Dallas Principal Lew LeClair was recognized as “Appellate Lawyer of the Week” by Texas Lawyer for his work convincing the 5th Circuit to agree to vacate a motion to compel arbitration, which is a move the court is historically loath to do. Lew accomplished this when the court decided to allow his client to purse a multimillion-dollar price-fixing case against one of the nation’s largest dental equipment distributors before a federal jury in the Eastern District of Texas.  “At McKool, where I’ve been for [20] years, that’s our real signature, how to approach appeals and make sure you know any question the court will ask and which way to go with each answer,” Lew said. “And it worked. I was able to go in whatever direction the panel wanted to go.’’
