WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - King & Spalding announced today the addition of partner Scott A. Stengel, a specialist in bank regulatory, capital markets and restructuring matters, to the firm's capital transactions and real estate practice, in Washington, D.C.

"We are always on the lookout for exceptional lawyers who can help expand our capabilities," said Wick Sollers, managing partner of King & Spalding's Washington, D.C., office. "Scott's considerable bank regulatory and capital markets expertise, combined with his experience across a variety of transactional and litigation practices, will be invaluable assets to the firm and our more than 50 lending institutional clients. We are extremely pleased to bring Scott on board."

Stengel is expected to play a key role in advising King & Spalding's clients on a broad range of banking issues that arise across the firm's practices of capital transactions and real estate, corporate/mergers and acquisitions, finance, financial restructuring, and special matters and government investigations. He will also contribute to the firm's representation of financial institutions in congressional investigations, fund formations, distressed asset investments and international investment activities.

Stengel joins King & Spalding from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, where he was a partner. He
continues to play an active role in the securitization industry and in the development of a covered bond market in the United States, as a member of the steering committee for SIFMA's (Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association) U.S. Covered Bond Council. He has testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on bankruptcy and housing issues and before the U.S. Senate Banking Committee and the U.S. House Financial Services Committee on covered bonds and financial market issues.

Stengel received a J.D. degree, magna cum laude, from Notre Dame Law School and an undergraduate degree, with highest honors, from the University of Notre Dame.
