08 September 2014 News

Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is pleased to announce that 42 of the Firm's attorneys have been selected for the 2014 Texas Super Lawyers list. Each year, no more than 5 percent of lawyers in Texas are chosen for this honor.

"We congratulate the Firm's attorneys who have been recognized by Super Lawyers," says Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil. "These individuals are well-respected by their peers as well as our clients, and we are extremely proud of their accomplishments."

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The mission of Super Lawyers is to bring visibility to those attorneys who exhibit excellence in practice. The Texas Super Lawyers list will be included in the October 2014 publications of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers Magazine. Gardere will also be recognized in the 2014 Super Lawyers Business Edition, which will be published in November 2014 and distributed to top executives and in-house counsel nationwide.
