About Beck Redden LLP
Beck Redden attorneys do not fear trial—in fact, they thrive in the courtroom. With more than 40 attorneys operating out of the firm’s office in Houston, Beck Redden has established itself as a Texas powerhouse and often appears in the top tier in national rankings.
Beck Redden was founded in 1992 by three Texan trial attorneys who had a vision to open a firm solely focused on litigation. Since the day it opened, the firm has remained true to that commitment to the courtroom and is now renowned for its dominance in trial and appellate litigation.
Litigation All the Way
Beck Redden attorneys are litigation champs. They take on cases of all sizes and matters, representing clients from individuals to Fortune 500 companies. The firm’s expertise extends beyond individual cases and into class actions and multidistrict litigation proceedings relating to securities, consumer warranty, breach of contract, insurance compliance and pricing, oil and gas, antitrust, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and ERISA issues.
Some of Beck Redden’s most high-profile clients have included ExxonMobil, Wells Fargo, and Dynegy. In perhaps one of the firm’s most prolific cases, Beck Redden secured a dismissal of all claims—including claims consolidated in a multidistrict litigation—against Cameron International Corporation in the multi-billion-dollar Deepwater Horizon litigation.
Beck Redden’s small group of lawyers has a big community impact. Attorneys firmwide are generous when it comes to offering pro bono services in the Texas community, including through organizations like Houston Volunteer Lawyers and Lone Star Legal Aid. Beck Redden lawyers also bring their generosity to the community in ways like working with local food banks, churches, and education facilities. Multiple individual attorneys also serve in prominent roles in the bar.
