Mike Lynn is the Chairman and Founding Partner of LPHS. Over the past 30 years, he has fostered a culture of excellence, preparedness, toughness, and creativity among this elite group of business trial lawyers, whom he refers to as “the special forces of litigation.” 75% of LPHS lawyers have served as federal law clerks at the district and circuit levels or the Supreme Court of Texas, while the entire team shares an unparalleled love of law and passion for winning. So it comes as no surprise that the most prestigious legal ranking firms, Chambers and Partners, has ranked LPHS as one of the Top Five Commercial Litigation Firms in all of Texas or the Top Two firms in DFW for seven years running.

Throughout his personal career, Mike has tried to verdict more than 120 civil and criminal jury trials and 100 non-jury, arbitration, and injunction matters. He’s been recognized as one of the “Best Lawyers in America” for the past twelve years, and is the only lawyer, to our knowledge who has garnered “Nation’s Defense Win of the Year” by the National Law Journal twice.

Mike led a team of lawyers on behalf of Energy Transfer Partners to obtain one of the largest verdicts in Dallas-Fort Worth history ($940 million). He obtained one of the largest settlements of a trade secret case and one of the top defamation verdicts in the region. And in 2016, he helped obtain a $146 million verdict for T. Boone Pickens’ company Mesa Petroleum, which was the largest verdict in Reeves County.

Over the last 30 years, Mike has served as Co-Chair and Council Member on a number of committees of the ABA Litigation Section. Mike presently serves as Co-Chair on the Federal Rules Task Force of the Litigation Section of the ABA. He’s an active member of the American Law Institute and is a frequent public speaker on legal topics.
