Our Approach

Over the last half century, Hawkins Parnell Thackston & Young LLP has grown to include more than 160 lawyers in 10 offices located in Atlanta, Austin, Charleston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Napa, New York, St. Louis, and San Francisco. HPTY represents some of America’s largest corporations, small local businesses and individual clients in high-risk litigation and business disputes. Our attorneys have practiced in all 50 states, including taking hundreds of trials to verdict. Larger firms engage us to add courtroom expertise without fear that we will interfere with their client relationships.  

Although trial success has always been a hallmark of HPTY, our attorneys routinely advise clients in risk management to avoid litigation. We make it a priority to learn our clients’ specific needs and to ensure those needs are met in every case. HPTY has the expertise and experience to provide a full range of litigation options, from verdict and appeal to quick and confidential settlements. With HPTY’s well-known ability and willingness to take a trial to verdict in any court, our clients are often able to achieve desirable outcomes in the earliest stages of litigation. Despite being involved in contentious, high-stakes litigation, our diverse team of attorneys maintain a high-level of professionalism under all circumstances.
