National law firm Polsinelli Shughart welcomes corporate law attorney David A. Shipley to the firm’s Dallas office. He joins a national team of corporate lawyers who practice collaboratively across the country on complicated merger and acquisitions in health care and other industries. Shipley’s corporate law practice focuses on M & A for health care and energy industries as well as private equity firms and financial institutions.

“Our firm is at the forefront of deal-making not only in Dallas but nationally,” said General Corporate Practice Group Chair Jon Henderson, who practices in Dallas with Shipley. “We look forward to working with David as we anticipate what our clients’ need and build our corporate capabilities in Dallas.”

Polsinelli Shughart's Corporate Law group consists of nearly 50 attorneys coast to coast representing thousands of businesses throughout the United States and abroad. Shipley will add value with experience in corporate transactions and securities and regulatory representation of many types of clients, such as oil and gas companies, health care entities, commercial banks, holding companies, thrifts and other financial institutions. Shipley has spent the last few years of his practice gaining valuable experience in the banking arena through representation of various types of financial institutions in M&A and securities transactions.

“I was looking for a firm with depth in a wide array of corporate matters with an opportunity to diversify my growing practice,” Shipley said. “The firm’s ongoing growth in recent years had attracted my attention, and when I met the leadership I was excited about the culture and everything that is happening at Polsinelli.”

Shipley earned his law degree with honors from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law in 2007 and his B.S. degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2003. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the Dallas Bar Association and the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers where he serves as a co-chair of the Lawyers Promoting Education committee. He also serves as a member of the Board of Management of the YMCA at White Rock in Dallas.
