Sloan, Managing Partner of Thompson & Knight. “We will offer our experience in the issues common to start-up businesses, including intellectual property, technology, corporate, labor, and other areas of counsel that will help further the goals of these pioneering companies.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with an incredibly accomplished law firm like Thompson & Knight to continue in our mission of surrounding our community with all of the best and most qualified resources they need to grow their businesses,” added Brad True, Managing Director at The Cannon.
