Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 09, 2011
Recognizing their law firm’s contribution to Houston’s reputation as an “innovative town,” the Houston Business Journal has named attorneys Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin as members of its elite 40 Under 40 Class of 2011.
The founding attorneys of the Houston law firm of Arnold & Itkin LLP will be honored at the 40 Under 40 Awards on May 19 at the House of Blues as part of the business publication’s weeklong “Celebrate Enterprise” festivities.
They were selected from a large group of city-wide nominations for the award, which identifies those who “excel in their industry, are respected business leaders and show dynamic leadership in their community.”
“We appreciate the recognition of our peers and the honor by the Houston Business Journal,” Arnold said. “Jason and I think that the credit belongs to the effort of our attorneys and staff, who work extremely hard to get our clients great results.”
Arnold and Itkin are both graduates of the University of Texas School of Law and longtime Houston residents. Their Houston law firm assists clients in commercial business disputes, maritime injury cases, catastrophic personal injury claims and pharmaceutical litigation.
During the past year, the attorneys have shared their insights on maritime law and the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill with a variety of local and national media, including CNN, National Public Radio, The Houston Chronicle and ABC’s Houston affiliate.
Arnold & Itkin LLP has developed a reputation as one of the most aggressive and successful civil litigation law firms in the state of Texas, with its attorneys handling cases in more than 30 states and trying more than 50 cases in state and federal courts within the past four years.
In the last three years, the firm has secured hundreds of millions of dollars for its clients, ranging from aggrieved investors, investment banking firms, commercial clients and clients injured working offshore or in other dangerous environments.
“Our opponents know that we will be ready for trial. This allows us to win a premium for our clients if the case settles. And if a full settlement can’t be reached, we are ready to make our case to the jury,” Itkin said. “We know what’s at stake for our clients, and everything we do is geared towards delivering a successful result for them.”
