I enjoy helping business decision makers think through the tough legal issues they face in their complex jobs so that they can focus on their many other demands.
Robert L. Kimball

Robert Kimball advises public and private companies on capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance matters.

In a career spanning more than three decades, Robert has counseled clients on domestic and cross-border transactions across a wide array of industries including airlines and aviation, computer and information technology, energy, finance, life sciences, manufacturing, and telecommunications.

Robert brings extensive technical knowledge and efficiency to his practice. The recipient of recognition from multiple sources, he was named “Lawyer of the Year,” Corporate Law (Dallas/Fort Worth) in 2017 and 2020, and “Lawyer of the Year,” Mergers & Acquisitions Law (Dallas/Fort Worth) in 2019 and 2020 by The Best Lawyers in America. Sources quoted by Chambers USA call Robert “a savant in pulling together all the issues” and a “very astute and hard-working lawyer who is very commercial” (2019).

In addition to his practice, Robert frequently lectures on the topic of corporate governance and has served as an adjunct professor at SMU Dedman School of Law. He was the longtime co-chair of the SEC Hot Topics Institute, an annual conference where experts provide insights on crucial issues facing corporate and securities law practitioners and finance professionals.
