Bailey Brauer co-founder lauded as ‘legal innovator’

DALLAS – Dallas trial and appellate attorney Clayton Bailey, co-founder of the litigation boutique Bailey Brauer PLLC, is one of 23 attorneys from across the country to be selected to The National Law Journal’s Elite Boutique Trailblazers for 2017.

Mr. Bailey is the only Texas-based attorney selected for this honor, which recognizes legal innovators who are changing the boutique law firm landscape. The Elite Boutique Trailblazers supplement is included in the September issue of the National Law Journal and can be found online at

“When Alex Brauer and I opened this firm, we came from Big Law and wanted to be able to offer clients that same level of representation, but in a much more nimble, responsive fashion,” says Mr. Bailey, who explains in the National Law Journal profile that although the firm intends to expand, he and Alex intend to “keep the size of the firm limited. Once you get beyond a certain size, you can become inefficient. And we want to stay very efficient.”

Founded in 2013, Bailey Brauer has quickly grown to be among the most respected firms in the country, earning multiple individual and firm recognitions from Benchmark Litigation, BTI Consulting Group, Texas Super Lawyers and D Magazine.

Most recently, Mr. Bailey was selected to the 2018 edition of The Best Lawyers in America in recognition of his appellate practice. The legal profession’s oldest peer-review publication, Best Lawyers is widely considered the top guide to U.S. lawyers, with selection involving a rigorous peer-review survey that includes millions of confidential evaluations by other lawyers.
