Labor and Employment Practice Named Texas Lawyer Litigation Department of the Year


The Haynes and Boone, LLP Labor and Employment Practice Group has been honored as the Litigation Department of the Year in the Labor and Employment category by Texas Lawyer magazine for its outstanding lawyers with “big victories and important cases that demonstrate why clients choose them when litigation is on the table.”

“It is a tremendous honor to be ranked so highly in such a highly competitive marketplace for labor and employment expertise,” said Houston Partner Matt Deffebach, practice group chair. “Our lawyers are constantly striving for excellence, so it is gratifying when respected third parties agree that we are providing special service to our clients, coast to coast."

A special magazine supplement will profile the practice along with eight other category winners Aug. 19, and an award ceremony will be held Oct. 17 to honor all winners.

The awards, the first of their kind issued by Texas Lawyer, were divided into two groups - one for the top department in general litigation and one for the top specialty-litigation practice groups. The award was open to any law firm in Texas or litigation groups led by Texas attorneys. The specialty-litigation practice groups were: intellectual property, mass tort, insurance, energy, labor and employment, and immigration.

“The work submitted was done in Texas and throughout the rest of the country and abroad,” the Texas Lawyer editors said. “The key, though, was that it was led by Texas lawyers, showcasing the talented litigators in the Lone Star State. We had difficult decisions to make in each category as we chose our finalists, as it was a truly competitive field.”
