Talmage Boston, Jay Brown Selected Among Nation’s Leading Lawyers

Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton partners Talmage Boston and Jay Brown have been selected among the 2024 Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America.

Mr. Boston was selected based on his Commercial Litigation practice. He has successfully represented clients in state and federal court lawsuits and arbitrations involving oil and gas, real estate, banking, intellectual property, and partnership disputes for more than 40 years. He has successfully tried many jury trials throughout Texas and prevailed in appellate courts all over the state including the Texas Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. A frequent speaker and prolific author, he is also a former chairman of the State Bar of Texas’ Litigation Section, and the Dallas Bar Association’s Business Litigation Section.

Recognized for his Insurance and Commercial Litigation work, Mr. Brown is a “go to” lawyer for complex, high exposure business disputes. He represents clients in litigation resulting from widespread catastrophes, complex contracts, fraud, insurance bad faith, deceptive trade practices, civil rights and major accidents. He has litigated supply and output contracts, take or pay, and refinery related disputes, and defended a wide spectrum of lawsuits stemming from traumatic oil field and petrochemical refinery accidents, derrick collapses, rotating equipment failures, welding/cutting, confined space events, fires, explosions, oilfield indemnity, and workplace shootings.

Lawdragon honors are based on peer nominations, third-party research and extensive editorial evaluation. Unlike most of its legal guides which feature top lawyers from specific practice areas, the exclusive Leading Lawyers list honors the top 500 attorneys nationwide across all practices.
