Less than 2.5 percent of Texas attorneys are chosen for the Rising Stars list, which will appear in the April 2014 issue of Texas Monthly and Texas Rising Stars magazines. The exclusive list is based on nominations from fellow lawyers and independent research that reviews lawyers’ abilities in 12 key categories. In addition to results achieved for clients, the categories also include court experience and professional activity. This is Mr. Brauer’s fifth consecutive appearance on the Texas Rising Stars list.

Mr. Brauer has recently obtained several successful outcomes for Bailey Brauer clients in partnership and business disputes, and regularly defends and prosecutes claims of fraud, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, conspiracy, theft of trade secrets, antitrust and RICO. He was also recently quoted, along with Bailey Brauer client Bath Fitter, in The Texas Lawbook on the successful use of alternative fee agreements in business litigation. Mr. Brauer is recognized on the 2014 Texas Rising Stars list based on his work in business litigation, general litigation and appellate law.

In addition to successfully litigating and trying cases in federal and state courts throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Nevada and Wisconsin, Mr. Brauer has an outstanding appellate track record representing clients before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and various Texas state intermediate appellate courts.
