Carrington Coleman is expanding its corporate practice with the addition of corporate and transactional attorney Bret Madole as leader of the firm’s corporate practice.
Mr. Madole’s practice involves general corporate transactional work, mergers and acquisitions, banking, bank lending, and intellectual property, including copyrights, trademarks, and licensing. He joins the firm from Dallas’ David Goodman & Madole, where he practiced for 22 years.
“We have established middle market transactional expertise, and Bret’s addition substantially expands that capability and shows we are ready to grow,” says Bruce Collins, managing partner at Carrington Coleman. “Bret will be an invaluable resource to our clients for their lending and corporate transactional work, mergers and acquisitions, and more. We’re very happy he’s joining us.”
The addition of Mr. Madole is just the latest growth move at Carrington Coleman, which opened an east Texas office earlier this year to better serve area clients with litigation and transactional needs. The firm also recently added attorney Jorge Gutierrez as Of Counsel in its Oil and Gas practice, in addition to several new associates.
Mr. Madole earned his law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law and his undergraduate degree from Birmingham-Southern College. In addition to his substantial bank lending and corporate capability, Bret joins Carrington Coleman with a background in sports marketing, technology, and product manufacturing.
“Carrington Coleman has long been known as a premier litigation firm in Texas and one of the best in the country,” Mr. Madole says. “I see this as a tremendous opportunity to help grow the firm’s existing corporate and transactional practice and make it one of the best as well.”
