Who’s Who Legal: Business Crime Defense 2020 has named Dan Monnat, of Monnat & Spurrier, Chartered, one of the world’s leading business crime defense attorneys. Earlier this year, Monnat also was named as a leading attorney on the Who’s Who Legal: Government Investigations list. The London-based Who’s Who Legal selects its list based on attorneys who have significant experience in investigations, enforcement proceedings and related civil litigation, and regulatory compliance.
“Who’s Who represents an international list of legal experts and it’s an honor to be counted among these esteemed colleagues,” Monnat said.
Monnat has practiced in Kansas for nearly 45 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 Foundation, and the Kansas Bar Foundation. He has been named one of the Top 10 Super Lawyers in Kansas and Missouri in 2018 and 2019, and has been included on the Super Lawyers Top 100 list for more than a decade.
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 co-author of “Sentencing, Probation, and Collateral Consequences,” a chapter of the Kansas Bar Association’s Kansas Criminal Law Handbook, 5th edition. He currently sits on the Kansas Trial Lawyers Association’s Board of Editors.
Monnat served as a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Board of Directors from 1996 – 2004, and is a two-term past president of the Kansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
