Texas Business Dispute Law Firm
Who We Are
Diamond McCarthy, LLP is a Texas-based firm made up of lawyers who have extensive experience representing clients in a wide variety of business disputes, business divorce situations and in business reorganizations and restructuring matters.
The attorneys at Diamond McCarthy represent clients in matters that include:
Many of our clients are business owners or substantial minority investors who have spent their lives building or investing in a private company. When third parties make claims against our client’s company or when our clients have disputes with other owners in the business, these conflicts often negatively impact the company and threaten the continued operation of the business. In these situations, we provide our clients with representation that is aggressive, focused and results-oriented so that third party claims and internal disputes can be resolved in a manner that preserves the value of the business.
Our process in each new matter begins in an old school way – from the very first contact with our client we listen carefully, closely, fully. We take the time required to understand the client’s company and industry in which it operates, as well as determining our client’s specific business objectives. This process enables us to understand the key facts, apply them to applicable law and then prepare and implement a detailed action plan that will achieve our client’s goals. We are business trial lawyers and we are committed at all times to securing a favorable business solution for our clients. Most of our cases involve complex business and financial issues, and our creativity and experience plays a large role in the outcome. In pursuing our client’s desired outcome, we are equally comfortable negotiating in the board room and advocating in the courtroom.
While Diamond McCarthy is a Texas-based firm, we have offices in New York City, San Francisco and Denver, and our attorneys represent clients in federal and state courts and also in arbitration venues throughout the country. If we can be a resource for you or for your company in a business dispute, please contact our attorneys at (214) 389-5300 to schedule a consultation.

The importance of culture is by no means limited to for profit companies – culture is also critical at not for profit firms, universities and trade groups.

“Sincerity is everything. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.” George Burns
We smile as we read George Burns’ famous quote because authenticity is such a key to success, we know some companies will attempt to fake it. In the business world where clients crave authenticity, however, false attempts at sincerity are a major turnoff.
Building A Positive Company Culture 101: A Critical Asset Not on the Balance Sheet (Part 2)
I came to appreciate the importance of a positive business culture when I first started practicing law as an associate attorney more than 30 years ago – well before the advent of smart phones, tablet computers and even the internet.
