The Texas commercial litigation lawyers at Kilgore & Kilgore have a long history of business law representation on behalf of a wide range of industries, company sizes and business models. We understand the speed of change in the business world and the need for smart, aggressive lawyers who can resolve business disputes quickly, bringing the parties to settlement before trial, prevailing in arbitration and winning in court.

In the 50s and 60s, Kilgore & Kilgore represented oil wildcatters and established its commercial litigation practice representing an array of businesses from small, family owned businesses, single location enterprises, large corporations, Fortune 500 companies and international businesses. Today, Kilgore & Kilgore continues to bring actions and try lawsuits on behalf of client businesses, shareholders, employees and inventors.

Build a Law Team

Kilgore & Kilgore respects established relationships with corporate counsel and frequently joint ventures with other lawyers representing companies wishing to create legal teams with adequate resources. We receive most of our business referrals from other lawyers. When a conflict arises or there is a need for local or trial counsel, we stand ready to support the team in whatever configuration makes the most sense for achieving the best outcome.

Let's Connect

We are Flexible

We are especially keen to control legal costs and align ourselves with the economic interests of clients. We use a variety of strategies to fit different situations, such as flat rate fees, contingency fees, reverse contingent fees and modified hourly rates. When contingency fee scenarios come into play, we apply legal fees, court costs and other reimbursable expenses to the client’s portion of the settlement amount.

Testimonial
“Ted is that rare combination of an attorney who knows the details of the law… but also sees the big picture. He guided us through the litigation process in a strategic way. You can never say that being involved in litigation was fun, but working with him surely was. We really appreciated his technical knowledge and his business advice.”
– Ron, partner of a venture capital company, 2008
