Forty-four Gardere Lawyers Named To Texas Super Lawyers


Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is pleased to announce that 45 of its attorneys were named to the 2010 Texas Super Lawyers list –a distinction limited to just 5 percent of Texas lawyers.

Of those selected to the 2010 list, 26 have been included each of the eight years the list has been compiled.

The Texas Super Lawyers list will be published in the October 2010 issue of Texas Monthly, as well as Texas Super Lawyers magazine, published by Thomson Reuters, Legal Division. Texas Super Lawyers selections are based on peer nominations made by more than 70,000 attorneys from across the state. Super Lawyers' attorney-led research then evaluates the candidates and determines the final list.

Earlier this year, 21 Gardere attorneys were chosen to appear on the Texas Rising Stars list, a companion to Super Lawyers. Rising Stars selections are based on nominations by members of the Texas Super Lawyers list, and recipients are up-and-coming Texas attorneys who are 40 or younger and/or have been in practice for fewer than 10 years.

The Gardere attorneys named to this year's list were included based on their work in 21 practice areas: antitrust litigation, appellate, bankruptcy & creditor/debtor rights, business litigation, business/corporate, civil litigation defense, class action/mass torts, construction/surety, white-collar criminal defense, employment & labor, employment litigation/defense, environmental, estate planning & probate, family law, insurance coverage, intellectual property, intellectual property litigation, mergers & acquisitions, real estate, securities & corporate finance, and tax.

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.
