Maynard Cooper Expands National Footprint to Dallas

Maynard Cooper & Gale has expanded its national geographic footprint to Texas with the addition of a Dallas office and real estate attorneys Matt Hudnall, Karen Cowden, and Allan Katz.

“We are excited to continue our strategic growth into top-tier, high-opportunity markets with the opening of an office in Dallas — the 6th largest legal market in the country — by bringing on a talented team of real estate attorneys who are leaders in their market,” said Jeff Grantham, managing shareholder of the firm. “Matt and his team are a great professional and cultural fit with our firm — respected, top attorneys in their field who live our core values of client-centered teamwork.”

Maynard Cooper’s Dallas expansion aligns with the firm’s strategic priorities and positive growth trajectory, further establishing Maynard Cooper as a nationally recognized law firm with more than 275 attorneys across 9 offices.  The firm’s presence in Dallas will serve as the latest top-tier business market into which Maynard Cooper has expanded over the past five years, joining San Francisco, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.
