Attorney Amy Arndt has been named managing partner of the Sioux Falls office of Ballard Spahr LLP.

The Philadelphia-based firm merged with Lindquist & Vennum on Jan. 1.

Arndt is one of 271 equity partners.

“Amy is a terrific lawyer known for her strategic, service-oriented approach,” firm chair Mark Stewart said. “She was a natural choice to lead this talented team of attorneys and staff as we extend Ballard’s national footprint.”

Arndt has more than 20 years of experience in securities law, and corporate finance and transactional matters. She advises business owners on issues involving operations, management succession, financing and restructuring. She also represents privately held companies in private placement offerings, mergers and acquisitions, asset sales and purchases, and corporate governance matters.

“Sioux Falls is a center for financial services, health care, agribusiness and technology, and our recent merger has significantly increased the range of services we can offer,” Arndt said. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues to grow the office and bring even greater value to our clients.”

Arndt has served as chair of the South Dakota Bar Association business law committee for the past six years.

As a member of Ballard Spahr’s expanded board, she will help develop and implement practice and policy at the 650-lawyer firm, which is nationally recognized as a top law firm for women. More than 25 percent of equity partners at Ballard Spahr are women, compared with the national average of 16 percent. Forty percent of the firm’s departments and 30 percent of its practice groups are led by women.

The American Lawyer has ranked Ballard Spahr sixth in the nation for its percentage of female equity partners, and it was recognized by Law360 as one of the top 10 U.S. law firms for women attorneys.
