Back in 1882, two talented trial lawyers saw big potential in the booming frontier town of Fort Worth. William Capps and Samuel Benton Cantey were most certainly visionaries, founding what is now Cantey Hanger LLP—a law firm whose history is woven into that of Texas itself.
Since our founding, we have made a name for ourselves as top litigators and business law practitioners. Now a respected, full-service law firm, Cantey Hanger represents storied companies and up-and-coming players across the state and the country.
Our clients include energy powerhouses, government entities, esteemed non-profits, and high-net-worth individuals. We maintain a strong physical presence in our hometown, with a landmark building on the west side of downtown Fort Worth and more than 50 attorneys on the ground. Together with our teams in Dallas, Austin, and Ellis County, we provide Texas-wide representation whenever it’s needed.
While our roots are deep, we are constantly looking forward and still playing an integral part in Fort Worth’s continuing prosperity and growth.
Texas is now the world’s ninth-largest economy. As a critical part of this economic engine, Dallas—with a 2020 total GDP of $477 billion— is a thriving modern symbol of the state’s ingenuity and ambition.
Cantey Hanger’s Dallas office represents companies and individuals across industries ranging from commercial real estate and construction to insurance, energy and professional services. We help create, build, and protect the interests of our clients in complex matters throughout the lifecycle of a business.
Our focus is on responsive, cost-effective, strategic legal advice. We’re always looking at the big picture and keeping an eye on what the future may hold. The Dallas team works closely with our counterparts in Fort Worth and Austin to provide advice across three major markets and beyond.
