Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith announced Jan. 16 that it has added three new partners in Houston and Beaumont.
Josh K. Davis joined the firm in the Houston office. Davis says his practice focuses on health-care liability defense and hospitality law. He says he defends hospitals and other health-care entities, hotels, bars and restaurants.
Davis, a 2001 graduate of South Texas College of Law, says he was on the Judge Evan A. Evans constitutional law moot court team that won a national championship in 2000.
Before joining Lewis Brisbois, he was a partner in Ebanks Horne Rota & Moos in Houston, Davis says.
Alan Sanders, who also has joined Lewis Brisbois as a partner in Houston, says he previously partnered with his father in their two-lawyer firm, Sanders & Sanders, in Orange. He says he handles transactional and litigation matters.
Sanders says he graduated first in his class from Louisiana State University School of Law in 1982 and was the executive editor of the LSU Law Review.
Long active in community affairs, Sanders says he served as president of the Orange Chamber of Commerce in 2000 and as president of the Rotary Club in Orange in 2004-2005.
Sanders says the advantages of moving to a larger firm include an opportunity to broaden his experience.“I wanted to be in an environment where I would likely have much more sophisticated matters to deal with,” he says.
Russ Heald has joined Lewis Brisois as a partner in Beaumont.
