Firm Announces New Managing Members

Jul 13, 2015 - News by

The firm is pleased to announce the election of Michael Herd, Eric Namee, and Edward Nazar as managing members.  They will jointly manage the firm’s day-to-day operations and strategic planning. 

Michael Herd has practiced in the Wichita community for over 30 years. He has been in the Firm’s corporate and real estate department since 1999 assisting clients with their business and transactional needs. Over the last 20 years, Herd has developed a particular practice emphasis in aviation transactions (domestic and international).

Eric Namee has been with the firm since its inception in 1987 and has been actively involved in its management. He has practiced in employee benefit matters for more than 29 years and represented clients before the IRS for more than 31 years. Namee is head of the firm’s tax, employee benefits and employment law group.

Edward Nazar joined Hinkle in January 2015. He and four other attorneys made up the law firm of Redmond & Nazar LLP, which was regionally known for their focus on bankruptcy, business litigation, creditor’s rights, and family law.

Herd, Namee, and Nazar follow Mitch Herren, David Rapp, and Dale Ward, who served as managing members for the last several years.  “We truly appreciate the work these three (Herren, Rapp, and Ward) have done as managing members,” Namee said. “The firm is moving towards growth and exciting change; we look forward to our tenure as managing members.”
