Bell Nunnally's vision advances that of the broader North Texas community it serves – helping businesses and individuals thrive across a level playing field. The law is central to all we do, and this takes many forms from helping entrepreneurs decode and hurdle complex regulations; to helping companies understand and maintain compliance with myriad local, state and federal requirements; to bringing deals to fruition; to fighting in the courtroom for fair treatment; and to protecting vital business and personal interests. In addition, our legal acumen is leveraged on a pro bono basis to advance a wealth of community-oriented causes from helping secure freedom for individuals sentenced to life-without-parole through a partnership with the Buried Alive Project, to fighting for affordable housing for low-income residents displaced by a natural disaster, to serving in a variety of capacities for civic and government organizations. Bell Nunnally is also acutely aware of the issue of underrepresentation, in terms of both diversity and inclusion, of persons of color and LGBTQ+ individuals in the legal profession. We are resolved to being part of the change and are driving meaningful dialogue through internal efforts, as well as taking measurable actions in our recruitment and hiring. We are committed to being a firm that looks like and is led by individuals who mirror the diversity of our clients and of North Texas broadly.
Bell Nunnally lawyers like to tell clients: your mission is our mission. Our success is predicated on our clients' success. While this may seem axiomatic, it's a focus that sets us apart from our competitors. We staff our accounts in a manner that ensures senior attorneys are engaged throughout the process while also providing mentoring opportunities for our newer attorneys. We have an "Open Door" policy, meaning that cross-practice collaboration is encouraged and we'd rather slow down, engage and ask questions internally than offer answers to clients that lack surety. Our goal is always to try and find the right answer to a particular challenge that helps a specific client and their business achieve its goals: there is no "one size fits all" guidance. For the Bell Nunnally team, every legal matter is part of a larger business objective that we seek to understand and help accomplish. We strive to anticipate larger problems before they happen and to counter them with intelligence and imagination – our actions always moored in integrity. In a landscape where out-of-state firms are increasingly opening offices in Dallas and throughout Texas, we are both proud of and guided by our Dallas roots. Local matters stay local, and that matters. The Texas can-do, entrepreneurial spirit and transparent manner of communication is crucial to the trust clients place in us. We work to build long-term relationships and staff engagement that meets our clients' objectives, not the firm's.
