International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP is pleased to announce that Kenneth (Ken) Logsdon has joined the Firm’s Finance & Restructuring Group in Salt Lake City as a Partner.
Mr. Logsdon has particular expertise in leveraged lending transactions, including senior debt, mezzanine and borrower side transactions. His practice focuses on all aspects of debt capital markets and corporate finance. He also provides counsel to national and regional banks, non-bank lenders, private equity funds, and both privately owned and publicly traded companies.
Dorsey’s Banking & Financial Institutions Group consists of more than 250 attorneys actively serving the banking industry. Consumer financial products and services, credit card operations, commercial credit transactions, bankruptcy matters, regulatory advice, real estate services, litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate services are just a few of the areas in which we serve the industry. Our Finance & Restructuring Group is a subset of our Banking & Financial Institutions Group, and consists of nearly 60 attorneys in 10 locations throughout the U.S. Of those attorneys, approximately 40 focus on commercial lending matters, with others focusing on regulatory and special assets matters. Mr. Logsdon joins Finance & Restructuring Partners Peggy Hunt, Annette Jarvis, Nathan Seim, Michael Thomson, and Steve Waterman in the Salt Lake City office.
Dorsey has made a concerted effort to grow strategically in its Salt Lake City office, by adding 32 lawyers over the last three years. With the addition of Mr. Logsdon, Dorsey’s ranks will have grown by more than 86 percent in Salt Lake City since May 2017 to a total of 69 lawyers.
Mr. Logsdon joins Dorsey from Holland & Hart, where he was a partner in the Salt Lake City office. Prior to joining Holland & Hart in 2014, he was a commercial finance associate with Katten in Chicago. He received a B.S. with honors from Utah Valley University and a J.D. from the University of Illinois College of Law. He has been recognized by Utah Business Magazine Legal Elite for the last three years, 2017-2019, which highlights attorneys for being one of the ‘best’ in Utah whom peers say they would recommend to others.
“Ken will be a great addition to our strong Firm-wide Finance & Restructuring team and to our rapidly growing Dallas office, which we opened in March 2017,” noted Bill Stoeri, Managing Partner of Dorsey & Whitney. “His experience and expertise not only complement our existing strengths across the platform in banking and finance, they also mesh well with our Mergers & Acquisitions and Capital Markets practices.”
“I am very pleased to be joining Dorsey and its great Firm-wide team of banking, finance and restructuring lawyers,” added Mr. Logsdon. “I look forward to serving Dorsey’s exceptional client base and to introducing my Dorsey colleagues to the clients I have been serving for years.”
