The Dallas Morning News highlighted the importance of strategy when making a consumer complaint about bad service or a defective product. Gardere Partner Peter S. Vogel, chair of the Firm's Internet, eCommerce and Technology Industry Team, chimed in on the importance of not venting your frustrations online.

"People should only post things that are true and not call people liars and dishonest because it comes off badly," Mr. Vogel said. "You never know that somebody's not going to sue you for libel and then you end up having to spend a lot of time and energy defending yourself."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
