Nicholas Pierce is a commercial litigator with experience obtaining favorable results for large corporations, energy companies, and insurance companies in a wide range of cases, including construction, personal injury, product liability, subrogation and various other types of disputes. He has also prosecuted highly complex commercial and professional liability matters – primarily lawsuits against lawyers for falling below the standards of care and conduct owed to clients. 

In the latter regard, Nicholas’s work in the professional liability arena has shaped Texas law governing lawyers, influencing critical issues such as expert testimony requirements, the application of the Texas Citizens Participation Act (TCPA) to legal malpractice claims, and the interpretation of the civil barratry statute, among others. 

Clients count on Nicholas for not only achieving the results they need, but also for doing so in an especially skillful, thorough and meticulous manner. He is well known for adept management of every aspect of a case, from initial client consultations and the investigation of potential claims to drafting petitions, responding to written discovery, overseeing extensive document production, constructing and challenging privilege logs, crafting compelling briefs and motions, and presenting contested motions before the court. He has also played a pivotal role in initiating and defending fact and expert witness depositions. Nicholas has participated in mediations and served as co-chair or second chair in several arbitrations and trials.
