DALLAS – Trial attorneys Richard A. “Dick” Sayles and Mark. S. Werbner of Dallas’ Sayles Werbner once again are being honored among the Best Lawyers in Dallas by their peers in the legal community and the publishers of D Magazine.
The Best Lawyers in Dallas 2015 listing is available online here. The annual guide to the city’s top attorneys is based on nominations submitted by lawyers from throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area, in addition to an editorial review conducted by D Magazine’s editors and a handpicked panel of local legal leaders.
Sayles earned a spot on the exclusive listing based on his work in business litigation and serious personal injury claims. He has been selected as one of the city’s top lawyers for five years in a row, and seven times overall. Werbner also earned his fifth consecutive selection and seventh overall for his representation of clients in business litigation and white-collar defense cases.
Sayles, Werbner and fellow firm attorneys have compiled an impressive track record of substantial verdicts and take-nothing defense wins for clients for decades. The firm recently won a U.S. Supreme Court ruling for client Commil USA LLC against software giant Cisco Systems Inc. in one of the most significant patent infringement claims to reach the nation’s highest court in years. The firm earned the Supreme Court win in May after presenting oral arguments earlier this year.
Sayles Werbner currently represents a group of terrorism victims seeking financial damages against Arab Bank for providing material support to terrorists who conducted attacks on U.S. citizens abroad. The firm’s 2014 win in the initial liability trial was upheld earlier this year by a New York federal judge.
In addition to the Best Lawyers in Dallas rankings, both Sayles and Werbner previously have been recognized as Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Texas Chapters of the American Board of Trial Advocates (TEX-ABOTA). They also have earned additional professional honors from such publications as The National Law Journal, Texas Lawyer, Texas Monthly, Chambers USA, Texas Super Lawyers, and many others.
