Kelly Hart & Hallman LLP was formed in 1979 by Dee J. Kelly and several attorneys from a prominent international law firm having diverse, successful and highly regarded litigation, commercial, corporate and securities, and real estate practices. As the firm grew, it proved attractive to other experienced and driven attorneys, who expanded the firm's areas of practice into banking and finance, energy law, state and federal tax matters, among others. In tandem with the business expansion and diversity of Kelly Hart’s clients, the firm has grown to over 160 attorneys practicing in more than 20 substantive areas of the law. Kelly Hart has opened offices in Austin, Midland, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans, and has been involved in groundbreaking litigation and headline-grabbing commercial transactions, locally, nationally, and internationally.
Throughout Kelly Hart’s forty-year history, the firm has partnered with a broad array of clients to achieve unparalleled success in a number of exciting, sophisticated business and legal matters. From the first days of Kelly Hart, forward-thinking individuals and businesses located in Fort Worth, including the entrepreneurial Bass family, Justin Brands, Anne W. Marion and the Burnett Companies, American Airlines, Pier 1, and BNSF Railway have afforded the opportunity to have a world-class practice. As the firm has grown, the client list has grown to include additional Fortune 500 companies, individuals, investor groups, and governmental entities around Texas and the nation. Kelly Hart offers each of its clients a commitment to excellent legal representation and outstanding client service and provides competent, efficient, and cost-effective services, enabling clients to anticipate, avoid and otherwise resolve legal issues and conflicts at the lowest possible cost.
