Vinson & Elkins' lawyers are well connected to the city’s many flourishing and diverse industries, especially the high-tech, life sciences, environmental, manufacturing, private equity, and venture capital sectors.

We offer legal services to a broad spectrum of local, national, and international clients helping them meet their business goals. With our experience and industry knowledge, we approach the needs of clients in a collaborative, team manner. 

Lawyers in V&E’s Austin office work in many of the firm’s key practice groups, including Intellectual Property and Life Sciences, Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity, Venture Capital, Litigation, Environmental, Appellate, and Regulatory. We represent clients in a variety of areas, such as patent litigation, technology counseling, acquisitions and divestitures, public and private offerings, and private equity/venture capital transactions.

Many of the lawyers in our Austin office have been recognized as among the best in their fields in surveys by leading publications, such as Legal 500 U.S., Chambers USA, The Best Lawyers in Americaand Super Lawyers

In addition to our commitment to client service, we enthusiastically support community involvement and pro bono projects. Our lawyers actively participate in nonprofit organizations, and we frequently partner with other community groups to host events benefiting Central Texas. For more than a decade, our lawyers have partnered with Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas to staff monthly legal advice clinics for low-income clients, and we are five-time recipients of the nonprofit’s Pro Bono Award. In addition, in 2014, V&E received the Access to Justice Award for the Best Pro Bono Firm from American Gateways for the firm’s commitment to work on asylum-related matters. We are committed to making a difference in our community.
