William D. Dunn - Business Litigation Lawyer

William D. Dunn

After a 13-year career serving as a partner with one of Dallas' largest and most respected law firms, Dave Dunn decided to become a founding partner at Dunn Sheehan, LLP in 2010. Now, Dave utilizes a "light and fast" approach to the cases he handles. This allows him to work in a flexible manner – thanks to the boutique firm size – all while providing the same high-quality service of large firm, at a lower cost.

With extensive first-chair experience in federal court, state court and arbitration, Dave serves as a trial lawyer representing companies and individuals in litigation matters involving contracts, real estate and construction, partnership, shareholder and fiduciary relations, fraud and business torts, labor and employment, personal injury and premises liability, intellectual property (trade secrets, technology licensing, trademark, and copyright), creditors' rights and bankruptcy-related litigation and energy law.

Along with litigation matters, Dave is experienced in a wide array of general business and transactional matters. He is devoted to helping his clients form, structure, and operate all of their affairs with minimal risk and disruptions. He aims to help place them in a position to proactively challenge and eliminate future obstacles. In this capacity, Dave provides general counsel to multiple businesses, and advice on the day-to-day legal issues that they may face. This includes corporate formation and structuring, acquisitions and divestitures, lease and contract negotiation, licensing, intellectual property protection, employment relations, compliance issues, regulatory issues, and business dissolutions.
