Jackson Walker is pleased to congratulate Corporate & Securities partner Byron F. Egan for being honored with the Texas Lawyer Lifetime Achievement Award for impacting the legal profession in Texas.
In a recent profile by Texas Lawyer, Byron provided insights about the ever-evolving legal industry, including what has changed, where it has remained the same, and how young attorneys can achieve success.
“Listen to your clients and colleagues,” Byron advises young attorneys. “Recognize that the law is a demanding mistress and be prepared to spend the time needed to be excellent.”
On September 19, 2018, Byron was recognized at the 2018 Professional Excellence Awards ceremony at the Belo Mansion in Dallas. More information about this award can be found on the Texas Lawyer website.
