Gateway to Texas

Austin is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States and has experienced explosive growth during recent years. From technology to state government to higher education, Austin is where the state’s diverse, interconnected entrepreneurial spirit shines brightest.

With more than 100 lawyers in Austin, we’ve grown into the city’s largest law firm and have a solid understanding of the things that matter most to clients, including real estate, private equity, technology, environmental, health care, wealth planning and banking, to name a few.

“Jackson Walker is an absolute premier law firm that represents some of the most significant businesses, large and small, in our city — and in the nation. It’s also a deeply rooted fixture at the Texas Capitol and a stellar corporate citizen in our community.”

– Will Wynn, former Austin mayor

Perhaps it’s also because we do more than just represent clients. As longtime residents of the world’s Live Music Capital, we’re involved in the Central Texas community like few others. From business interests to cultural institutions, we know that supporting the place where we live is the best way to truly go local.

Our investment in Austin also extends far beyond the business community.  We are passionate about our city and for generations have been heavily involved as community leaders, serving as board members for many outstanding civic and charitable organizations. Our legacy of community service focuses on helping make Austin a better place to live and work. We do this through donation of our time, knowledge and economic support to a wide variety of organizations including:

  • Austin Parks Foundation
  • Austin Symphony
  • Boy Scouts of America Capital Area Council
  • Boys & Girls Club of the Austin Area
  • Capital Area Food Bank
  • CARITAS
  • CREW
  • Colorado River Foundation
  • Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce
  • Greater Austin Crime Commission
  • HAAM – Health Alliance for Austin Musicians
  • Junior Achievement of Central Texas Lifeworks
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Opportunity Austin
  • RECA
  • Texas Lyceum
  • The Salvation Army
  • The Seton Fund
  • Travis County Women’s Lawyers Foundation
  • Waller Creek Conservancy
  • Young Men’s Business League
  • ZACH Theatre

With our long and significant experience with the Texas Legislature, Texas regulatory agencies, and the Supreme Court of Texas, our attorneys are well-positioned to help companies seeking to relocate to Texas or expand operations in the Southwest region.
