Three Firm Attorneys Honored on the List of Texas Super Lawyers
Three partners from Burns Charest LLP have been selected to the 2021 list of Texas Super Lawyers. Honorees are chosen through a process involving nominations by other lawyers, a review by a blue-ribbon panel of attorneys who practice the same areas of law, and research by the publication’s staff. The list reflects only the top five percent of practicing attorneys in Texas.
Honored in the Antitrust Litigation category, Warren Burns has tried nationwide class actions and numerous multidistrict litigation cases involving antitrust claims and other consumer and competition-related issues. He currently handles lawsuits involving price-fixing against Germany’s largest automobile manufacturers, as well as RICO and monopolization claims against the manufacturer and distributor of the EpiPen.
Daniel Charest is recognized in the area of Energy and Natural Resources based on his experience in complex commercial litigation and success in a wide array of oil and gas disputes. His work in the oil and gas space ranges from international arbitration over drilling rights off the coast of Africa to purchase-and-sale disputes to royalty litigation to lease challenges over production in paying quantities. He currently serves as co-lead counsel in high-profile takings claims by landowners relating to government-induced flooding after Hurricane Harvey.
Darren Nicholson is named to the list for Business Litigation. For almost 20 years, Darren has represented plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation, intellectual property disputes, and white-collar criminal cases in courts across the nation. Among his most notable cases are the successful representation of plaintiffs in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit involving business fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and commercial bribery, and a jury verdict awarding 100 percent of requested damages and related claims in a breach of a patent licensing agreement. He currently represents hospitals in lawsuits against opioid manufactures and distributors to recover their costs in fighting the opioid epidemic.
