I will do everything I can to assure a smooth transition and to contribute to the ongoing success of Spencer Fane."

Mr. Whalen holds degrees in Economics (BA), Business (MBA) and Law (JD).  He is a frequent speaker and writer on topics at the intersection of business and legal strategy.  Recognized by his peers as a global thought on technology and internet legal issues and cited by KC Business Magazine as the top choice for companies involved in intellectual property disputes, Mr. Whalen will continue to serve clients throughout the financial services and technology industries.
