We know what it takes to grow your business, and we have expertise with business formation, mergers and acquisitions, outside general counsel services and other related business transactions.
Commercial Real Estate
We will work with you to meet the specific objectives of your transaction, including the acquisition, disposition, construction, development, financing, leasing and management of all property types.
We have significant experience in transactions involving ground leases, condominium regimes and tenants in common structures, as well as private offerings for commercial real estate developments. If you need assistance with the preparation of loan documents, we work with private and institutional lenders in real estate as well as other asset-backed loans.
Complex Commercial Litigation
We represent clients in the most important commercial litigation matters, in state and federal courts in Texas and throughout the United States and in arbitration. As skilled trial lawyers, we regularly try cases to verdict. Using creative problem solving, we will assist you in resolving commercial disputes outside of court when pre-trial resolution makes the most sense. We represent clients as plaintiffs and defendants, intentionally striving to remain broad and flexible to serve you best. Our areas of focus involve matters including:
Our employment practice includes litigation of discrimination and harassment claims, complex executive compensation matters, class and collective actions, and trade secret and unfair competition cases. This litigation experience informs our advice and counsel to clients covering a broad variety of employment issues such as day-to-day employment decisions, disability and leave management, and wage and hour compliance issues.
Our employment lawyers represent companies and individuals in lawsuits in state and federal courts and in federal, state, and local agency proceedings, and we provide advice to clients on issues arising from the complex web of workplace laws and regulations.
Along with our colleagues from other practice areas, we offer practical solutions to workplace issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective to help our clients meet their objectives.
Environmental & Regulatory
We have experience representing Texas’s mining, construction materials and agriculture industries in all areas of environmental law. We frequently represent clients with TCEQ matters, EPA Region 6 investigations and state court Solid Waste Disposal Act lawsuits.
We have the capability to respond real-time to industrial accidents, fires, spills or other major emissions events. We represent private real estate developers and entrepreneurs in Brownfield redevelopment investments.
Our family law lawyers are experienced trial attorneys who are committed to providing excellent legal representation with compassion and understanding to our clients in divorce, contested custody, and complex property division and valuation matters. It is our goal to amicably resolve family law matters expeditiously with minimum conflict and expense. However, when amicable resolution is not possible, we vigorously represent our clients in court and will take cases to trial when necessary.
Many family law matters involve complex business and real estate issues. Working together with our real estate, business transactions, estate and commercial litigation attorneys, we are able to handle the full-range of legal issues that clients may face in family law matters.
Our finance legal services include preparing and negotiating loan documents, syndications and private offerings.
