About Figari & Davenport

Figari + Davenport is one of the original and premier commercial litigation boutiques in Dallas, Texas since

1986
Best Law Firm 2018

Founded in 1986 by a group of trial lawyers, the firm remains dedicated to providing superior service and obtaining the best possible results for our clients. These core values remain constant as our firm continues to evolve with new practice areas, a wide spectrum of complex and cutting edge cases, and a strong roster of experienced trial lawyers.

A Focus on  Excellence

Our attorneys have handled complex civil litigation in Texas and across the United States. Our litigation practice includes general business litigation, insurance litigation, securities litigation and arbitration, labor and employment, real estate litigation, municipal litigation, and class actions. We know that winning a lawsuit in any of these areas requires strategy, experience, drive, and the willingness to go beyond expectations. Using small teams of lawyers, we embrace this challenge. By being fully prepared at each stage of a case, we believe we can stay a step ahead of the other side and achieve superior results for our clients, whether through trial, summary disposition, or settlement.

Our peers and a variety of independent organizations throughout the state and country have recognized the excellence of our attorneys. Over the years, Figari + Davenport lawyers repeatedly have been named in the Best Lawyers in America for business litigation, insurance litigation, and labor and employment litigation, and identified as Texas Super Lawyers and among the Best Lawyers in Dallas.

A Focus on  Results

Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, smaller regional and entrepreneurial companies, as well as individuals. We represent clients in many industries, including banks and other financial institutions, technology companies, major insurance companies, municipalities, manufacturing concerns, automakers, real estate companies, aerospace and defense companies, and many others. We know that our clients want results. Our ability to work with them to achieve their objectives is a major contributing factor to our firm’s ongoing success and one of the primary reasons that we enjoy many longstanding client relationships. We are proud of the many cases we have tried and won for clients before juries, judges, and arbitration panels, and equally proud of our ability to find creative solutions both inside and outside the courtroom.

At Figari + Davenport, we emphasize trial and tactical skills, superlative client service, excellence, and achievement.

Client Service

We focus on bringing value to every client engagement. We take the time to understand our clients’ goals in a particular matter and work to develop the best strategy available to meet those objectives — and exceed expectations.

We often become “experts” in each client's business or industry, delving into the facts that can lead to the identification of a crucial issue for discovery or a winning argument in court. By understanding each client’s business or industry, we optimize our effectiveness, promote efficiencies in current and future litigation, and forge an even stronger connection to our clients. Our goal is to step into our clients’ shoes and see things from their perspective, as well as our own. This approach helps us assist them not only with the legal matter at hand, but also with broader business or industry issues of importance to them.

We view our clients as part and parcel of the litigation team and collaborate with them as we move forward together. As part of this dynamic, we remain as accessible as possible and focus on providing a high degree of responsiveness. In working with in-house counsel and corporate executives, we remain vigilant about budgets and are sensitive to costs, supplying options and meaningful alternatives when appropriate.

Whether we are representing a Fortune 500 company, a small business, or an individual, we remain committed to providing exceptional service.
