Haynes and Boone in The Texas Lawbook: The Battle of the Texas Bankruptcy Legal Advisors – A Statistical Analysis of the Firms and Lawyers


The Texas Lawbook included Haynes and Boone, LLP in an analysis of the law firms in Texas that have played the most active role in Chapter 11 restructurings filed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and downturn in the oil patch.

Here is an excerpt:

The Texas Lawbook identified six Texas-headquartered full-service law firms – Jackson Walker, Haynes and Boone, Munsch Hardt, Porter Hedges, Thompson & Knight and Vinson & Elkins – that are each involved in 20 or more complex bankruptcies.

Haynes and Boone lawyers in Texas are currently billing in 45 business bankruptcies – 29 of which are in the Northern or Southern Districts of Texas. The Dallas-based firm represents lenders in a dozen of the restructurings, including Fieldwood Energy, J.C. Penney, and Neiman Marcus. They are the lead debtor’s counsel for Diamondback Industries and Tuesday Morning, and co-debtor’s counsel with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in the Rosehill Partners restructuring.

Charles Beckham and Kelli Norfleet are the two Haynes and Boone lawyers who make the most appearances in the 216 bankruptcy cases reviewed by The Texas Lawbook.
