As the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country, the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is home to 20 Fortune 500 company headquarters while Dallas itself is home to over 250 corporate headquarters. The region is home to a high concentration of information technology-related companies, which join such thriving industry sectors as banking, commerce, telecommunications, computer technology, energy and transportation. Dallas serves as a convenient and centrally located business hub for Perkins Coie to advise and counsel international clients, particularly those based in Texas.

Areas of practice emphasized by our Dallas-based attorneys include real estate, bankruptcy, labor and employment, and commercial law, corporate and finance matters. These include real estate workouts, commercial lending, commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS) and financing, real estate development, business litigation, franchise and distribution, labor and employment litigation and counseling, energy, oil and gas, corporate formation and financing, securities, mergers and acquisitions, insurance coverage, structured finance and mortgage banking, technology transactions and complex electronic discovery issues. The firm’s India practice is also based in our Dallas office and is representative of the significant cross-border and international transactional work that attorneys in the office handle.

Perkins Coie lawyers are recognized as among the best in their respective fields by Chambers USA, D Magazine and Texas Monthly. As the office's expansion reflects the vibrant and growing Dallas market, we continue to strike the strategic balance between providing local perspectives with the experience and depth of an Am Law 50 firm.
