American Lawyer Selects Haynes Boone Among Top Litigation Firms in 2021

October 01, 2021

The American Lawyer named Haynes and Boone, LLP a finalist for 2021 Texas Regional Litigation Department of the Year.


The winner will be announced Dec. 2 at the American Lawyer Industry Awards in New York, celebrating what the publication deems “the most exceptional lawyers, law firms, legal departments and organizations in the country.”

“We are proud to be recognized as one of the top litigation firms in Texas,” said Haynes Boone Partner
Ben Mesches, co-chair of the Litigation Practice Group. “This honor comes at a time of major growth across the country for our litigation team, which has provided exceptional service to our clients throughout the pandemic. We look forward to continued growth and momentum in the years ahead.”

Haynes Boone’s Litigation team has been deeply involved in helping clients with claims arising out of the pandemic – from securing voluntary dismissal of consumer class action claims against a leading Texas food retailer to handling insurance recovery matters. And when Storm Uri ripped through Texas causing widespread damage in 2021, several of the firm's litigators helped co-found a task force to respond to urgent questions from clients whose businesses were severely impacted by the storm.


The team has expanded this year, including by building a U.S. Supreme Court Practice headed by Denver-based Partner Dan Geyser, who joined the firm in August. Dan is widely regarded as one of the nation’s premier Supreme Court and appellate lawyers. He has argued 11 Supreme Court cases in private practice and is set to argue his 12th Supreme Court case in November; in the past half-decade, only four other non-government lawyers nationwide have argued as many times before the Court.


Haynes Boone litigators routinely handle some of the most significant and high-profile cases, helping clients prevail on claims and fend off massive judgments while also establishing favorable legal precedent. The firm’s Texas litigators were recognized in the 2021 Chambers USA guide in such diverse litigation practices as antitrust, energy, insurance, labor and employment, first amendment, securities, oil and gas litigation, and white collar. Haynes Boone’s Appellate Practice Group was rated Band 1 in Texas in Chambers USA 2021.
