Gruber Elrod Johansen Hail Shank LLP has built a highly regarded reputation based on understanding the business needs of our clients when facing or pursuing litigation. By aligning those operational strategies with legal strategies we often gain greater efficiencies in preparing for trial and resolving disputes, both in the courtroom and at the bargaining table.
This approach also means that we have the flexibility and freedom to work with clients on various fee structures, including a mix of hourly, contingency and other creative arrangements. Our fundamental goal is to focus on results, sharing in the risk and rewards with our clients by maintaining a stake in the outcome. This philosophy formed the foundation of our firm in 2006, and we’ve found that our collective experience at larger firms continues to support this decision to practice law in a different way. Clients with pressing problems can get exactly what they need from us -- rapid response, sophisticated problem-solving skills, and a willingness to be as aggressive as the situation dictates.
We concentrate our practice on complex business litigation, and focus on every case as if going to trial. This has enabled us to handle a wide range of commercial cases involving securities, labor and employment, intellectual property, products liability and other claims for both defendants and plaintiffs. Our clients include leading companies—large and small—and individuals in industries as varied as financial services, private equity, real estate, manufacturing, professional services, energy, and retail.
With this success for our clients has come ongoing recognition for the firm and our individual attorneys. Each of our five name partners have achieved top verdicts in Texas state and federal courts and in arbitrations. Each is consistently recognized in the top tier of attorneys in Texas by their legal and business colleagues and in various publications. We’re also proud that the firm continues to attract talented lawyers as associates and partners—lawyers who also believe in focusing on the delivery of services around the specific and distinctive interests of each client.
