Maynard Nexsen Grows Litigation Practice in Texas


Two Shareholders Join Austin Office

Maynard Nexsen, a full-service law firm with 24 offices across the United States, is pleased to announce the addition of two shareholders practicing in South Texas. Lisa Poole Alcantar and Raj S. Aujla add decades of litigation experience in insurance, employment and managed care.

“We are thrilled to have Lisa and Ray join us in Texas,” said Tom Butler, head of Maynard Nexsen’s litigation section. “Our thriving practices in insurance and employment will benefit from their years handling ERISA, non-competes, coverage, and more in Texas and across the country.”

Lisa Alcantar practices managed care, employment, and commercial litigation. Leveraging years of high-stakes federal and state litigation and arbitration, Lisa assists clients in resolving disputes before they blossom into full-blown litigation. Acting as outside general counsel, Lisa helps clients to negotiate contracts, draft standard forms, and implement policies and procedures to avoid future disputes.

Raj Aujla’s wide range of litigation experience has found him defending national health plans on claims implicating ERISA preemption matters of first impression, to handling personal injury claims in some of South Texas’s most plaintiff-friendly venues. Regardless of the nature of claim or the venue, he brings the same personal attention and drive to each case, for every client.

Maynard Nexsen proudly serves clients from 24 offices in the following markets:

  • Alabama: Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery
  • California: Los Angeles, San Francisco
  • Florida: Miami, Orlando
  • Georgia: Atlanta
