(DALLAS) Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP announced today that Super Lawyers named Michael J. Chiusano and Wade A. Glover to its 2018 Texas Rising Stars list. Associates Chiusano and Glover are part of a diverse team of corporate and litigation attorneys that recently launched the firm's Dallas office.

Chiusano focuses his practice on mergers-and-acquisitions litigation and general complex commercial litigation, including litigation arising from closely held business disputes and tortious-interference, misappropriation-of-trade-secret, and fiduciary-duty claims.

Glover represents private equity firms and privately held businesses in a variety of transactions, including leveraged buyouts, and mergers and acquisitions. He also provides general corporate counseling to public and private companies, private equity funds and their portfolio companies, advising on corporate governance issues and commercial contracts.

"We are thrilled to have on our team talented young lawyers whose skills attract the attention of industry watchers in the US and beyond," said Mark S. Solomon, managing partner of Katten's Dallas office, who is widely recognized as one of the top dealmakers and corporate attorneys in North Texas.

In February, Katten expanded its presence in Texas with a group of seven new partners based in Dallas where many of its clients do business. With the opening of that office, Katten draws on its premier national practices in the areas of finance, financial services, private equity, real estate, corporate and litigation in order to provide clients with the support needed to do business in North Texas.

The new Dallas team joins the firm's industry-leading Environmental and Workplace Safety practice in the state.
