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)

  • Corporate espionage

  • Whistleblowing and qui tam actions 

  • Securities fraud

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.
