Clients comprising a wide variety of industries and privately-held corporations turn to Fred, including technology, health care, manufacturing, energy and natural resources, oil and gas, financial institutions, hospitality venues, restaurants, hotels, bars, liquor sales and retailers.

Clients appreciate Fred’s demeanor, candor and comprehensive grasp of Gardere’s resources. Fred often serves as a gatekeeper, calling on colleagues to support a client’s unique needs, whether transactional, administrative or government affairs.

In addition to his general commercial litigation experience, Fred is a recognized employment law attorney working in discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful discharge litigation. He also reviews and negotiates employment contracts, represents employers before administrative agencies, and offers day-to-day advice to officers, managers and general counsel about personnel issues.

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.
