Stinson Leonard Street LLP announced that Douglas R. Dalgleish, an attorney with significant trial and appellate experience, has joined the firm's Business and Commercial Litigation I Division as a partner in the firm's Kansas City office. Prior to joining the firm, Dalgleish was a partner at Lathrop & Gage LLP in that firm's Kansas City, Mo. office.
Dalgleish has a broad profile of first chair experience representing clients at trial and on appeals before federal and state courts throughout the U.S. His experience helped him gain entry into the American College of Trial Lawyers as a Fellow. The ACTL is a prestigious association that consists of a select group of accomplished trial attorneys. Fellowship is extended by invitation only to those attorneys who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Stinson Leonard Street has five ACTL Fellows, including Dalgleish.
Dalgleish's list of representative litigation matters includes high-profile, precedent-setting cases, including the Missouri Supreme Court case that established work product opinion protection. He has been the successful counsel in a wide variety of cases, including shareholder derivative litigation, wrongful death, negligence, long term supply and revenue division contract disputes, toxic tort and products liability. Dalgleish has successfully represented clients in state and federal courts, arbitrations, class actions and alternative dispute procedures throughout the country.
"Doug brings a tremendous level of lead trial and litigation talent to our firm," said John Munich, who chairs Stinson Leonard Street's Business and Commercial Litigation I Division. "Like other litigators in our firm, he has established himself as a go-to attorney for clients needing experienced trial and appellate counsel. He joins a large team of our attorneys who have substantial first chair trial experience."
Stinson Leonard Street's Litigation Division consists of more than 180 trial attorneys who collectively have tried hundreds of disputes in jury and bench trials. The firm represents clients in state, federal, tribal and other courts and tribunals throughout the U.S. The firm's litigation attorneys also handle disputes outside of the courtroom, often resolving matters through investigations, pre-lawsuit negotiations and alternative dispute-resolution (ADR) procedures, such as arbitration and mediation.
Dalgleish is the eighth partner to join Stinson Leonard Street since Jan. 1, 2014, when Stinson Morrison Hecker and Leonard, Street and Deinard completed their merger. The combined firm has offices in 14 cities and more than 520 attorneys.
