McKool Smith is pleased to announce that four of the firm’s principals have been selected for inclusion in the 2013-2014 edition of the Lawdragon 500 listing of the “Leading Lawyers in America.” The firm’s honorees include:
- Mike McKool, Commercial and Intellectual Property Litigation
- Samuel F. Baxter, Commercial and Intellectual Property Litigation
- Douglas A. Cawley, Intellectual Property Litigation
- Gayle Klein, Commercial Litigation
The Lawdragon 500 covers all practice areas and geographic regions, and it includes lawyers from private practices of all sizes, businesses, governments, law schools and public interest organizations. Selections are based in part on submissions from law firms and other organizations, as well as votes through an online form, though the staff’s own editorial research is the most important factor in the selection process.
With more than 185 trial lawyers across offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Marshall, New York, Silicon Valley, and Washington, DC, McKool Smith has established a reputation as one of America’s leading trial firms. Over the past eight years, the firm has secured eight nine-figure jury verdicts, as well as seven eight-figure jury verdicts. The firm has also won more National Law Journal and VerdictSearch "Top 100 Verdicts" over the last five years than any other law firm in the country. Courtroom successes like these have earned McKool Smith critical acclaim and helped the firm become what The Wall Street Journal describes as “one of the biggest law firm success stories of the past decade.” McKool Smith represents leading clients in complex commercial litigation, intellectual property, bankruptcy, and white collar defense matters.
