“In a nutshell, over the course of 38 years as an attorney myself, and former International Legal Counsel for a Fortune 25 company with responsibility for managing many law firms over the years, Lexie White is among the very best – if not the best – I have worked with, anywhere. Most recently, she represented me in complex patent litigation (I ended up being an inventor and software entrepreneur), and secured licenses for me with the 12 largest software companies in the world, including IBM; Microsoft; Oracle; SAP; etc. This journey of bitterly fought litigation included 2 trips to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and one to the Supreme Court (cert denied), in various attempts to invalidate my patents. I don’t hesitate to recommend Lexie and her colleagues at Susman Godfrey. There are none better. Read More.

“By far the best lawyer we worked with, Lexie amazed us with her streamlined and efficient case management, saving us huge amounts of time and money as we ramped up toward trial….Lexie’s diligence and talent won us a huge victory at trial….I sincerely hope our business will never be such in a lawsuit again. But if we ever are, there is nobody I would ever trust it with but Lexie White and her team at Susman Godfrey.” Read full letter here. — Chet Hall

“I’ve been practicing law for over 50 years. Lexie White recently handled a case for me . . . . She had a short period of time to amass many facts, put them into a set of answering papers, and, finally, to win our case at a hearing, strictly on cross examination. She did a superb job, and I unhesitatingly recommend her legal services in any matter you may have. She is easily on a par with the best lawyers I have ever dealt with.”

Ms. White is a partner with Susman Godfrey and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. She has handled a broad array of commercial disputes for both plaintiffs and defendants, often in a lead or co-lead counsel role. Her past cases have involved high stakes intellectual property disputes, tortious interference with or breach of contract, mass or class action disputes, professional malpractice, insurance disputes, oil and gas disputes, and environmental and pollution claims, among others.
Ms. White has enjoyed success both at trial and on appeal. She was recently named “Litigator of the Week” by Texas Lawyer for a win for her client WickFire in a February 2017 jury trial involving competing claims of tortious interference with contract by two internet marketing companies, each of whom claimed the other had misused Google Adwords technology and bidding system. Ms. White successfully defeated a $22 million counterclaim brought against her client, and obtained a jury verdict awarding the full amount of the damages her client sought on its affirmative claims. In another case, Ms. White successfully argued that the Federal Circuit should make new law for her client in a complicated patent ownership dispute. The decision was profiled in several leading publications, and spawned a series of seminars highlighting its significance.
Ms. White was recognized in 2016 as a “Top Litigator Under 40” by Benchmark Litigation (Euromoney PLC), and in 2010 as a “Rising Star” by Law & Politics Magazine (Thomson Reuters) and as a “Professional on the Fast Track” by H Texas Magazine. Several of Ms. White’s cases have been featured in Business Week, The American Lawyer, and Law 360. She has developed a growing and loyal following of clients and co-counsel who consistently call her to handle both their routine and their “bet the company” litigation. She derives great satisfaction from exceeding her clients’ expectations in terms of the result obtained and the cost of achieving it.
