HOUSTON — Rusty Hardin is ranked as one of the top Texas lawyers in both commercial litigation and white-collar crime and government investigations in the 2018 edition of the prestigious Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business. He was also recognized as a top national trial lawyer.
It is rare for lawyers to be rated highly by Chambers USA in two such diverse categories as civil litigation and white-collar crime and government investigations. Rusty was ranked in Band 1, the highest level, in both categories. A prosecutor before he launched Rusty Hardin & Associates, LLP, Rusty has shown a unique talent for trying any type of case. He even famously excelled in a massive probate case.
Labeled “extraordinary” by Chambers, he is also listed as a “Recognized Practitioner” in the Nationwide, Litigation: Trial Lawyers category.
“I consider him to be the best trial lawyer in the state of Texas,” one interviewee told Chambers. Another source said: “If I were in Houston and had a lawsuit that I needed to win, he would be the person I would call. He is smart, hard-working, knows how to organize a team and has a charismatic personality.”
Chambers wrote that Rusty is “sought out to handle extremely complex commercial litigation and white-collar matters. He wins great acclaim for his trial skills.”
Published by London-based Chambers and Partners, Chambers USA is known worldwide for its thorough guides to the legal profession. Recognition is based on thousands of attorney and client interviews designed to identify law firms and lawyers who demonstrate the top technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by clients.
