Commercial Litigation

Haynes and Boone’s public law attorneys have decades of commercial litigation experience.

More recently, our team has handled numerous large-scale, complex commercial litigation matters for and against public entities. On behalf of the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation, we defended a construction dispute involving the berms surrounding Reliant Stadium. The case, which was ultimately resolved in a six-week jury trial, was subject to an interlocutory appeal where we argued issues involving the waiver of sovereign immunity by asserting a compulsory counterclaim, the effect of “sue and be sued” language, and the “clear and unambiguous” requirement for waiving immunity from suit.
