WICHITA, Kan. – Who’s Who Legal: Business Crime Defense 2016 has named Dan Monnat, of Monnat & Spurrier, Chartered, one of the world’s leading practitioners in the sectors of Business Crime Defense and Investigations. The publication is a strategic research partner of the American Bar Association’s Section of International Law. Monnat is one of only two attorneys in Kansas to be selected.
Monnat has practiced in Wichita for more than 40 years, handling criminal and white-collar criminal cases that have attracted worldwide attention. He is a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Criminal Lawyers and the Litigation Counsel of America.
“I’m truly honored to be recognized among this worldwide group of exemplary attorneys,” Monnat said. “I believe this recognition is also a tribute to the quality of our criminal justice system in Kansas and in the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Rulings in the Heartland sometimes resonate globally, and can have a potential impact on white-collar criminal defense strategies worldwide.”
