Texas Bar Foundation Fellows are selected based on an outstanding record of professional achievements and commitment to support the community at large. Less than 1 percent of all Texas attorneys are nominated each year.
"There are very few attorneys who can match Gene's breadth and depth of legal experience," says The Lanier Law Firm founder and Texas Bar Fellow Mark Lanier. "The entire firm would like to congratulate him on this well-deserved honor."
Mr. Egdorf represents clients in complex commercial litigation and serious personal injury matters. His experience also includes representing businesses and individuals in antitrust, patent infringement and breach of contract matters, as well as cases involving work-related injuries and dangerous products.
He also leads the firm's Sports and Entertainment Law practice group. He is a certified contract advisor with the NFL Players Association and the Canadian Football League, and represents players who have been seriously hurt in practice or games.
His election as a Texas Bar Foundation Fellow is the latest recognition for Mr. Egdorf, who recently earned a spot on the Texas Super Lawyers listing based on his work for clients in business litigation. He also maintains the highest-possible AV® Preeminent™ peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell, and was recognized as one of the National Trial Lawyers Association's Top Trial Lawyers in 2011 and 2012.
The Texas Bar Foundation, the largest charitably funded bar foundation in the country, provides funding to enhance the rule of law and the system of justice in Texas. The group focuses on programs related to the administration of justice, legal ethics, pro bono legal assistance and public education.
With offices in Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Palo Alto, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, intellectual property, business litigation, product liability, maritime law, bad faith insurance claims, and sports and entertainment law.
