Alex J. Brown represents large groups of clients in national product liability litigation. He also represents individuals and businesses in federal and state courts across the country at both the trial and appellate level, and in domestic and international arbitration forums.
Before he became a plaintiff’s lawyer, Alex was a partner in the Houston office of one of the oldest and largest law firms in Texas. There, he represented multi-national corporations in complex business disputes involving international project development, partnerships, oil and gas ventures, corporate governance and real estate development.
Just prior to joining Heard Law Firm, Alex worked closely with legendary trial lawyer, Mark Lanier and served on his trial team for over 4 years. The trials he helped manage for Lanier include two Pinnacle hip implant trials in 2016 and an Actos drug trial in 2014 that resulted in historic jury verdicts in favor of the plaintiffs. Alex was recognized for his work on these cases by The Legal 500 2016 publication - the world’s largest legal referral guide.
Alex was named to the Texas Rising Star list in 2007, 2009-2014. In 2017 he was selected to the Texas Super Lawyers* list. For nearly a decade, he has also maintained an AV Preeminent® ranking among his peers, which is awarded by Martindale-Hubbell to those attorneys whose peers rank them “at the highest level of professional excellence for their legal knowledge, communication skills and ethical standards.”
Alex is a native Houstonian who is licensed in Texas and New York. He is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Southern, Northern and Eastern District of Texas as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
When he isn’t traveling around the country for firm clients, Alex enjoys spending time with his wife and three children and being outdoors.
