August 17, 2023 by

Brown Fox, a Tier 1 Best Law Firm two years in a row, is proud to announce that Brian Robison, Cort Thomas, and Stephen Key have been selected as 2024 Best Lawyers by Best Lawyers of America. Managing Partner Russ Brown shared, “Brian, Cort, and Stephen collectively represent what Brown Fox is about and each give an excellent glimpse of the level of service our clients can expect from Brown Fox. It’s an honor to practice with each of these incredible lawyers.”

Brian Robison again earned the rare distinction of 2024 Lawyer of the Year for Litigation – Antitrust in Dallas-Fort Worth. Only one attorney in each eligible practice area receives this distinguished honor.  Best Lawyers has recognized Mr. Robison as Lawyer of the Year three times, including 2020 and 2022. Mr. Robison said, “I am honored to be listed in Best Lawyers in America and to be named the Lawyer of the Year in DFW for Litigation-Antitrust. While still litigating antitrust cases, I have now added ADR to my practice. For the last 16 months, I have served as a mediator in a wide range of cases, and now that I am on the AAA’s list of Commercial Arbitrators, I have several active arbitrations going. I have thoroughly enjoyed serving as a mediator and arbitrator and will continue to grow that part of my practice.” Mr. Brown added, “The fact that Brian has been selected three separate times as ‘Lawyer of the Year’ shows that his peers consistently think he is among the best of the best.” Mr. Robison has also been honored as a Best Lawyer thirteen years in a row, in three categories: Commercial Litigation, Antitrust Law, and Litigation – Antitrust. Mr. Robison focuses his practice on commercial litigation, particularly antitrust disputes, and actively serves as a mediator and an arbitrator.

“The fact that Brian has been selected three separate times as ‘Lawyer of the Year’ shows that his peers consistently think he is among the best of the best.”

Cort Thomas received his third Best Lawyers honor in a row, again for Commercial Litigation. Mr. Thomas focuses his practice on business and commercial litigation, and regularly serves as a court-appointed receiver.

Stephen Key picked up his twelfth Best Lawyers honor, again for Labor Law – Management. In 2022, Mr. Key garnered the prestigious award of Lawyer of the Year, Labor Law – Management. Mr. Key focuses his practice on management-side labor & employment counseling and litigation.

Best Lawyers selections are based entirely upon peer reviews, with “Lawyers of the Year” selected based upon the highest overall feedback for a specific practice area on a geographic region.
