Greg Brassfield

Greg is a first-chair trial lawyer who regularly appears in federal and state courts on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants in all phases of complex and “bet-the-business” commercial litigation. His practice encompasses the spectrum of commercial litigation and cross-border disputes, including business partnership disputes, breaches of contract, theft of trade secrets, as well as breaches of fiduciary duty and fraud. National firms regularly look to Greg as their local counsel for their Texas matters. This year, Lawdragon recognized Greg on its “500 Leading Litigators in America,” as well as its “500 X - The Next Generation” lists.

Greg received his Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University and earned his J.D. at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law, where he was also a Garner Law Scholar. He later completed a one-year clerkship with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas, and a summer-term clerkship for Judge Charlene Honeywell of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida before kicking off his legal career at a nationally recognized boutique litigation firm.

An avid traveler, Greg has lived abroad in China and Brazil and speaks fluent Portuguese.
