DALLAS, July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of Dallas' top boutique law firms are merging to better serve their clients in high-stakes business disputes, employment law litigation and counseling, business restructuring and general counsel services. The July 1 launch of Loewinsohn Flegle Deary Simon LLP will result in a dynamic new platform for sophisticated legal consumers, replacing the law firms Loewinsohn Flegle Deary LLP and Simon, Ray & Winikka LLP.
"Our lawyers are at the top of their game, representing clients in crucial areas impacting their businesses," says noted trial attorney and name partner Alan S. Loewinsohn.

Fellow accomplished trial and bankruptcy attorney and name partner Craig F. Simon says the merger creates a level of expertise uncommon at many boutique firms.
"There are very few, if any, firms of our size that can provide the broad and deep knowledge and track record in the courtroom and through negotiation that we bring to the table," says Mr. Simon. "From business litigation to employment law to bankruptcy and business restructuring, our team is home to attorneys who are consistently ranked by their peers among the best in the state and the entire nation."
