ABOUT THIS COMPANY:In the top ten
Jackson Walker was founded in Dallas in 1887 by two brothers, John and George Robertson. Early clients included the Dallas Times Herald and the Dallas County Gas Company (now known as TXU), along with numerous railroads and insurance companies. The firm changed its name to Jackson & Walker in 1988 and, shortly thereafter, dropped the ampersand. Jackson Walker joined the ranks of the state's biggest firms in 1990 when it merged with Dotson & Scofield -- for the first time, JW ranked among the 10 largest Texas-based law firms. JW is now firmly enmeshed as one of the oldest and largest firms in the region. With more than 300 attorneys, JW is the 10th-largest firm in Texas and the 153rd-largest firm in the country, according to the most recent American Lawyer rankings. Four of the firm's six offices rank in their respective city's top 10 largest firms: Austin (sixth-largest), Dallas (eighth), Fort Worth (tenth) and San Antonio (eighth).
