DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Munck Wilson Mandala’s litigation section was honored by Texas Lawyer this past week as the Litigation Department of the Year in the general litigation/midsize firm category. William A. Munck, MWM’s managing partner, was also honored as a Diversity & Inclusion Champion, and corporate associate Tasha Schwikert, was honored as a lawyer On the Rise. These awards were announced during the virtual Texas Legal Awards presented by Texas Lawyer, an American Lawyer Media publication.

Each year, Texas Lawyer honors attorneys who have made a remarkable difference in the Texas legal profession, whether in shaping the law, achieving outsized results for their clients, or assisting those in need of legal services. The honorees have had extraordinary careers and are considered impact players in the Texas legal community.

MWM’s litigation team makes a formidable opponent in the court room, often rivaling Am Law 100 firms with significantly larger litigation teams and winning many landmark cases, including two Texas Hall of Fame verdicts. Thomson Reuters, Best Lawyers in America©, D Magazine, and other publications frequently honor and recognize MWM’s litigators, both associates and partners, for their outstanding legal work.

In the category of Diversity & Inclusion Champion, Munck was nominated for MWM’s involvement in two women’s empowerment events that were held in North Texas. The events focused on panel discussions and keynotes about societal issues that affect women and minorities.

In the category of On the Rise, MWM’s Tasha Schwikert was nominated for her advocacy work. As a former Olympic gymnast, Schwikert became an advocate for institutional change within USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee. Her passion motivated her to attend law school in her late 20s and she now serves as co-chair of the special committee for over 500 Larry Nassar survivors. Schwikert and her sister Jordan are among those survivors.
