For the fifth consecutive year, firm co-founder and partner Paul J. Skiermont has been named among the top lawyers in the state with his inclusion in the 2021 edition of Texas Super Lawyers in the practice area of Intellectual Property.

The Super Lawyers listings are compiled using a multi-tiered research process based on nominations from other lawyers, independent research and additional evaluation by a blue-ribbon panel of attorneys in the same practice areas. No more than 5 percent of eligible attorneys are selected to the Texas list each year.

Mr. Skiermont maintains a national litigation practice, representing companies in disputes involving complex science and technology, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, telecommunications, aerospace, speech recognition and consumer electronics. During the past decade, the firm has developed a reputation for taking on some of the most challenging technology issues, while successfully litigating and explaining elaborate technical concepts before juries across the nation.

The complete listing of Texas Super Lawyers is published in the November issue of Texas Monthly and is also available at
