Bracewell Wins Litigator of the Week Shout Out

The AmLaw Litigation Daily gave a shout out to Bracewell’s Sean Gorman and Christopher L. Dodson in its August 12 Litigator of the Week” competition, which recognized the top wins achieved that week by some of the nation’s leading litigation firms.

The Bracewell team, which earlier this summer was named a top runner-up, was recognized for the “extraordinary result” achieved for BMC Software, Inc. in BMC’s breach of contract suit against IBM Corp. On August 8, U.S. District Judge Gray H. Miller found BMC was entitled to more than $21 million in attorneys’ fees and costs for what he described as an “extraordinary result” by the Bracewell lawyers. On August 9, the judge denied IBM’s motion to amend the judgment, finding BMC “is not recovering a windfall so much as it is recuperating the benefit of its bargain.”
