Prominent San Antonio business attorneys William McDonough, Peter Broderick and James McDonough have joined Jackson Walker as partners in the San Antonio office, as well as associate Art Cavazos.

The trio of partners was drawn to Jackson Walker as the leading “Texas-focused” firm, with a commitment to providing full-service representation to its clients in each of the state’s major economic markets, including San Antonio.

“We continue to attract an outstanding next generation of lawyers and are delighted to have Jimmy, Pete and Billy join our team,” said Stephanie Chandler, leader of the firm’s San Antonio Corporate and Securities group. “We expect to see substantial opportunities in the San Antonio market in the coming years, and their extraordinary experience in a wide range of sophisticated matters will be vital in meeting the needs of the business community here. Their addition further expands our already strong San Antonio footprint.”

Pete Broderick counsels both private and municipal clients with real estate development, economic development, and land use planning projects. He also has an extensive commercial real estate practice representing landlords and tenants of commercial properties of all kinds, with particular emphasis on retail and office leasing.

Jimmy McDonough counsels public and private companies and financial institutions in a broad array of corporate finance transactions. He also regularly represents clients in all types of commercial real estate transactions, including both developed and undeveloped site acquisitions and dispositions, portfolio convenience store (with fuel) acquisitions and dispositions, mortgage lending transactions and commercial office and retail leasing transactions.

Billy McDonough advises a diverse range of businesses engaged in mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, and joint ventures. He represents sellers, purchasers and targets in a number of industries, including the medical device, downstream energy, multi-unit fuel retail, and financial institution industries. He also advises private and public clients in general corporate matters.

Art Cavazos, Jr., a senior level associate, focuses on businesses transactions in various industries including oil and gas, finance, construction, healthcare, agriculture, insurance services and telecommunications.

San Antonio office managing partner Scott Rose stated that “the addition of such outstanding professionals as Billy, Pete and Jimmy, all with deep roots in our community, adds to the vibrant fabric of the office and further evidences Jackson Walker’s strong commitment to San Antonio.”

These four additions bring the growth of the San Antonio office to seven new lawyers since the beginning of 2017. Steve Jacobs, Steve Seidel, and Noah Speck joined the firm in San Antonio earlier this year. The firm also landed six IP litigators in Houston in March and added three lawyers in Austin in April.

“We are proud of our success in attracting so many talented individuals to our firm,” said firm-wide managing partner Wade Cooper. “They are making our great Texas firm even better.”
