Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors (formerly Bickel & Brewer) is a law firm devoted exclusively to high-stakes advocacy. Founded in 1984, the firm was formed with a singular goal: to serve clients faced with the most complex and significant matters that involve substantial financial or business exposure, cutting-edge legal issues or significant policy questions.
Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors is often described as among the most creative and successful commercial litigation firms in the United States. The firm’s specialization in complex litigation is not confined to particular areas of the law, but to the art of advocacy in behalf of its clients. As such, the firm has gained national recognition for its handling of cutting-edge cases in a wide variety of substantive fields. According to The National Law Journal, “Unlike many boutiques, the firm doesn’t hew to a particular niche. The firm handles a mix of plaintiffs’ and defense-side commercial litigation and arbitrations, shareholder and corporate-governance disputes, white-collar defense work, intellectual property cases and regulatory and antitrust litigation out of Dallas and a growing New York office.”
The firm's approach to client advocacy and case management is widely recognized as having forever changed the manner in which commercial litigation is practiced.
Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors commissioned the development of one of the legal profession’s most sophisticated, computer-based document information management systems. In furtherance of that system, the firm is believed to be the first in the nation to develop an offshore operation (in India) to cost-effectively oversee the electronic handling of case-related documents. The firm was a pioneer in the utilization of alternative fee arrangements and was among the first law firms to establish a “mock courtroom” to assist with trial preparation. Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors has also created an in-house Consulting Group, Investigation Unit and Public Relations practice. All of these capabilities work in concert to achieve the firm’s goal of effectively managing high-stakes advocacy in all forums, including courts, arbitration centers, the regulatory environment, the legislative arena, and the news media.
Accordingly, the professional staff at Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors is comprised of lawyers and consultants from a variety of disciplines, including finance, accounting, technology, economics and public relations. This blended approach to case management allows the consultants to do more than analyze business and economic issues at the early stages of a case. Because the firm’s consultants are part of the professional team involved in the advocacy, they are able to influence and improve its tactical, strategic, and substantive development throughout the entire advocacy process. The end result of this collaboration is a dynamic and creative approach to dispute resolution and problem solving.
The firm’s senior partners are widely recognized as among the best in their field in Dallas, New York, and across the United States.
