My clients rely on me, as their primary counsel and partner, to be laser focused on protecting and planning for every aspect of their business, both now and in the future. I help them solve their problems and avoid problems altogether. And if they have a challenge I, myself, cannot solve, I’ll assemble and lead the right team of lawyers who can.
Jeff Leach’s practice is focused primarily in the areas of complex commercial and civil litigation, construction law and real estate. He was recently reelected to serve his sixth term in the Texas House of Representatives, representing House District 67 in Collin County.
Since taking office in 2013, Jeff has served on the House Committee on Economic and Small Business Development, the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence, the House Committee on Government Transparency and Operations and the House Committee on Rules & Resolutions. He has also served as Vice Chairman of the House Committee on Urban Affairs and was elected by his colleagues to serve on the Texas House Republican Caucus Policy Committee. In addition, Jeff was assigned to chair the House Committee on Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence for the 86th and 87th Legislative Sessions.
At Gray Reed, Jeff serves as outside general counsel for general contractors and various other construction clients, handling everything from litigation and transactions to employment issues, regulatory compliance and taxation. He also frequently steps outside of his core practice and lends a hand to the firm’s other clients in a variety of special projects.
Jeff’s philosophy is to be an effective advocate by advising clients on the various options to resolve disputes and communicating directly with opposing parties and their counsel, judges, arbitrators and mediators in an effort to resolve disputes efficiently without the need for trial or arbitration. If necessary, he will leverage his education and experience to fully protect his client’s interests in adversarial proceedings, be it in the courtroom or in arbitration.
