Sayles Werbner Partners Named Texas Super Lawyers

Firm co-founder profiled in cover story on lawsuit against Arab Bank

DALLAS – Once again, four partners from Dallas’ Sayles Werbner have earned selections as Texas Super Lawyers. Named to the prestigious 2006 list are Richard Sayles, Mark Werbner, John Conway and Eric Pearson.

The listing of the state’s top lawyers appears in the October 2006 issue of Texas Monthly magazine and Texas Super Lawyers magazine, which is published by Law & Politics Media Inc. in conjunction with Texas Monthly.

Name partners Richard Sayles and Mark Werbner both received special recognition, being singled out as among the Top 100 attorneys in the state. This marks the fourth straight year for both to be included among the state’s elite.

Additionally Mr. Werbner appears in a cover story in Texas Super Lawyers magazine titled “Squeezing Terrorists’ Bankbooks,” highlighting his work in Terror Victims v. Arab Bank.

“We practice law to win cases, not awards,” says Mr. Sayles. “But to receive an accolade like this from our colleagues is truly an honor.”

Super Lawyers selections were based on nominations from more than 55,000 attorneys across Texas. Nominees then were screened by a blue-ribbon panel before final selections were made. Fewer than 5 percent of all Texas lawyers earn the Super Lawyers distinction.

“There is always a sense of pride when you receive any kind of recognition,” says Mr. Werbner. “But to know that other lawyers recognize the good work our firm does for clients is especially rewarding.”

Sayles Werbner represents Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and individual clients, and its high-profile cases have been featured in many of the nation’s leading business and legal publications. The National Law Journal has named Sayles Werbner as one of the top five law firms in the nation based on its success, and, in 2005, noted the firm’s victory in a bus accident claim as one of the year’s Top 100 Verdicts.

Sayles Werbner has an international reputation as a “go to” trial law firm in multifaceted business litigation, life-altering personal injury cases, product safety lawsuits and other areas of the law. More information about the firm can be found at www.swtriallaw.com.
