Principal Tom Melsheimer was profiled by Law360 as part of the Trial Aces List of 50 accomplished attorneys for 2015. Melsheimer is the Managing Principal of the firm’s Dallas office and head of the office’s trial practice.

Mr. Melsheimer tries lawsuits in state and federal courts, emphasizing intellectual property, business torts, and False Claims Act litigation. His trial experience is unusually broad and extensive. On the civil side, he has tried to verdict cases involving patent infringement, insider trading, antitrust, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and False Claims Act violations. On the criminal side, he has tried to verdict cases involving bank fraud, public corruption, copyright infringement and kidnapping. Mr. Melsheimer’s jury trials include successfully representing plaintiffs and defendants on both coasts and throughout Texas.

“He likes to win,” Natalie Arbaugh, a fellow principal in the Dallas office, said. “He wants to make sure he’s going to win. He has so much passion for this and so much passion for telling the story to the jury. He wants to make sure he doesn’t overlook anything.” Arbaugh continued, “I could not have been more fortunate in my legal career in having the mentor I do in Tom. He’s way beyond what I would have ever expected. He’s an advocate for people who work for him, he takes time to train you, [and] he knows and is very cognizant of the fact that cares are in court less nowadays. If my life were on the line, I would want Tom Melsheimer on my case.”
