restructuring team in Dallas. Mr. Stewart brings more than four decades of bankruptcy law experience to Patton Boggs, where he plans to help the firm build a top-flight bankruptcy practice. He joins the firm from Vinson & Elkins, where he was a partner in the Dallas office and founder of that firm’s Restructuring and Reorganization practice in 1999.
Mr. Stewart’s practice spans all aspects of debtor/creditor relationships. His major creditor representations have included agent bank, bank group, and creditor committee work. His borrower representations have included major out-of-court restructurings of public and private corporations and significant Chapter 11 debtor cases and trustee representation. Mr. Stewart has represented sellers, buyers and bidders in structuring and consummating a multitude of transactions. He has also served as Bankruptcy Trustee in hundreds of Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 cases.
Dan brings tremendous experience and a track record of building successful practices to Patton Boggs. We are energized to start the new year by adding a lawyer of his caliber to our team, and we look forward to introducing him to our clients,” said Michael S. Forshey, managing partner of the Dallas office of Patton Boggs.
The addition of Mr. Stewart continues a string of key hires made by Patton Boggs over the past several months. In Dallas, these include business lawyers Gina Betts, Ken Betts and Laurie Lang. Last fall, Patton Boggs added five attorneys in New York and Washington DC, which strengthened the firm’s capabilities in public finance, infrastructure and private investment funds.
