HOUSTON – Bracewell LLP’s nationally recognized litigation practice has been named the 2017 “Large Law Firm Litigation Department of the Year” by Texas Lawyer.
This honor, and the related profile to be published in the August edition of Texas Lawyer, continues a strong year of accolades for the firm’s litigation practice. In July 2016, Law360 named Bracewell to the inaugural list of “Litigation Powerhouses” identifying it as one of the top-50 litigation practices in the nation. The publication further highlighted the firm as one of an “elite group” of only five firms in the nation with fewer than 200 litigation lawyers included on its list of “litigation heavyweights.” In May of this year, Chambers USA called the team a “fast-growing litigation bench with a reputation for creative approaches to disputes both before and in trial for a range of major corporate clients.” In addition, Legal 500 United States named Bracewell to its list of nationally ranked disputes practices, noting that the team is “particularly well-versed in defending oil and gas industry clients in commercial and royalty disputes.”
“We have a great thing going,” said Stephen B. Crain, the firm-wide chair of Bracewell’s litigation practice. “These recognitions are the result of the concerted efforts of our entire team to provide excellent advocacy for our clients.”
Bracewell has one of the nation’s leading litigation practices handling almost every type of commercial dispute, while earning the respect of both judges and adversaries. The team’s reputation has been built on winning all types and sizes of matters as well as clients’ toughest and most significant litigation.
