Bell Nunnally has added three commercial litigators – Kenneth (Kenny) C. Meixelsperger, Jonathan A. Aldaco and Catherine B. Baldo. The group comes from Cherry Petersen Albert in Dallas. Meixelsperger joins as partner, Aldaco as senior counsel and Baldo as associate.
“Kenny, Jonathan and Catherine’s arrival further strengthens our commercial litigation offerings for clients,” said Bell Nunnally Managing Partner Christopher B.

We are confident this group will thrive in our client-first, collegial culture.”
Meixelsperger for more than 20 years has represented clients in a diverse array of industries – including oil and gas, industrial products, construction, restaurants and hospitality and health care – in both state and federal courts in issues such as commercial and contract disputes, real estate, antitrust, oil and gas and products liability. He is a graduate of Baylor Law School (J.D., 2001) and Texas Tech University (B.B.A., 1997).
Aldaco is a commercial litigator, helping clients – including real estate developers, executives and businesses of all types and sizes ranging from closely held companies to Fortune 500 – resolve eminent domain, real estate and other business disputes. He also frequently represents property owners in various types of takings including commercial, industrial and rural properties. Listed in The Best Lawyers in America’s “One’s to Watch” for 2023 and in Super Lawyers’ “Rising Stars” 2023 list, Aldaco is a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law (J.D., 2015) and Texas A&M University (B.S., 2012).
Baldo litigates commercial disputes involving real estate, contract interpretation and enforcement, restaurant and hospitality, commercial finance and oil and gas issues. Skilled in all aspects of litigation – from discovery to depositions to trial – she was part of a trial team that successfully defended multimillion dollar claims brought against a real estate development company and its principal arising out of historic tax credit redevelopment project in Houston. Baldo is a graduate of Texas Tech University School of Law (J.D., summa cum laude, 2020) and the University of Texas at Austin (B.S., 2017).
“Bell Nunnally’s sterling reputation in the legal community and its dedication to resolving client concerns in a straightforward but assertive manner helped inform my decision to join,” said Meixelsperger. “Having worked closely with Jonathan and Catherine, I’m pleased that we could make this transition as a team. They are outstanding legal minds and, collectively, we look forward to helping our clients continue to resolve disputes swiftly and keep focus on their business goals.”
