ALM asked the editors of the new edition of Texas Business Litigation (published by ALM) to provide their perspective on the state of litigation in Texas and what to expect in the coming year. Sofia Adrogué is a litigator with 25 years of experience and trial partner at Diamond McCarthy LLP and Hon. Caroline Baker is a senior state district judge with 21 years serving the citizens of Harris County. The editors worked with over 25 litigators from a wide array of firms and organizations across Texas to provide guidance for litigators and their clients now and for the years ahead.
