Bill Finegan Joins Fulbright & Jaworski’s Dallas Office as Partner
Board certified since 1995 in labor and employment law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Finegan has a wide range of experience in labor and employment matters.

“Bill’s 17 years of practice encompass an impressively broad range of labor and employment experience—from cases involving claims by individual employees to counseling executives on corporate M&A employment strategies. He will deepen our firm's already exceptional ability to serve as trusted advisors to our clients, and we are very excited that he has chosen Fulbright as the firm where he can best grow his practice,” says Kenneth Stewart, partner-in-charge of the Dallas office.
Finegan’s experience includes representing emerging companies in labor and employment matters, counseling on labor issues inherent in mergers and acquisitions, strategy and communication planning relating to workplace change, representation of companies in petition avoidance and union avoidance counseling, collective bargaining/negotiations and traditional labor dispute resolution, employment litigation and the day-to-day counseling on all issues arising out of the employment relationship.
On joining Fulbright, Finegan commented, “As reflected in Fulbright’s most recent Annual Survey of Litigation Trends, labor and employment disputes are at the forefront of concerns to corporate America. I feel fortunate to join a firm that has a superior labor and employment group, as well as the world class breadth and depth of its business law practice.”
In 1988, Finegan received his J.D. with distinction from the University of Nebraska, where he was a member of theNebraska Law Review. In 1985, he received his B.A. from the University of Nebraska.
