Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is proud to announce that seven partners from the firm’s Dallas and Houston offices are included among the top employment and employee benefits attorneys in the country in the most recent Super Lawyers Corporate Counsel Edition.
Dallas partners Ronald M. Gaswirth, Douglas D. Haloftis and Carrie B. Hoffman, and partners Neil G. Martin and Rachel Powitzky Steely of the firm’s Houston office are among the attorneys recognized for their employment and labor work.
Dallas partner Stuart E. Blaugrund is featured for his defense work for clients in employment litigation. Fellow Dallas partner Tom Hoffman earned selection to the list based on his employee benefits and ERISA work.
“We have built a reputation as a firm that companies turn to when they are faced with important legal matters,” says Gardere Managing Partner Stephen Good. “To have nearly half of our employment partners earn recognition among the top lawyers in the country is further proof that our clients can feel confident that we will always provide the best representation possible.”
Super Lawyers Corporate Counsel Edition is provided to more than 25,000 CEOs and in-house counsel at America’s leading private and publicly held companies. The publication highlights the top business attorneys around the country who previously earned Super Lawyers honors in their home states.
Texas Super Lawyers selections are based on peer nominations made by more than 70,000 attorneys from across the state, with the final selections made by a blue-ribbon panel of lawyers chosen by the Texas Super Lawyers editors. Fewer than 5 percent of the attorneys nominated are chosen for this honor each year.
