A Firm Foundation

Since our founding in 1887, Jackson Walker has played a vital role in the growth and development of Texas business. Our attorneys have represented some of the most influential companies in the state in key industries that have shaped the course of Texas history, including railroads, oil and gas exploration, the media, and healthcare. Today, we remain firmly rooted in Texas while serving clients around the world.

The JW story began with two brothers, John and George Robertson, who brought their legal knowledge to Dallas. Over the past three decades, the Firm has expanded to six offices and has joined forces along the way with notable firms, which has strengthened our ability to meet our clients’ needs.

While committed to the best client service, Jackson Walker is actively involved in the Texas community, contributing to a positive firm culture through programs like Jackson Walker Women and focusing on Diversity & Inclusion.
