Firm Overview

The Gray Reed Promise

Our Purpose is You.

Our firm is built with our clients in mind. We develop a deep understanding of clients’ goals and objectives so we can anticipate future issues and opportunities and deliver highly personalized service. Through thick and thin, our clients can be confident having a team of experienced, business-minded attorneys on their side.

Relentless. Reliable. Real.

With an entrepreneurial spirit and tenacity, we do whatever it takes to meet the legal needs of our clients. As trusted advisors, our goal is to understand our client’s business strategies and industry trends. Our vast knowledge combined with a creative, pragmatic approach arms us to relentlessly protect our clients and their interests.

Feel at Home Here.

Our clients are part of the Gray Reed family, and we are committed to keeping it that way. We are here for our clients through the triumphs and challenges that arise during life and the life of their businesses. Their goals are our goals, their industry is our industry, and their legacy is our legacy.

By the numbers.

Numbers and history matter only as they serve as a foundation to better assist today’s clients.

Our office is the launch-point for our work with companies and individuals either located in or doing business in Texas. But our work for them often takes us away from home, across the nation, and around the world.

We are a full-service law firm with 15 organized practice groups including a full range of transactional and litigation services, tax, trusts and estates, employment law, family law, intellectual property and bankruptcy. We have strong representation in five industries including agriculture, construction, energy, healthcare and real estate.

We groom our lawyers to be subject-matter authorities in the law and masters of business trends, strategies and principles. There is no horizon issue that we aren’t watching and, in our signature areas, no legal, industry or business conversation that we aren’t a part of.

A good number of our lawyers are Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in areas of law that are important to our clients. And lawyers are licensed to practice law in 22 states of the U.S. As a member of Lawyers Associated Worldwide, Gray Reed can provide access to legal resources in over 75 countries across the globe.

Gray Reed has an 82 percent attorney retention rate, which means that our clients have consistency on their Gray Reed team – people who know them and have worked with them.
