For the fifth consecutive year, Benchmark Litigation, published by Legal Media Group and Euromoney names Gibbs & Bruns a “Highly Recommended” litigation firm in Texas.
Gibbs and Bruns clients say ‘The firm is recognized as a true trial firm with a highly competent appellate and legal research capability,’ and ‘I believe they have the best plaintiff’s lawyer reputation in Texas for serious business disputes.’
Nine Gibbs & Bruns partners are recognized in the 2012 directory:
While Kathy Patrick epitomizes the bulldog litigator image, multiple peers who worked alongside her also felt she was the smartest lawyer involved in the case. ‘She beat the tar out of us in a case,” says a competitor, ‘We settled.’
Grant Harvey took the case [against Trevor Rees-Jones] and a judge handed down a $196 million judgment, citing fraud and breach of fiduciary duty.
Barrett Reasoner draws praise for his approach. ’Barrett Reasoner is professional, respectful of opponents, but aggressive and hones in on the issues very quickly,’ says a competitor.
Benchmark Litigation also published its inaugural Benchmark Plaintiff which focuses on leading plaintiff litigation firms and attorneys. Gibbs & Bruns is named on the short-list of “Highly Recommended” plaintiff’s firms. In addition, Kathy Patrick is named a Plaintiff’s Litigation Star.
