Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman & Leonard, P.A. (Cole Schotz) is pleased to announce the opening of its newest office in Dallas. Member James W. Walker will lead the office, which will focus on litigation services for local and national clients doing business in Texas.

“The North Texas market has seen rapid growth and this office opening is a response to our clients’ need for a litigation capacity throughout the state,” said Mr. Walker. “Cole Schotz offers an incredibly strong bankruptcy capacity in this market through its Fort Worth office, and litigation support is a natural complement.”

Mr. Walker has built a well-established commercial litigation practice out of Dallas, successfully trying cases in U.S. District and Appellate Courts for more than twenty-five years. He joined the Fort Worth office of Cole Schotz in late 2013, setting in motion a plan to open a Dallas office built around his existing practice. The Dallas office marks the firm’s sixth nationwide, joining Cole Schotz’ existing offices in Hackensack, N.J.; New York City; Wilmington, Del.; Baltimore, Md.; and Fort Worth, Texas.

“The Dallas office will expand our offering not only to our Texas-based clients, but also to our established clients on the northeastern seaboard with business interests in the state,” said Leo Leyva, co-chair of the Cole Schotz litigation department. “As a firm, Cole Schotz strives to offer comprehensive legal support to our clients nationwide, and this latest move expands our offering to meet needs expressed by our clients.”

“Jim is a talented litigator who has a deep understanding of the courts and the skillset to consistently obtain favorable results on behalf of his clients,” said Michael D. Warner, head of the firm’s Fort Worth office. “He has been an asset to the firm since day one and will bolster our service to our clients in Texas and nationwide.”

The Dallas office is located in the beautiful uptown Chateau Plaza, which is anchored by NexBank.
