Bell Nunnally Managing Partner Christopher B. Trowbridge is featured in the 2024 edition of “The Dallas 500,” a special publication from D Magazine Partners (publishers of D Magazine and D CEO) and available now. Trowbridge is listed in the “Law – Managing Partners” category, part of a larger roundup featuring 500 North Texas business leaders across more than 50 industries.
“Chris’ clients trust him to defend their interests effectively and expeditiously, in courts and hearings throughout Texas and across the country. His sterling reputation as a litigator and business leader is reflected in this selection,” said Jay Wallace, Bell Nunnally partner and head of the firm’s Litigation Section. “What sets Chris apart is his high-performance across numerous disciplines – in client meetings; before judges, juries and regulatory tribunals; in service to the community; and in the halls of Bell Nunnally as our managing partner. He is one of the leading business stars in the Metroplex.”
“The Dallas 500” is produced by the editors of D CEO and features “the most powerful business leaders in Dallas – Fort Worth.” Selections are based on “extensive contacts in local business circles, hundreds of interviews and months of research.” The guide “goes far beyond corporate bios to reveal the personal side of the leaders who drive the North Texas economy and make it such a vibrant place to work and live.”
D CEO editor Christine Perez in her announcement letter noted, “This honor recognizes [selectees] for being among the most significant and influential business leaders in North Texas.”
