Gardere is a leader.
One look at our practice areas, our roster of first-rate attorneys and history of successes and you can see our wide ranging expertise and leadership in each area of law we practice. But credentials are just the start. Our clients tell us that our Firm is known for traits such as excellence, competitiveness, integrity, spirit and tireless service.
The Firmís Dallas and Houston offices are ranked among the top 10 largest firms in their respective cities, and today, with more than 230 lawyers practicing law in more than 40 practice areas, Gardere remains one of the largest law firms in Texas.
Our Professional Development Program, Partnering For Success, is a vital and ongoing management function of the Firm. This cutting edge program includes components such as new associate orientation and training, mentoring, business development and management workshops, and monthly seminars or presentations relating to current practice area specific topics, ethics and personal development. We believe that by providing continuous training and support we are enabling our lawyers to constantly strive for excellence.
Gardere is also committed to maintaining our presence as a significant force in professional, charitable and civic affairs throughout our communities. We are dedicated to our participation in numerous pro bono programs. As such, our associates receive billable hour credit for a portion of the approved pro bono legal work they perform.
