Areas of Practice
Stephen Fox has spent more than 25 years in boardrooms and courtrooms acting as a trusted advisor and litigation advocate for clients—from Fortune 500 corporations to entrepreneurs—in complicated and often high-profile business and employment disputes. Consistently recognized by peers and clients in state and national surveys as a “go-to” courtroom advocate, Steve is the only lawyer in Texas to be inducted as a Fellow into the nationally-prestigious College of Labor and Employment Lawyers and selected by his peers as one of the top 100 attorneys in Texas.
Steve’s advice/counseling and trial practice is focused on complex business and employment litigation. His business litigation experience includes trying cases involving:
Theft of intellectual property
Breaches of contract and fiduciary duties
Business torts (fraud, unfair competition, defamation)
Whistleblowing and qui tam actions
One of Steve’s cases is enshrined in the Texas Jury Trial Hall of Fame. In that case, Steve led the trial effort of a renowned computer-game developer and company executive against one of the world’s largest video game publishers for breaching a stock option agreement, securing a jury verdict of $28 million (and a judgment of $32 million). The National Law Journal identified the award as one of the Top Verdicts in the country.
