About the Firm

One of the oldest law firms, known for its excellent services and presence throughout the United States is the law firm of Thompson and Knight. The firm specializes in representing clients in matters related to energy finance, taxation, and business and corporate law, and has achieved considerable success in these areas. The firm also has a subsidiary of the same name that provides consulting services in the energy sector. Through their strong commitment to helping clients achieve their goals, use of modern technology, and unparalleled experience in law, the attorneys at Thompson and Knight have come to be recognized at the very top of their practice areas.

The firm was founded in Dallas, Texas, in 1887 by William Thompson, and R.E.L Knight, two of the earliest law graduates of the University of Texas. One of the firm’s first major cases involved the removal of a railway company’s tracks from downtown Dallas, and ever since their success in that case, Thompson and Knight never looked back. Several other landmark cases in matters related to taxation and development of integrated circuits greatly aided in setting the firm a class apart from others. To this day, the attorneys at Thompson and Knight strive to maintain the standards of excellence set more than 100 years ago, and maintain the tradition of providing outstanding services and legal counsel to clients throughout the world. The firm’s current managing partner, Emily Parker, has won some of the largest income tax cases in U.S. History, and has recently served as the Chief Counsel and Deputy Chief Counsel of the IRS.

The attorneys at Thompson and Knight are actively involved in pro bono work and community service activities. Over the years, the firm has received numerous awards for its pro bono work, included an award for Outstanding Medium Law Firm of the Year from a legal aid volunteer program. The firm also prides itself in maintaining a diverse, inclusive environment for the large number of employees and is ranked among the Top 100 Law Firms for Diversity. With more than 125 years of legal experience, and an outstanding team of attorneys, the law firm of Thompson and Knight is the go-to place for all your legal needs.
