Garrett Gibson represents a variety of clients, including some of the world's largest companies, in complex construction and business disputes across the country. He has tried multiple jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations to final judgment and has handled numerous appeals in state and federal courts, including two successful arguments before the Supreme Court of Texas, both of which resulted in 9-0 reversals of the lower court decisions.

He has significant experience representing owners and contractors on large-scale construction disputes across a range of sectors, including alternative energy projects, residential facilities, pipelines, power plants, and gas processing facilities. He has handled complex claims related to changes, delays and liquidated damages, project cost accounting, design and construction defects, and mechanics liens.

A considerable part of Garrett's experience also includes high-stakes shareholder and joint venture disputes, breach of contract claims, trade secret claims, noncompete disputes, fraud claims, and class action lawsuits. In addition to his litigation and trial work, he has experience conducting sensitive internal investigations for companies in the energy, construction, finance, manufacturing, and tech sectors, including investigations concerning alleged FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) violations, accounting fraud, and violations of company policy.
