Eight is Great: Austin Champion Recognized by Texas Rising Stars

Austin Champion has been named to the 2020 Texas Rising Stars list by Super Lawyers, which marks the eighth time Champion has been recognized by Texas Rising Stars.

Super Lawyers is a rating service based on peer nominations that are supported by interviews, independent research, data verification and good-standing review. Only 2.5 percent of lawyers in the State of Texas are selected to the Rising Stars list each year. Rising Stars recognizes attorneys who are 40 years or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. Those selected are included in lists published both nationally in Super Lawyers Magazine and regionally in publications to serve as a resource for attorneys and consumers seeking outstanding legal counsel.

“I am humbled to be recognized by my peers as an emerging attorney in Texas,” Champion said. “These honors are not possible without great colleagues and clients.”

In addition to the Super Lawyers recognition, Champion has also been recognized in the past year by Texas Lawyer, Best Lawyers in America and D Magazine.

Champion, a founding partner of Harper Bates & Champion, focuses his practice on complex, high-stakes business and IP litigation. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin and earned his law degree from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, where he served as an articles editor on the SMU Law Review Association and graduated with honors.
