The Fort Worth office was established in 2004 to serve our clients in Tarrant County and the surrounding areas. These areas have been experiencing explosive growth over the past few years, and the prediction is that this trend will continue. This area is well known as a major center for industry, technology, energy, distribution and transportation. The office’s lawyers have deep roots in the legal and business community and serve the needs of our Fort Worth clients, representing and advising them on a variety of matters including corporate finance, private equity, securities regulation and labor and employment.
The office’s corporate transactions and finance practice focuses on investment funds formation, as well as private equity partnerships and joint ventures. Our experience ranges from representing small start-ups to billion dollar investors and entities. We advise lenders and borrowers on commercial transactions, including secured and unsecured lending and fund loan facilities, asset-based lending, syndicated loans, securitization, and debtor-in-possession financing.
The Fort Worth office also advises clients on investment advisor and other securities regulatory matters. We further advise fund managers and advisors on matters relating to Dodd-Frank.
Our labor and employment practice is balanced between client counseling and litigation. Our lawyers counsel employers on all aspects of the employment relationship, including managing employees, investigating internal discrimination and harassment complaints, workforce planning, and complying with state and federal anti-discrimination laws and other employment-related statutes. We represent employers in complex litigation and administrative proceedings involving discrimination, harassment, breach of contract, covenants not to compete and employee theft and trade secrets issues. The firm is also proactive in advising clients on compliance programs, agreements, and dispute resolution processes that help prevent claims and disputes from arising.
