Matthew DeArman joined international law firm Dorsey & Whitney as a partner in the firm’s Finance and Restructuring Group in Dallas.

DeArman’s practice will focus on the representation of agents, lenders and public and private corporate borrowers in a variety of finance transactions and restructuring matters, including secured and unsecured revolving and term facilities, asset-based lending, oil and gas reserve-based lending, first lien/second lien transactions, bridge and mezzanine financing, acquisitions financing, cross-border transactions and debtor-in-possession financing. His practice has an emphasis on asset-based lending and oil and gas related financings.

He joins Dorsey from Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, where he was a shareholder in the Dallas office. Prior to that, he was a partner in the corporate finance section of Norton Rose Fulbright.

“Matt will be a great addition to our Finance and Restructuring team and to our rapidly growing Dallas office, which we opened in March 2017,” said Ken Cutler, 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 perfectly with our focus industries, especially in energy and natural resources and in banking and financial institutions.”

“I am very pleased to be joining Dorsey and its great Firm-wide team of banking, finance and restructuring lawyers,” said DeArman. “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.”
