Polsinelli Shughart PC has added a Dallas office.
Initially three attorneys will practice in the law firm’s Dallas office, said Polsinelli Shughart Chairman Russ Welsh. The firm expects to add lawyers to the Dallas office in the next few years, he said.
“As our health care and corporate practices have grown, and as the economy continues to improve, Dallas is a natural next step in providing transactional services to clients,” Welsh said.
The addition of Dallas expands the Kansas City, Mo.-based firm to eight states and 16 cities stretching from Phoenix to Washington, D.C. Welsh said. The firm has recently opened offices in Chicago, Phoenix and Denver. It has more than more than 530 attorneys nationwide.
“Dallas is part of our strategic growth plan," Welsh said. "We wanted to begin our Dallas office with a group of very talented and experienced attorneys who share our commitment to service and value."
The new attorneys in Dallas include:
-- Shareholder Jonathan K. Henderson, whose practice focuses on representing physician groups, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, home health agencies, hospice agencies, retail clinics, dialysis companies and other health care industry providers, suppliers and investors on transactional and regulatory matters, with an emphasis on health care business mergers and acquisitions.
-- Shareholder William E. Swart concentrates his practice on private equity transactions, including acquisitions and divestitures, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, finance, commercial lending and board of director representations.
