About TEXAS BUSINESS LITIGATION
With institutions seeking a “roadmap for reform” in the 21st century civil justice system, issues of costs and
length of time for resolution of matters and satisfaction with the overall process are at the forefront of the

the litigation process, ALM’s TEXAS BUSINESS LITIGATION brings together the inputs and experience of
legendary trial lawyers and specialists as they analyze a range of issues encountered in the litigation
process if forthcoming.
Now in its 4th Edition, the publication is a comprehensive handbook ideal for litigators and transactional
attorneys. Written by a stellar panel of veteran TX litigators, judges and arbitrators, TEXAS BUSINESS
LITIGATION allows the reader to focus research, save preparation time, field quick client questions, and
follow specific areas of law and procedure as they develop year to year. From ADR to appeals, learn from
the collective wisdom, experience and practical advice of these notable lawyer-authors.
