Rob Hoffman is a highly sought-after trial lawyer, helping clients in major exposure lawsuits around the U.S. A senior in-house counsel at a publicly traded company said, "I had the pleasure of working with Rob on a complex commercial matter involving multi-jurisdictional issues and international parties. As in-house litigation counsel for a large publicly traded company, I work with many lawyers but rarely encounter attorneys who excel both at high level strategy and court room mastery. Rob is a clear exception."
Rob represents clients across the United States in all aspects of complex litigation, including contract breach, fraud, malpractice, construction, insurance coverage, bad faith claims and class action suits. Rob looks at each case as a collection of puzzle pieces, with the fervent confidence that there’s always a way for the pieces to successfully come together in his clients' behavior. The proof: Rob has won virtually every case he’s handled over the last decade, whether by a favorable jury verdict, dispositive motion, or settlement for a few pennies on the dollar.
Rob has served as General Counsel of The General Counsel Forum, an association consisting of approximately 700 general counsel and managing counsel, for the past 15 years. He is also a member of the Forum’s Board of Directors and its Executive Committee.
In 2013, 2014 and 2015, Rob was acknowledged by The Best Lawyers in America in the area of Commercial Litigation. He was also recognized as one of the Top 15 Corporate Defenders in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 2010 by the Dallas Business Journal. Furthermore, D Magazine named Rob one of The Best Lawyers in Dallas. His talent as a commercial litigator has earned Rob recognition in Texas Super Lawyers each year since its inception in 2003, and has earned him recognition in Super Lawyers in the separate Corporate Counsel edition.
The Dallas Morning News included Rob’s business-related advice columns each week for several years, and he has authored and presented many legal articles, including a series regarding legal ethics for practitioners that appeared in Texas Lawyer.
