Partners Legal Search of Houston, owned by veteran Texas recruiter James M. Wilson, has been identified in court documents as the search firm that sued two partners of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton in Houston this summer over a search fee related to their move to that firm.

In June, a search firm identified as USPLS L.C. sued Houston lawyers Patrick Gaas and Daniel Shank, alleging they breached a yearlong search contract by cutting the recruiter out of a deal that allowed Kilpatrick Townsend to launch a Houston office in 2017. ULPLS was identified in the petition as the “assignee of causes of action” of a professional employment agency.
