About Us

Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP is a full-service business law firm offering sophisticated representation to a range of clients: individuals and commercial entities alike. We provide comprehensive services, as necessary, to ensure that our client’s objectives are met. Unlike many of our competitors, a Houston corporate lawyer at our firm can capably handle transactional, advisory, and litigation-related matters for each of our clients.


A Houston Business Attorney at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval is Ready to Help 

Here at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, our team of attorneys boasts decades of experience working on complex transactional and litigation-related matters affecting a broad range of clients with commercial interests, from individual shareholders to large, multinational corporations. 

We understand the unique challenges associated with such disputes, and how to navigate them successfully (and in a manner that accomplishes our client’s stated objectives).  This practical, results-oriented mindset drives every facet of our legal representation.  Quite simply, we are laser-focused on working towards the best possible solution for the client. 

Between them, the founding partners of Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP have successfully tried scores of cases to verdict.  Each Houston business attorney at our firm has handled matters from the most complex intellectual property disputes and ERISA/bad faith insurance litigation, to the most common contract and employment disputes from beginning to end as counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants, recovering and saving millions of dollars for clients over the years.

Our Competitive Advantages 

Sophisticated Legal Representation 

Over the years, our lawyers have helped clients navigate a variety of complex matters relevant to their commercial interests.  Our experiences have positioned us well to handle sophisticated issues on behalf of the client — for example, we routinely engage with regulatory bodies and government investigators, and have had demonstrable success in securing favorable results for our clients through negotiating with these (and other) stakeholders. 

We provide in-depth representation at every stage of a given legal matter.  Our business is not dependent on a high volume of clients.  Instead, we invest the time and resources necessary to properly engage each client.  This commitment ensures that we have information (and the insight) necessary to provide sophisticated, tailored representation. 

End-to-End Counsel 

At Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, we have a wide range of transactional, advisory, and litigation-related experience.  Though we primarily handle litigation, we have also assisted clients in developing compliance programs and navigating complicated regulatory procedures and frameworks. 

The significant breadth of our client work has given us an eagle-eyed perspective of a legal matter.  We are often able to identify potential conflicts before they arise, and preventatively advise our clients in accordance with our insights.  Thanks in large part to our transactional and advisory work, we are more tuned in to the “commercial interests” of our clients.  In our role as litigators, we strive to achieve the client’s overall objectives (taking into account their goals from both a legal and business perspective). 

Practice Areas

Alternative Fee Arrangements

When a client is sued or is forced to consider filing a case, the first question that’s frequently asked is, “What will this cost me?” Lawyers are almost always required to estimate the amount of time each case-related task will take, how many people will be required to staff the case, what the hourly rates are, and how it all adds up. Given the nature of litigation and the number of tasks, the total cost can be unpredictable at the outset. This can put unwanted pressure on the client to take on additional financial risks (beyond the consequences of the commercial matter at-hand). Depending on the complexity and novelty of the case, a standard, open-ended hourly fee arrangement can create budget issues that interfere with the client’s commercial interests.

We believe that flexible fee offerings are critical to effective representation in the commercial context, particularly with respect to clients who are faced with a limited budget and are involved in a murky, uncertain dispute.

At Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, we project the cost of representation from the very beginning of the engagement process, and work closely with our clients to determine a reasonable budget for the matter at hand. We offer a variety of fee arrangements that clients may find more suitable than the standard, hourly approach. Whether that means taking a case on contingency, a flat fee, a hybrid, or some other creative fee approach, each Houston business attorney at our firm works to explore ways to reduce the stress and displeasure associated with businesses’ most dreaded expenditure: having to pay lawyers.
