The team assembled by BoyarMiller and led by Chris Hanslik correctly identified the critical issues relevant to the dispute; determined the appropriate application of the law to support our position; protected our legal position throughout the case; and seamlessly executed the strategy for the case. BoyarMiller’s representation won a favorable judgment from the jury on all elements of the case. During the course of the litigation, all team members at BoyarMiller successfully argued before the court and substantially contributed to the prosecution of the case which demonstrated to us the depth of the talent at the firm. At the conclusion of the trial, Chris delivered the most compelling closing argument I could imagine.

After managing outside counsel for more than 10 years, I can say that Chris Hanslik is not only one of the finest litigators with whom I’ve worked, he’s also a great business partner – possessing the perfect balance of practical and passionate. He gives us the same amount of dedication and attention in all matters – large or small, simple or complex-while remaining cognizant of the company’s budget and best interests. Chris made it a point to know our business and our team, which makes him a great advocate both in and out of the courtroom.

I was referred to Chris Hanslik by a friend of mine, who was a partner at one of the larger law firms in Houston. My friend held him in high esteem and after working with Chris for a number of months, I understood why. Chris is one of those rare individuals who, though very detail-oriented, doesn’t lose sight of the forest for the trees. My case was a very difficult case. Chris was quickly able to dissect it and present it in a way that anyone could easily understand. To do this took thoroughness, insightfulness and finesse, and Chris demonstrated all of the above. During the process of the case, I found Chris to be a very bright and capable attorney, who exercised excellent judgment and never lost sight of reality. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

President and CEO,
BoyarMiller has been our legal partner (transaction and litigation) since the inception of Sunland Capital. My historical personal friendship with Chris Hanslik has flourished over the years into a much broader professional relationship . . each based on certain core values and a foundation of high integrity. Chris is always exceptionally responsive and has guided us through numerous complex legal matters. On the transaction support side, Gus Bourgeois has worked with us on every one of our acquisitions. Gus brings to our team a powerful combination of strong legal counsel coupled with a practical business perspective . . somewhat unusual in today’s legal community. Needless to say, we value our strong relationship with BoyarMiller quite highly.
I look for outside counsel who are not only skilled trial attorneys and effective mediators, but also have business savvy and instill a sense of trust. I have worked with BoyarMiller for over a year and they check all the boxes. As a manufacturing company with distribution around the world, we frequently face complex disputes and claims that potentially have significant impact to the company. Chris Hanslik and his excellent colleague, Andrew Pearce, have taken the time to fully understand our business as well as the industry in which we compete. I have found them to be nimble and able to devote the resources needed to get the job done in a timely fashion. They have been able to distill complex litigation to the essential issues and provided clarity of thought in their analysis of the merits of the cases and their potential impact on the company. It is this combination of trial skills and business acumen that separates them from other firms. I highly recommend the team at BoyarMiller.

It is hard to find a firm that understands business and provides timely legal counsel that is also fee sensitive. I have found that BoyarMiller has all three of these components. Led by Chris Hanslik, our team at BoyarMiller has demonstrated that they are not afraid of the big law firms and can represent us in any transaction or lawsuit, big or small. When it comes to matters in the courthouse, opposing counsels, be aware, Q’Max is in good hands here. Only with a firm like BoyarMiller supporting us in our transactional and litigation matters will we be able to take our company to the next level.
Vice President of Administration,
I choose to work with Chris Hanslik and his litigation team not only because they are extremely skilled in litigation, but because I know that Chris’ ethics, morals and devotion to quality service will make the experience (win or lose) as positive for our company as possible. I trust Chris – as Counsel, as a business leader and as a person. His advice is always rock solid.
Global Energy Services, Inc.
As a practicing trial lawyer for 13 years, it was difficult deciding which of the excellent Harris County trial lawyers to hire to represent my company in its first District Court dispute. However, Chris Hanslik was at the top of a short list of competent and exceptional lawyers that I entrusted with managing my company’s legal and litigation issues. Chris and his team were quick to grasp complex and intricate issues related to our case and have handled them with the utmost professionalism and care. Chris and his team at BoyarMiller have met and exceeded our expectations.
During a lengthy and difficult dispute, Chris Hanslik and Whitney Brieck from BoyarMiller were zealous advocates of the company, providing sound advice and assisting us in navigating a challenging path through the court and arbitration system. Their candid and accurate counsel enabled the company to make an important and correct ultimate decision even when there were pressures to move in a different direction. I will not hesitate to retain their and the firm’s services to handling future complex disputes.
