Travis Nadalini is a trial lawyer and advisor to businesses in Texas and around the country for employment law-related issues and commercial litigation. He takes a practical, common-sense approach to practicing law and believes building strong relationships with clients is fundamental for achieving success in any dispute.

Travis has achieved favorable results for clients in a broad spectrum of matters, including restrictive covenants, trade secrets, discrimination, retaliation, wage/hour, harassment, unfair competition, wrongful termination, contract disputes, breach of fiduciary duties and defamation.

Travis also helps serve as outside general counsel to businesses across multiple industries by drafting employment agreements and policies, providing guidance on day-to-day employment decisions, and leveraging the skills of his colleagues to navigate the complex and constantly evolving business landscape.
