Extended Lease & New Additions to the Team!

We are excited to report that we’ve negotiated an extension of our lease in our current office space in downtown Austin at 816 Congress Avenue and we will continue to call this address home for at least the next decade. Maintaining a downtown presence was important to us to support our clients and access to the Capitol, the Travis County Courthouse, and many of the various state agencies that are the focus of our practice.

We are also pleased to announce that our Lloyd Gosselink team is growing! Please welcome three new Associates: Patrick Dinnin, Emily Linn, and Jacqueline Perrin; new Paralegal, Sam Weaver, who will support the Energy and Utility Practice Group; and finally, Bettye Lynn is now Of Counsel to the Firm.
