Attorney Spotlight: Dan Swetnam Named Best Lawyers® 2017 “Lawyer of the Year” in Columbus in Litigation - Bankruptcy
Ice Miller partner Dan Swetnam was named Best Lawyers® 2017 “Lawyer of the Year” in Columbus in Litigation – Bankruptcy. Dan focuses his practice on business restructuring and creditors’ rights. He represents both debtors and creditors in bankruptcy and workout matters and has litigated plan confirmation issues, contract disputes, valuation issues, lease disputes, preference claims, motions for relief from stay and numerous other bankruptcy issues.
We asked Dan: What is the most rewarding thing about your legal practice?
“Three things. First, helping clients achieve their goals. In many circumstances, that can be accomplished short of litigation. In other circumstances, litigation is required. In either event, when the client is pleased with the ultimate outcome, that is one of the most rewarding aspects of my practice.
“Second, the wide range of substantive issues has been fascinating. In bankruptcy proceedings, property rights are defined by state law and the Bankruptcy Code, in some important areas, alters those rights. As a result, and as a result of my involvement in other cases, I have dealt with matters ranging from real estate, tax, health care, securities, finance, retail, corporate governance, UCC and even to probate related issues. The opportunity to constantly learn about new areas is fascinating.
“Finally, I have represented a wide range of great clients over my 34 years of practice. Some are by their nature single engagement clients. Others have been clients for close to three decades. In those situations where a client may need counsel in more than one matter, it brings a great deal of personal satisfaction when a client continues to contact me with legal issues.”
