Attorney Profile

With two decades of experience as a litigator, Chris Hanslik's practice has spanned the full spectrum of commercial and business litigation, including contracts, business torts, securities and corporate governance, oil and gas, lender liability, trade secrets, non-compete agreements and other employment-related disputes.

Recognizing that the last place most business clients want to be is in the courtroom, Chris strives to develop creative, practical, and value-driven solutions to complex problems and disputes from the outset. However, as a trial lawyer, he provides the skills necessary for success in the courtroom. Chris's courtroom experience ranges from state and federal court trials to arguments before the Supreme Court of Texas and all points in between. In the relentless pursuit of his client's best interest, Chris keeps one important value in mind — integrity.

From time to time, Chris contributes articles to Texas Lawyer, Law 360 and The Houston Business Journal. He has served as an adjunct professor at South Texas College of Law teaching advocacy. He has also lectured to in-house legal departments regarding aspects of the attorney/client privilege and other ethical considerations as well as Internet privacy policies and e-Discovery.
