Baron & Budd, P.C.

Thomas Sims, manager of Baron and Budd’s Austin branch, specializes in cases aimed at the nation’s most notorious polluters and negligent pharmaceutical companies.


Sims was lead counsel in negotiating one of the landmark air pollution cases in California history, and he served as trial counsel in a groundbreaking Tucson case involving groundwater contamination. Sims’ work on the Tucson case earned him national recognition.


Sims and the attorneys at Baron and Budd don’t only litigate complex environmental cases, however. The firm has a history of protecting what’s right for victims all over the nation. Established more than 35 years ago to fight for those exposed to asbestos, Baron and Budd has since expanded its reach to handle diverse litigation including whistleblower suits, overtime pay violations, consumer fraud cases and pursuing those who manufacture faulty products.


In 2011, Baron & Budd settled a case with the maker of a toxic homebuilding product known as Chinese drywall. The settlement will provide relief for thousands of homeowners along the Gulf coast affected by the dangerous product.


Throughout the years, Baron and Budd attorneys have received numerous awards including Public Justice’s Trial Lawyer of the Year and several awards from the American Association for Justice. The National Law Journal has named Baron and Budd as one of the nations premier plaintiff’s firms.
Baron & Budd hasn’t forgotten that serving people is at the heart of our success. The firm has provided charitable support for the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, the International Mesothelioma Program, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization and the Lung Cancer Alliance.
