As Jackson Walker looks to close out the first quarter of 2021, Managing Partner Wade Cooper spoke with Texas Lawyer about the Firm’s position following a tumultuous 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our success was a bunch of different things, and credit to being a firm that has a variety of practice areas, some of which are counter-cyclical,” Wade said. “In light of all of the challenges so many other parts of the economy faced, we feel very fortunate.”
