Our firm is pleased to announce the three name partners of Harper Bates & Champion LLP, including Scott Harper, Shannon Bates and Austin Champion have been included in the 2016 edition of Texas Super Lawyers Magazine.
Only the top five percent of attorneys in each state are selected as Texas Super Lawyers through an annual, state-by-state selection process that includes peer nominations, independent research and peer evaluations. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the State of Texas are selected to the Rising Stars list each year. Those selected are included in lists published both nationally in Super Lawyers Magazine and in regional newspapers and publications to serve as a resource for attorneys and consumers seeking outstanding legal counsel.
The firm's are no strangers to the Super Lawyers list. Shannon Bates has been recognized every year from 2012 to 2016, and Austin Champion has been recognized as a “Rising Star” in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016. The firm is especially pleased to announce that Scott Harper has been selected for the first time to the Super Lawyers list in 2016.
We are proud of the caliber of representation our attorneys provide and the recognitions they have earned from others in the industry as a result. For instance, Bates is a past recipient of the Chair Award for outstanding service and contributions by the State Bar of Texas Intellectual Property Law Section. Additionally, Harper has been repeatedly honored with the top ranking of AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, one of the industry’s leading peer review ratings.
