WICHITA, Kan. – Who’s Who Legal: Business Crime Defense 2019 has named Dan Monnat, of Monnat & Spurrier, Chartered, one of the world’s leading business crime defense attorneys.

The London-based Who’s Who Legal publishes 34 different guides listing top-rated lawyers and courtroom experts in various sectors of corporate, commercial law, and government investigations.
“Who’s Who is unlike any of the other peer-group listings because it is truly international,” Monnat said. “Nominees have been selected based upon comprehensive, independent surveys of both general counsel and private practice lawyers worldwide. Only those who have met independent international research criteria are listed, and I’m truly honored to be included.”
Monnat has practiced in Kansas for more than 40 years, handling criminal and white-collar criminal cases that have attracted international attention, including the defense of late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.
Monnat is a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, the American Bar Association and the Kansas Bar Association.
A graduate of California State University, Monnat received his J.D. from Creighton University School of Law and is a graduate of Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyer’s College.
A frequent national lecturer and editorial contributor on criminal defense topics, Monnat is the author of “Sentencing, Probation, and Collateral Consequences,” a chapter of the Kansas Bar Association’s Kansas Criminal Law Handbook, 5th edition. From 2007 – 2011, Monnat served on the Kansas Sentencing Commission as a Governor’s appointee. He currently sits on the Kansas Trial Lawyers Association’s Board of Editors.
