Who We Are

The Shields Difference

Shields Legal is a third-generation Texas law firm representing national clients who seek innovative and uncomplicated advice for complicated situations. Our team of professionals is committed to providing the highest standard of legal services to public and private enterprises facing opportunities or challenges in complex commercial matters.

We represent business owners and leaders—people who take ultimate responsibility for their enterprise’s impact and results. Our clients are builders, operators, investors, financiers, and founders who put their own and their organization’s time, effort, and resources at risk. Our team members treat all matters with the highest level of discretion, attention, and communication representative of the niche care of private client services.

At Shields Legal, transparency matters, and we strive to uphold this value in all that we do.

We bake trust into our client relationships, in part because our compensation model is different; it prioritizes communication, collaboration, and the right conclusion. Our compensation model links earnings to endeavors, which aligns all interests with excellent results in the right amount of time. This structure reinforces our prudent selection of matters, meticulous attention to detail, and the flexibility to provide thorough and tailored advice. Our expertise in cybersecurity and data privacy means we have embraced emerging technologies to continually provide better and more efficient outcomes for today’s complex problems.

The mission of Shields Legal is to bring strategic business insight, professional judgment and competence to your company’s business and legal issues.
