Dylan F. Henry is an experienced associate in Montgomery McCracken’s Litigation Department. He focuses his practice on business litigation, and he has represented clients in a variety of commercial disputes across a wide range of issues including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and fraudulent transfers, piercing the corporate veil and successor liability, partnership dissolution, professional malpractice, negligence and products liability, insurance defense, and employment practices. He also advises clients in their efforts to comply with their legal obligations and to avoid the pitfalls of litigation altogether.

Dylan also counsels individuals, school systems, and organizations on catastrophic sports injury matters, the proper management of sport-related concussions and other sport-related injuries, and traumatic brain injury (TBI) matters. He frequently presents and has authored articles on these legal issues and how these individuals and institutions can minimize their risk of legal liability for sport-related injuries, and defend against lawsuits arising out of sport-related events.

Dylan is also a member of the firm’s Institutional Response Practice Group, which conducts Title IX investigations and advises institutions in responding to sex- and gender-based harassment and misconduct, and adjudicating student, employee, and management disputes.

Prior to joining Montgomery McCracken, Dylan was an associate at a regional law firm.
