DALLAS – The Dallas-based trial, transaction and technology law firm Davis Munck, P.C., has combined with Butrus Khoshbin Wilson Vogt, LLP, a litigation firm focused on large-scale commercial disputes.
The new technology boutique, Davis Munck Butrus, P.C., will have offices in Dallas, Texas and Charlotte, N.C. Under the new moniker, the firm will handle intellectual property procurement, management, licensing and litigation, as well as all phases of complex commercial litigation and business transactions. Davis Munck Butrus is now home to 30 lawyers, including 11 who hold engineering degrees. These attorneys are highly prized among businesses with technology-related legal issues, in patent cases and other matters.
“This transaction accelerates the strategy to position our firm as the premier technology-focused law firm,” says co-founder William Munck. “At the same time, our technical expertise and broad service offerings provide added capabilities to the current clients of Butrus Khoshbin Wilson Vogt. The added ‘bandwidth’ in our litigation section provides the firm with an even greater capability to provide top-notch legal representation in cases involving complex litigation.”
“It will also give all of us access to the resources and expertise you find in a larger firm,” says co-founder John Butrus. “The key is to maintain the speed and flexibility of a small firm, which all our clients have come to expect. I’m confident we’ll continue to do that well.”
More than one-third of the attorneys at Davis Munck Butrus have been named to lists of top lawyers in Texas, as chosen by their legal peers and published in Texas Monthly magazine. Previously, Davis Munck had been recognized as ranking among the top four intellectual property law practices in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Chambers Publishing also recognizes Davis Munck as a preeminent technology law firm.
“I am personally familiar with the courtroom skills that the new lawyers have brought to our firm,” says co-founder Jim Davis. “These highly-experienced litigators will enable us to provide our brand of responsive, high-quality representation to an even broader base of clients, including both technology companies and other clients that require seasoned trial attorneys to handle any type of high-stakes litigation. This merger cements our status as one of the top tier litigation firms in the state of Texas.”
