Charles Haag Joins Dallas Office of Winston & Strawn
Charles Haag has joined Winston & Strawn LLP’s Transactions Department as a partner in Dallas. Haag is a capital markets and securities attorney who joins Winston from Jones Day.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Charlie to the team as we continue to build on the firm’s momentum and strategic growth,” said Winston Chairman Tom Fitzgerald. “He is a widely-recognized and respected capital markets lawyer in the Dallas area who will enable us to continue raising the bar as we advise our clients on their most critical and complex transactions.”
Inn a release, the firm said Haag has more than two decades of experience counseling companies and financial institutions in a wide variety of securities offerings and capital market transactions, including venture capital, IPOs, high yield and investment-grade debt, convertible securities, tender offers, spin-offs, reorganizations, and M&A/takeovers, and also advises on corporate governance, fiduciary duties, SEC reporting obligations, and public market communications. In addition, he has been active in the REIT space, a Winston focus in Dallas and at the firm generally.
In February 2017, Winston opened a Dallas office, the firm’s second in Texas, with the addition of 21 partners from eight different firms.
“As the opening of Winston’s Dallas office approaches its one-year anniversary, we are fortunate to have maintained the momentum we have enjoyed since last February as we continue to attract top quality talent to the office and the Firm,” said Bryan Goolsby, the firm’s Dallas office managing partner. “Charlie’s addition not only provides us an acknowledged top tier capital markets partner, but his REIT expertise also favorably augments our national REIT practice.”
Haag’s experience spans financial services, hedge fund and private equity, power, technology, retail and consumer, REITs, construction, and metals and mining, the firm said.
“The mark Winston has made in Dallas and the broader Texas legal market, in a remarkably short time frame, has caught everyone’s attention,” Haag notes. “I look forward to working with this dynamic team and leveraging Winston’s exceptional platform to expand my practice and help grow Winston’s client base in Texas.”
