DALLAS – Attorney Benjamin Stewart of Dallas-based litigation boutique Bailey Brauer PLLC has been selected to the 2017 Texas Rising Stars listing of the top young lawyers in the state.

Mr. Stewart represents clients in complex commercial and bankruptcy litigation in federal and state courts and assists companies with both internal and governmental investigations. This is his first year to be selected to the prestigious Texas Rising Stars list.

“Ben is an exceptional attorney who is very deserving of this recognition,” said Bailey Brauer co-founder Alex Brauer. “It is an indication of the respect he has earned throughout the legal community.”

Mr. Stewart’s practice includes work on behalf of companies and individuals facing litigation involving contractual disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, insurance coverage, officer/director liability, contested confirmation hearings, and estate valuation matters.

“Having the opportunity to watch Ben’s practice grow, I am impressed by his tireless work ethic and a dedication to the best interests of his clients,” said firm co-founder Clayton Bailey.

“Texas is home to some of the very best attorneys in the country, which makes me even prouder to be selected to a group as elite as Texas Rising Stars,” Mr. Stewart said.

Texas Rising Stars recognizes the state’s top attorneys who are 40 years or younger or who have been in practice for 10 years or less. Selection is based on peer nominations, independent research and review by a separate advisory group. Only 2.5 percent of eligible attorneys earn recognition each year.
