Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors (formerly Bickel & Brewer) is a law firm devoted exclusively to high-stakes
advocacy. Founded in 1984, the firm was formed with a singular goal: to serve
clients faced with the most complex and significant matters that involve
substantial financial or business exposure, cutting-edge legal issues or
significant policy questions.
Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors is
often described as among the most creative and successful commercial litigation
firms in the United States. The firm’s specialization in complex litigation is
not confined to particular areas of the law, but to the art of advocacy in
behalf of its clients. As such, the firm has gained national recognition for
its handling of cutting-edge cases in a wide variety of substantive fields.
According to The National Law Journal,
“Unlike many boutiques, the firm doesn’t hew to a particular niche.
The firm handles a mix of plaintiffs’ and defense-side commercial litigation
and arbitrations, shareholder and corporate-governance disputes, white-collar
defense work, intellectual property cases and regulatory and antitrust
litigation out of Dallas and a growing New York office.”
The firm's approach to client advocacy and case management is widely recognized as having
forever changed the manner in which commercial litigation is practiced.
Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors commissioned the development of one of the legal profession’s
most sophisticated, computer-based document information management systems. In
furtherance of that system, the firm is believed to be the first in
the nation to develop an offshore operation (in India) to cost-effectively
oversee the electronic handling of case-related documents. The firm was a
pioneer in the utilization of alternative fee arrangements and was among the
first law firms to establish a “mock courtroom” to assist with trial
preparation. Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors has also created an in-house Consulting Group,
Investigation Unit and Public Relations practice. All of these capabilities
work in concert to achieve the firm’s goal of effectively managing high-stakes
advocacy in all forums, including courts, arbitration centers, the regulatory
environment, the legislative arena, and the news media.
professional staff at Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors is comprised of lawyers and
consultants from a variety of disciplines, including finance, accounting,
technology, economics and public relations. This blended approach to case management
allows the consultants to do more than analyze business and economic issues at
the early stages of a case. Because the firm’s consultants are part of the
professional team involved in the advocacy, they are able to influence and
improve its tactical, strategic, and substantive development throughout the
entire advocacy process. The end result of this collaboration is a dynamic and
creative approach to dispute resolution and problem solving.
The firm’s senior
partners are widely recognized as among the best in their field in Dallas, New
York, and across the United States. For example, firm partners William A. Brewer
III and James S. Renard were recently recognized in “Best
Lawyers in America.". In 2012, Brewer was named the Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” for
Dallas in the area of Bet-the-Company Litigation.
