David Dawson in Texas Lawyer: Coming Off a Strong Year, Texas MPs Optimistic About 2020


Winstead PC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Dawson was quoted in Texas Lawyer about how the firm performed in 2019 and his prediction for what 2020 will bring. An excerpt is below.

“On the cusp of a new decade, Texas law firm leaders seem upbeat about what the next year, at least, will bring.

Looking at the industry as a whole, a new report from Citi Private Bank’s Law Firm Group, co-authored by Hildebrandt Consulting, found that 2019 was another strong year for the U.S. law firm industry and revenues should continue growing in 2020. The authors of that report also do not expect a recession in 2020.

With that in mind, Texas Lawyer asked a number of local managing partners: What is your forecast for 2020? What practices do you hope to grow during the year? And what will your firm do to outpace the competition in Texas?

David Dawson, Chairman and CEO of Winstead

“Winstead had a very productive 2019 across all practice groups. Based on work in the pipeline, we expect 2020 to also be strong, with real estate, real estate finance, banking and corporate activity leading the way as it has in past years.””

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
