Winston & Strawn Adds Transactional Attorneys to Los Angeles Office


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Daniel Passage and Francisco Flores have joined Winston & Strawn’s corporate group in Los Angeles.

Passage joins the firm as partner of the firm’s structured transaction group, and Flores will serve as of counsel. Both left Bingham McCutchen to join the firm.

Eric Sagerman, managing partner of Winston & Strawn’s Los Angeles office, said in a press release:

“Dan is nationally recognized and his practice not only complements our firm’s existing national platform in structured finance, but also deepens the practice on the West Coast.”

Passage works on transactions involving the origination, financing, and securitization of novel asset classes, and he has handled offerings listed on European and Asian securities exchanges.

Flores handles structured financing transactions and cross-border transactions in Latin America.  He has worked on convertible debt offerings for domestic and foreign corporations.

Passage received his undergraduate’s degree from UC Irvine, and his law degree from Columbia. Prior to joining Bingham McCutchen, he was a partner at O’Melveny & Myers and an associate with now disbanded-Brown & Wood.

Flores graduated from Azusa Pacific University, and went on to receive his law degree from USC. He was an associate at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, before becoming counsel at O’Melveny & Myers.

In the past year, with these additions, Winston & Strawn has added seven transactional attorneys to its Los Angeles office. Last week, the MetNews reported that the firm had brought on Eva Davis as a partner to serve as chair of the firm’s West Coast Private Equity.
