Please note that these popular practice areas depend on numerous variables such as the local economy, new law, and level of enforcement and are always subject to change.

1. Corporate: Texas corporate law generally revolves around bankruptcy and complex employment issues. In addition, as a reaction to the Enron debacle, many Texas attorneys now focus entirely on the compliance and administrative issues that attach to these legal areas. Corporate law is always popular in Dallas and Houston.

2. Energy: With an abundance of oil and gas, energy law seems to always be in vogue in Texas as more and more firms project growth in this area of practice. Litigation is especially on the rise in Dallas and Houston.

4. Intellectual Property: Texas intellectual property law has become increasingly segmented as of late. This means that what is hot in Austin and El Paso (technology/telecommunications) will differ substantially from what is popular in Dallas (telecommunications/trade secrets) and what is in style in Houston (aerospace/tech equipment). Nonetheless, patents, trademarks, and copyrights remain the common denominators in Texas as attorneys continue to find work in these areas statewide.

5. International: Texas's geographic location gives its denizens an opportunity to explore the global legal scene as well. Latin American communities are by far the most represented. International law is heating up in Dallas and Houston.
