Litigating with the government is difficult. Whether in the courtroom or in front of an agency, a special type of experience is necessary to succeed. Thompson & Knight understands and has more than 50 years of experience in this area. Our federal practice includes disputes with agencies from the Department of Agriculture to the Department of Transportation, and everything in between.  At the state level, we have litigated against virtually every major Texas agency and numerous smaller ones. At the local level, we have either sued or defended suits involving cities large and small, and have represented taxpayers across the state in challenging appraisal district actions.

In court and in administrative proceedings, Thompson & Knight attorneys have litigated with more than 35 federal government agencies, 45 state government agencies, and 30 local/city/municipal government agencies.
