Meet Everett New
Everett graduated summa cum laude from the Texas Tech University School of Law in 2004, and is admitted to practice in all Texas State and Federal courts. Before that, he spent four years (including his first year of law school) as a police officer in Lubbock, Texas, and almost five years managing offices for two national retail service companies where he won awards for customer service and innovative leadership. After law school Everett joined a prestigious Dallas-based firm where he cut his teeth on the Enron litigation and continued working in the areas of corporate governance, fiduciary duty matters, securities litigation, mass-tort litigation, medical malpractice defense, and SEC and NASD investigations. He then transitioned to handling more business litigation, before taking a position in-house with a half-billion-dollar automotive captive finance company.
After five years as an in-house counsel, Everett turned his experience and expertise to helping startups, small, and medium sized businesses by providing a cost-effective alternative to an in-house counsel. He has extensive experience in counseling entrepreneurs as they form and build their businesses, offering a graduated fee structure to make sure client dreams can become client realities. He advises musicians, authors, artists, audio/video production companies, and others in the entertainment industry as they navigate the pitfalls of negotiating and contracting with recording companies, publishers, promoters, studios, distributors, and one another. Additionally, Everett has served as counsel for plaintiffs and defendants alike in numerous state and federal lawsuits involving a wide variety of claims.
Everett also serves on the Vestry of St. John’s Episcopal Church and the Board of Trustees of St. John’s Episcopal School. He previously served in leadership positions with the Board of the Museum of International Cultures and on the North Dallas High School Alumni Board. He is a member of the Dallas Bar Association, and served as a Director for the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers. He is a Fellow of the DAYL Foundation, was a member of the 2007 DAYL Leadership Class, and was named a Texas Rising Star in Law and Politics Magazine in 2010 and 2011. While in-house, he served on the Alliance Business Synergy Team and on the Corporate Diversity Committee. He has also been a featured presenter at conferences on e-discovery and entrepreneurial leadership.
