DALLAS – LAWFUEL – Press Release Service – Attorney Eric Pinker, a founding partner in Dallas’ Lynn Tillotson & Pinker, LLP, has earned a spot among the “The Defenders,” the inaugural listing of the top business defense attorneys in North Texas as reported in the Dallas Business Journal.
Mr. Pinker is one of 15 area attorneys recognized by the newspaper in a June 9 special section highlighting the lawyers that companies turn to in high-stakes defense litigation. To compile the list, Dallas Business Journal reporters interviewed dozens of general counsel, judges and attorneys from the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
“Every successful business eventually becomes a defendant in a lawsuit at one time or another, and it’s my job to limit the pain caused by that experience. Over the years, with the help of my fellow partners, I feel like we’ve accomplished that goal,” Mr. Pinker says. “It is extremely gratifying to know that the work I do for my clients every day has been recognized by other lawyers in such a respected publication. It’s my hope to represent my clients in a manner that will keep me on this list for years to come.”
Recognition is nothing new for Mr. Pinker. He previously has been named one of the Ten Rising Stars by Texas Lawyer; one of Dallas’ Best Lawyers Under 40 by D Magazine; and a Texas Super Lawyer by Texas Monthly.
Mr. Pinker represents clients in a broad range of complex commercial disputes in trial and appellate courts throughout the country. He has defended clients against claims valued at more than $100 million, and has represented clients who have recovered more than $120 million.
As a firm, Lynn Tillotson & Pinker has been recognized twice by The National Law Journal for obtaining the Defense Win of the Year. In 2002, the firm was honored for its successful defense of Visa International in an Internet defamation case. In 1998, firm attorneys were recognized for the nation’s top defense win in a qui tam case.
