Trial Lawyer Mark Werbner Joins Winston & Strawn in Dallas

DALLAS (April 8, 2019) – Winston & Strawn LLP is pleased to announce the addition of accomplished Dallas-based trial lawyer Mark Werbner in the firm’s Dallas office. Mark, co-founder of the successful Dallas litigation boutique Sayles Werbner, will be a partner in the firm’s Complex Commercial Litigation practice.

“If we were the so-called ‘Dream Team’ before, then adding Mark makes us dream-plus-one,” said Winston & Strawn Dallas Managing Partner Tom Melsheimer. “He’s just that good at what he does, and we are extremely fortunate to have him come join us.”

“When we opened the Dallas office two years ago, we were determined to bring in only the very best talent to be a part of our team,” said Winston & Strawn Chairman Tom Fitzgerald. “Mark Werbner fits that bill. He is an outstanding lawyer, and we look forward to working with him.”

Mark, who is board certified in both Criminal Law and Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, has tried more than 150 jury cases, many of which involved cutting-edge legal theories and very substantial stakes. In addition, Mark is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and in the International Society of Barristers, as well as an advocate in American Board of Trial Advocates.

“This was just the right opportunity at the right time—a time in my career where it made sense to go a different way,” Mark said. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to work with Tom and the other lawyers in Dallas and the Winston team globally.”

Winston & Strawn LLP is an international law firm with 16 offices located throughout North America, Asia, and Europe. More information about the firm is available at
