McGlinchey Stafford is pleased to announce that Thomas Anastos has joined the firm’s Enterprise Litigation and Investigations group as an associate in the Houston office. Thomas focuses his practice on representing the insurance, transportation, construction, and energy industries in litigation.
“I am very pleased to welcome Thomas to our Houston office,” said Matt Manning, Managing Member of the firm’s Houston office. “His varied experience litigating complex matters complements the service offerings we provide to clients nationwide.”
Thomas is the fourth new attorney hire in McGlinchey’s Texas offices since November.
Thomas’ prior work before joining McGlinchey allowed him to gain experience in all aspects of the litigation lifecycle. He obtained summary judgments for clients in several matters, including a summary judgment under Section 82 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code in a products liability case. He has also prepared, presented, and examined witnesses in a jury trial. In addition to his work defending civil litigation matters, in a previous role, Thomas represented plaintiffs in cases involving commercial-vehicle accidents, workplace injuries, premises liability, first-party insurance litigation, and personal injury matters.
“Thomas’ understanding and passion for the law make him a great fit at McGlinchey,” said Dan Plunkett, Chair of the Firm’s Enterprise Litigation and Investigations Group, which has brought on 21 new attorneys since May 2022. “His experience representing both plaintiffs and the defense affords him insight into opposing counsel’s motives and rationale, which helps him plan a strong defense for our clients.”
Thomas received his J.D. from South Texas College of Law Houston in 2018 and earned a bachelor’s degree in justice studies from Arizona State University, cum laude, where he was a five-time Dean’s List honoree. He was a semifinalist and won the Second-Best Brief Award in the Spurgeon Bell Memorial Moot Court Competition. Thomas also served as managing editor for the Corporate Counsel Review, published by the Texas State Bar.
McGlinchey’s litigation practice spans the firm’s 17 offices and serves a variety of industries, including corporate, construction, financial institutions, real estate, commercial lending, insurance, heavy industry, manufacturing, aviation, admiralty, and maritime, chemical and energy, automotive, and chemical and mechanical engineering. The firm’s litigators are well-versed in financial services and insurance, class actions, labor and employment, cybersecurity, creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, government investigations, and intellectual property matters.
