McKool Smith Attorneys Selected as 2007 Super Lawyers

October 1, 2007

Attorneys from the Dallas, Austin and Marshall, Texas, offices of McKool Smith have earned spots on the 2007 Texas Super Lawyers list, as determined by a statewide survey published in the October issue of Texas Monthly magazine.

Two attorneys from the firm received special recognition, with firm founder Mike McKool being selected as one of the Top 100 lawyers in Texas, and Samuel F. Baxter earning the designation as one of the Top 100 in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Following are the McKool Smith principals who appear on the prestigious 2007 Super Lawyers list:

·        Samuel F. Baxter, Dallas/Marshall

·        Douglas Cawley, Dallas

·        Lewis T. LeClair, Dallas

·        Robert M. Manley, Dallas

·        Mike McKool Jr., Dallas

·        Steven J. Pollinger, Austin

·        Theodore Stevenson III, Dallas

·        T. Gordon White, Austin

“We’ve always felt that the attorneys at our firm are among the best in Texas,” says Mr. McKool. “To have that belief validated by other attorneys is truly special. It means that the attorneys we work with, and even against, recognize the good work we do for our clients.”

To compile the Super Lawyers list, more than 70,000 attorneys from across the state were asked to nominate the top lawyers in Texas. A blue-ribbon panel of attorneys chosen by Super Lawyers editors assisted in the final selections, and less than 5 percent of Texas attorneys were named to the list.

The Super Lawyers list appears in the October 2007 issue of Texas Monthly magazine and in Texas Super Lawyers magazine, a publication co-produced by the publishers of Texas Monthly and Law & Politics Media Inc.

McKool Smith has more than 90 attorneys in Dallas, Austin, Marshall, Texas and Washington DC, handling commercial and intellectual property litigation for national and international clients. The firm is recognized as one of the premier litigation law firms in the United States, having earned significant courtroom victories for clients such as Electronic Data Systems, BearingPoint, Ericsson, Medtronic, Inc. and American Airlines.
