Nineteen Gardere Attorneys Named to 2015 Texas Rising Stars List


Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is pleased to announce that 19 of the Firm's attorneys have been selected to the 2015 Texas Rising Stars list. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state are chosen to receive this exclusive honor.

Rising Stars recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 years of age or younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less. The annual selections are made by the research team at Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

"This recognition represents the outstanding work these attorneys perform on behalf of our clients, and it is gratifying to know that their peers hold their work in such high regard," says Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil. "This is a well-deserved honor for this talented group, and we look forward to their future accomplishments."

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.


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.
