Houston (May 29, 2007) — LAWFUEL – The Law Firm News Wire – H Texas Magazine recognized three attorneys from Texas law firm Winstead PC as ‘Houston’s Top Lawyers’ in its June 2007 issue. The annual listing recognizes attorneys in the Houston area for their outstanding performance and professional reputation in the legal industry. The attorneys named were Denis Clive Braham, Greg Erwin and Frederick J. Tuthill.
An attorney with Winstead since 1989, Braham was named Winstead’s new chairman and CEO at the beginning of the year. Braham’s Houston clients include the Houston Texans and Rice University. He led the legal team to help Bob McNair bring the NFL back to Houston and served on Houston’s Super Bowl Host Committee to win the bid to host Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004. He also assisted Pastor Joel Osteen to acquire the Compaq Center as the new home for Lakewood Church.
Erwin has over 30 years of experience as a real estate practitioner, and has consistently been proven to be the “go to” lawyer for sophisticated real estate deals. Clients Greg has assisted include New York Stock Exchange REITs and privately held development firms as well as wealthy individuals. He is known for his ability to get deals done, while always watching out for his clients’ best interests. Erwin also serves as Winstead’s lateral recruiting chair.
Tuthill is a shareholder in Winstead’s Corporate & Securities and Taxation, Employee Benefits & Private Business Practice Groups. With 30 years of experience, he assists private and public businesses with federal and state tax planning issues and tax controversies. In particular, Winstead clients rely on Tuthill’s considerable knowledge in planning and implementing tax sensitive business structures and transactions.
To select the honorees, the publishers of H Texas Magazine asked Houston area attorneys to nominate area attorneys based on whom they would seek counsel from in a variety of legal specialty areas.
Winstead is currently located at 919 Milam Street but according to Braham, the Winstead Houston Office will relocate to the JPMorgan Chase Tower located at 600 Travis Street this fall. “We’re excited about moving into this landmark building and establishing a dominant business hub for our clients,” he said.
