Chairman’s Letter


It was our honor to sponsor the Association of Corporate Counsel Houston Chapter’s 19th Annual Ethics Seminar & Golf/Spa Event. Our team also provided an interactive workshop on the legal and ethical challenges facing employers in an online world. It is a very timely topic that is important to our clients throughout the employment life cycle. Let us know if we can help you with issues like screening applicants, policies to monitor emails or social media use during work and other concerns during the many stages of employment. It may be time to update company policies to include best practices for the digital age.


Employment issues are the key topic these days and our team has been busy developing some intriguing and very timely Viewpoints. One is about the state’s limits regarding the enforceability of employment agreements that can restrain trade, and the other addresses non disclosure agreements and the #metoo movement. Take a few minutes to read them both as employment topics continue to take center stage among the business concerns of our clients.

Strategic Plan

Strategy and vision is what drives the success of our firm. To that end, on Saturday, February 24 we held an all-attorney meeting to review and reassess our strategic initiatives in the areas of Relationship Building, Reputation Development, Recruiting, Efficiencies, and People & Culture. Obtaining the collective input from attorneys at all levels of our organization promotes an environment for creative and diverse ideas to be shared. It is through sessions like these that we are able to align behind a strategic plan to propel our firm into a successful future.

Spring Break

This is the time of year for renewal. Whether or not a Spring break vacation is in your plans, I hope you take a much-needed respite to recharge and reflect on both personal and business goals and adjust your path if necessary to stay on course.

We are honored to be your trusted business partners.

My Best,

Chris Hanslik
