Bryan Dumesnil provides Bracewell’s clients with the intense dedication needed when facing complex litigation challenges. Although most cases are resolved outside the courtroom, a trial lawyer must be willing and able to try a case in order to achieve the best results for the client. Bryan knows this, and that is why he approaches every case as if it will be tried. By doing so, Bryan is prepared to zealously protect his clients and their interests if a negotiated resolution is not possible.

Bryan represents commercial clients in diverse civil litigation matters, including contractual disputes, business torts, energy-related litigation, environmental litigation, and securities and derivative litigation. He also represents financial institutions and financial services industry clients in complex litigation matters such as consumer class actions, priority disputes, syndication and participation agreements, and traditional lender liability claims. Finally, Bryan represents litigation and liquidation trustees in both civil district and bankruptcy courts to maximize the recovery for unsecured creditors through the prosecution of fraudulent transfer claims, preference claims, and director and officer breach of fiduciary duty claims.

In addition to his client responsibilities, Bryan serves as a member of the firm’s Management Committee.
