Winstead PC is a national corporate law firm with offices in Texas and North Carolina. In 2012 the National Law Journal listed Winstead PC among the 250 largest law firms in the United States with 300 attorneys.[1] In October 2012, Winstead's largest office moved to the Winstead Building located at 2728 N. Harwood Street, Dallas, Texas. The firm's attorneys and consultants serve as legal advisors to mid-market and large businesses, providing legal services to industries including biotechnology, construction, energy, financial services, insurance, nanotechnology, real estate, sports business and technology.


Winstead PC has seven offices across the United States, including Austin, Charlotte, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and The Woodlands.


In 1986 Winstead PC moved from the Mercantile National Bank complex to the Renaissance Tower. In 2012, the Dallas office relocated to the Winstead Building located at 2728 N. Harwood Street, Dallas, Texas 75201.


Winstead was founded in 1973 by three young Dallas lawyers—including current name shareholder Pete Winstead. By the end of the 1980s the Dallas practice had expanded to more than 170 attorneys, with additional offices in Houston and Austin.[2] Acquisitions of existing firms in Fort Worth, The Woodlands and Washington, D.C., resulted in greater expansion of client services. Today, Winstead employs 300 attorneys in seven locations across the United States.

2011 Houston Office Lateral Recruiting[edit]

Winstead went through a period of rapid expansion in 2011, adding 28 lawyers across its footprint, including seven in Houston prior to the latest move. Legal sector HR search firms say Winstead is one of several firms that have recently enticed groups of Houston attorneys away from competitors.[3]
