Jul 16, 2018

(DALLAS)  Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C. (Munsch Hardt) is pleased to announce it has joined forces with McDole Williams PC, to enhance services and capabilities to clients, effective August 1, 2018. The addition of the two shareholders and two senior attorneys will strengthen Munsch Hardt’s growing commercial litigation and IP practices, particularly in patent and trademark litigation.

“We are looking forward to the expertise and skills the attorneys from McDole Williams will bring to the Firm, especially as we continue expanding our growth in Texas,” said Phil C. Appenzeller, Jr., CEO of Munsch Hardt. “We recognize that the members joining us are just as dedicated to the quality of legal service their clients receive as we have always been, and we know they will each make an impact on the Firm.”

Munsch Hardt offers a full-service, commercial legal platform. With the addition of the McDole Williams team, Munsch Hardt’s commercial and IP litigation practices will be significantly enhanced. The group brings significant trial experience to Munsch Hardt’s robust commercial litigation practice. Additionally, McDole Williams adds depth to Munsch Hardt’s IP practice, which is currently comprised of five attorneys who represent Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies across multiple disciplines. As the practice looks to continue expansion, the breadth of industries and matters tried by the McDole Williams team will only further this mission and allow the Firm to offer a broader variety of expertise to clients in need of IP litigation counsel.

“Munsch Hardt is a highly regarded law firm in Texas and we are excited for the opportunities that joining their team will allow our attorneys,” said Keith McDole of McDole Williams. “Our team is skilled not only in practice, but in delivering cost-effective and quality results for our clients – making Munsch Hardt the perfect fit for us as we embark on this new journey.”

This combination comes on the heels of shareholder Craig Harris joining the ranks of Munsch Hardt’s Litigation and Labor & Employment sections on June 1, 2018 – bringing the headcount of recent new hires to a total of five. Those coming over from McDole Williams include shareholders Keith McDole and Steven Williams, as well as senior attorneys Zac Duffy and Winston Huff. All five new members join Munsch Hardt’s Dallas office.
