Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is pleased to announce that 42 of the Firm's attorneys have been selected for the 2014 Texas Super Lawyers list. Each year, no more than 5 percent of lawyers in Texas are chosen for this honor.
"We congratulate the Firm's attorneys who have been recognized by Super Lawyers," says Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil. "These individuals are well-respected by their peers as well as our clients, and we are extremely proud of their accomplishments."
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made 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 mission of Super Lawyers is to bring visibility to those attorneys who exhibit excellence in practice. The Texas Super Lawyers list will be included in the October 2014 publications of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers Magazine. Gardere will also be recognized in the 2014 Super Lawyers Business Edition, which will be published in November 2014 and distributed to top executives and in-house counsel nationwide.

The publications contained in this site do not constitute legal advice. Legal advice can only be given with knowledge of the client's specific facts. By putting these publications on our website we do not intend to create a lawyer-client relationship with the user. Materials may not reflect the most current legal developments, verdicts or settlements. This information should in no way be taken as an indication of future results.
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.
