When situations arise that can only be settled in the courtroom, our seasoned litigators are ready to diligently fight to defend your rights.


Our deep and unmatched bench of trial attorneys can manage litigation of any complexity in state and federal courts in Texas and throughout the country. Additionally, we provide counsel on risk management and litigation avoidance, including alternative means of dispute resolution such as arbitration and mediation.

When litigation becomes necessary, Mayer clients benefit from insights gleaned through our in-house trial consulting services, which allow us to better understand juror attitudes, craft compelling arguments and enhance your appeal in the courtroom.

Avoid Unnecessary Risk

Our litigation team also works closely with other divisions in our firm to help you avoid costly litigation. For example, we can draft appropriate contractual provisions to address issues, and assess the likelihood or probable outcome of litigation. We also work with you to develop, prepare and implement policies and procedures to lessen the impact of potential litigation, and review practices and procedures for problem areas that may increase your exposure.
