Litigation boutique specializes in construction trial work

HOUSTON – Construction and business litigation firm West Mermis, PLLC, has earned national recognition among the Best Law Firms in the country by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America.

The firm was selected to the 2019 list of construction litigation firms recognized nationally, and in the Houston metro area, West Mermis is ranked in the top tier of such law firms.

“Our strength is that we understand the issues faced by those in the construction business,” said founding partner Lawrence West. “We’re able to take their challenges into consideration as we devise our legal strategy. That’s not a skill every attorney has.”

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers selection process involves a lawyer survey and feedback from clients on a firm’s expertise, responsiveness and cost-effectiveness along with other questions.

“Some lawyers can’t think like a business person. They can,” a client recently remarked while relating their experience with the firm.

The lawyers at West Mermis also have been individually recognized for their skills. Both Mr. West and co-founder Joshua Mermis were named earlier this year to the 2019 listing of The Best Lawyers in America for their construction litigation work. Both also have earned honors among Texas lawyers in another peer-review guide, Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers magazine.

Mr. Mermis and Mr. West are well-known for their experience in the construction and energy industries and are frequently asked to speak and present on these topics and others.

The firm litigates matters that include large construction defect suits, product liability, employment matters, contract disputes and oil and gas liens.

Based in Houston, West Mermis, PLLC, is a litigation firm specializing in high-stakes construction trial work and business concerns. With a legal team composed of some of the state’s top legal talent, the firm uses its years of courtroom and litigation experience to achieve consistently positive results for its clients.
