Haynes Boone Named a Powerhouse Firm by Law360

August 02, 2021

Law360 named Haynes and Boone, LLP a 2021 Texas Powerhouse, citing the firm’s investments in technology, its strong culture, and continued strategic growth amid the COVID-19 pandemic, among other recent successes.

Haynes Boone was one of five law firms chosen for the recognition.

Below is an excerpt of Law360’s profile of the firm:

Haynes and Boone, LLP continued to show strength amid the COVID-19 pandemic and an increasingly competitive legal market, reversing a $110 million fraud verdict against BBVA, reforming the death sentence of a pro bono client and leading clients through bankruptcies and transactions that boosted Texas' legal market during the pandemic, landing it a spot among Law360's 2021 Texas Powerhouses.

Taylor Wilson, managing partner of Haynes and Boone, said that despite the pandemic the firm continued to add resources to its "Big Four" practice areas: energy, technology, financial services and private equity.

"In the face of the pandemic we were able to keep our ship steady, and I think we really benefited from our significant investment in technology, which allowed our attorneys to adjust seamlessly into remote work arrangements, and that in turn allowed us to stay focused on our long-term plans," Wilson said.

Haynes and Boone litigator Anne Johnson helped convince Texas' Fifth District Court of Appeals in Dallas to overturn a $110 million fraud verdict against her client, BBVA.

Haynes and Boone hasn't seen encroachment on its litigation practice despite the surge in firms moving into town, Johnson said. The firm is still the largest Dallas-based firm with a deep litigation bench in the state.

"The fact that a lot of other national firms are moving into Texas, really just confirms what we've known all along, which is that this is a very hot legal market," Johnson said.
