Our two named partners have more than 55 years of combined legal experience handling complex commercial litigation. Before attending law school, Robert Burford worked as a public accountant for two Big Eight accounting firms for several years. Robert has used his experience as an accountant to inform his nearly 30 years of complex commercial litigation work. Additionally, one of our associate attorneys, Shawn Johnson, also obtained his M.S. in Management Information Systems and his B.B.A. in Accounting from Texas A&M University and is Certified Public Accountant.
Brent Perry has had an exemplary career successfully litigating complex business and commercial litigation issues. In his over 25-year career, Brent has attained numerous multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts in commercial litigation matters. In 2015, he settled a minority shareholder’s suit for over $3 million after the Texas Supreme Court sharply limited shareholder oppression actions. Brent also obtained and collected on a $4.5 million judgment in 2012 against a major Korean shipbuilder for failure to pay commissions on contracts to build LNG carriers.
Both of our founding partners have an AV Rating from Martindale-Hubbell and have been designated Super Lawyers by Thomson Reuters. In addition, numerous other institutions have recognized Brent and Robert for their dedicated work. What makes Burford Perry LLP different is we understand what success means for our clients.

Sometimes the best solution is through negotiation, arbitration, or other alternative dispute resolution proceedings. We put our clients first and determine which method of success will work best for them and their businesses.
