DALLAS — Accomplished trial lawyer Lewis T. LeClair of McKool Smith, PC, once again has earned a spot among North Texas’ top business defense attorneys. Mr. LeClair is one of 15 attorneys profiled in a special section of the Dallas Business Journal published June 13, 2008.
In the story titled “The Defenders,” the newspaper’s editorial staff interviewed general counsels, judges and other attorneys across North Texas to determine the leading corporate defenders. Mr. LeClair, a principal at McKool Smith, also was featured on the inaugural “Defenders” listing in 2006.
“The other attorneys on this list are indeed among the best Dallas has to offer, and it is humbling to be in such prestigious company,” says Mr. LeClair. “It is a great honor to know that leaders in the business and legal communities think enough of my work to name me to this list for a second time.”
Mr. LeClair is a veteran trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, focusing on commercial and intellectual property litigation on both the plaintiff and defense side. He is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and routinely is recognized on top lawyer listings in such publications as Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA, Lawdragon and Texas Monthly magazine.
