ATTORNEYDaniel M. Branum

“Litigation is a necessary evil in today’s business world. You must be prepared to defend and pursue claims to protect yourself from those who do not follow the rules. I’m here to help you do that.”

Dan focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, trial work, general business litigation, real estate litigation, consumer fraud litigation, internal and government investigations, and e-discovery management. Prior to founding Branum PLLC, he spent most of his career in the Litigation Section at the well-regarded international law firm of Locke Lord LLP. He also practiced at Figari + Davenport, one of Texas’ top litigation boutiques.

Dan has considerable experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts at every stage of the litigation process, from pre-suit investigation and settlement negotiation to trial and appellate work. Dan has worked with clients in numerous industries, including oil and gas, insurance, construction, agriculture, real estate, mortgage and lending, software development, and consumer finance.

Dan has assisted clients with investigations involving the SEC, FTC, FINRA, OFAC, state attorneys general, and internal corporate malfeasance. Dan is highly skilled in the field of e-discovery management, techniques, and best practices.

Dan is originally from Oklahoma, but he has spent most of his adult life in Austin, Houston, and Dallas.  Although he’s lived in urban metropolises ever since law school, Dan was raised in a small town, married a small town girl, and spends much of his time with family in rural SW Oklahoma and NW Texas. As such, Dan feels just as comfortable representing Fortune 500 companies as he does rural agricultural clients and has been successful in both urban and rural courts.

Dan is a member of numerous community and professional organizations including the Dallas Bar Association, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Trial Lawyers Association, Oklahoma Association of Justice, Dallas Young Lawyers Association, Texas Young Lawyers Association, and the Computer and Technology and Oil, Gas, and Energy Resources Law Sections of the Texas Bar Association.

As part of his pro bono work, Dan has represented victims of fraudulent real estate transactions and assisted families with adoptions. In Dan’s free time he enjoys carpentry, shooting, traveling, and spending time with his family.
