Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher's Dallas office offers a local presence and the resources of an international law firm to represent clients on their most important and sensitive matters, including complex commercial litigation, antitrust, intellectual property, M&A, labor and employment, and tax. 

Gibson Dunn was one of the first U.S. law firms to establish a permanent Texas location, opening a Dallas office in the early 1980s.  The addition of an array of prominent partners since 2010 has significantly strengthened the Dallas office and exemplifies Gibson Dunn's long-term commitment to Texas. 

Drawing on Gibson Dunn's renowned capabilities, our Dallas-based lawyers function as leaders and integral members of many of our practice groups and have deep expertise in many industries, including energy, retail, health care, transportation, financial services, media and technology. 

We possess one of the most sophisticated and effective litigation practices in Texas.  Our trial lawyers handle a broad spectrum of contested cases both in-state and across the United States, including antitrust, intellectual property, class actions, securities, and information technology and data privacy.  Highly sophisticated clients consistently turn to us to prosecute and defend their high-profile and high-stakes litigation matters.   

Gibson Dunn has assembled one of the strongest appellate teams in Texas, led by former Texas Solicitor General James C. Ho.  Our Texas-based appellate lawyers have briefed, argued and won high-profile, high-stakes constitutional controversies and complex business disputes in the U.S. Supreme Court, the Texas Supreme Court, and federal and state courts of appeals nationwide.   

Our Dallas transactional lawyers advise public and private companies in M&A, capital markets, structured finance, debt restructuring, joint ventures, intellectual property licensing and general business law.  As trusted business counselors, we recognize that each enterprise is unique and tailor our services to fit the needs of the particular client.  

Our lawyers are among the most highly regarded in Texas and possess U.S.-wide reputations.  They are deeply skilled in representing issuers and underwriters in public offerings and private placements, as well as buyers, sellers, investment banks, strategic partners and lenders in all aspects of complex M&A activities.  Gibson Dunn Dallas is also home to Ambassador Ron Kirk, the 16th U. S. Trade Representative and a member of President Obama's Cabinet, serving as the president's principal trade adviser, negotiator and spokesperson on trade issues.
