Firm Overview 

Jackson Walker has more than 130 years of experience serving clients in key practices and industries throughout Texas, the United States, and internationally. The firm is nationally ranked by the US News ‘Best Law Firms’ in 27 practice areas with 9 attorneys recognized as "Lawyer of the Year", has 14 Chambers and Partners-ranked practices and 42 attorneys, and was recognized in the BTI ‘Client Service A-Team’ list in 2020 and numerous recent years.

Committed to Client Service: 

Jackson Walker attorneys don’t see clients as interchangeable. They take the time to understand their clients’ business goals, challenges and opportunities, and they tailor their legal services to what works best for each. That’s one reason Jackson Walker’s clients are so loyal. One-third of the firm’s legal work comes from clients who have been with the firm for ten or more years. They keep coming back because they trust in the quality of the work and they appreciate the commitment to individualized client service.

Delivering Value:  

Clients receive comprehensive services in a broad range of practice areas, and the firm’s reach extends around the globe. Jackson Walker attorneys have represented clients in more than 85 countries and territories, and the firm is a founding member of Globalaw, a worldwide network of law firms with offices throughout the US and in over 160 cities internationally.

According to BTI, ‘Corporate counsel rank Jackson Walker in the top 15% of all law firms for using technology in new ways to add value.

Because the firm has chosen to keep its offices in Texas, it has lower overhead costs than just about every firm its size or larger. In fact, both PricewaterhouseCoopers and Citi Research have cited Jackson Walker as a ‘Best Practice’ model in overhead cost structure compared to peers. The firm passes that value along to clients by keeping its rates competitive. Jackson Walker’s cost structure also means the firm attracts and retains top-notch talent, so clients get the benefit of top-tier legal expertise without breaking their budgets.

Providing Expertise: 

It’s been said that great lawyers are made by great clients. Jackson Walker knows its clients, knows their businesses and remembers every day what a privilege it is to help them achieve their business goals. Its attorneys also pride themselves on being the kind of lawyers clients enjoy working with. In fact, the firm has always been and remains today a very collegial place. Its longtime unofficial motto is: ‘We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.’

Jackson Walker’s attorneys believe that the service, value and expertise they provide for clients speak for themselves. And sometimes, their clients speak for them, as in these excerpts from client reviews:

‘First-rate service that was both strategic and cost effective…’ 

‘Jackson Walker lawyers are very efficient in how they perform and very attuned to the needs of the client.’

‘They know me better than I know myself.’ 

‘There was never a time they weren’t brilliantly prepared with every detail.’

‘I would use no one else.’ 

‘Truly interested in our business…’ 

‘An excellent combination of expertise, professionalism, and results…’
