Firm attorneys selected among state’s top business litigators 

DALLAS – Three attorneys from Bailey Brauer PLLC are recognized in the 2022 edition of Texas Super Lawyers. Firm co-founders Clayton Bailey and Alex Brauer, along with partner Ben Stewart are named among the state’s top business litigation attorneys in the prestigious legal guide.  

Selections are based upon peer nominations, followed by extensive independent research and evaluations by Super Lawyers, which is owned by Thomson Reuters. No more than 5 percent of each state’s eligible attorneys are chosen each year for recognition, with business litigation among the most competitive practice areas.  

“Our primary focus is squarely on one thing – securing the results our clients want and deserve,” says Mr. Brauer. “We always appreciate recognition for that work, particularly when it comes from our peers.” 

The 2022 selection is the 12th for Mr. Bailey. A nationally known trial and appellate attorney, he represents clients in matters involving contract disputes, business torts, RICO, employment law, trade secrets, deceptive trade practices, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, antitrust, unfair business practices, and the Packers and Stockyards Act.  

Mr. Brauer represents clients facing allegations of fraud or deceptive practices in commercial transactions, breaches of fiduciary duties, and litigation relating to non-compete agreements. He also assists clients with disputes involving the sales and acquisitions of businesses. This is his sixth Super Lawyers selection, following six years on the companion Rising Stars list, an honor reserved for the state’s top up-and-coming attorneys.  

Mr. Stewart represents clients in federal and state courts in matters involving contractual disputes, breaches of fiduciary duties, insurance coverage, officer/director liability, and other complex litigation. He also serves as a mediator and assists companies with both internal and governmental investigations. This is his second year to make Super Lawyers. He was previously recognized four times by Rising Stars.  

Earlier this year, Messrs. Bailey, Brauer, and Stewart also earned recognition by The Best Lawyers in America for their commercial litigation practices. Additionally, their work has earned professional honors from Chambers USA, BTI Consulting, D Magazine, Texas Lawyer, Benchmark Litigation, the National Trial Lawyers, and Lawdragon.  

The full 2022 Super Lawyers listing appears in the October issue of Texas Monthly and in Super Lawyers magazine, and can be found online at
