Farrar & Ball founders recognized following string of legal victories
HOUSTON – After building one of the region’s hottest trial law firms and earning a string of record verdicts against tire, automotive and product manufacturers, Farrar & Ball, LLP, founders Kyle Farrar and Wesley Todd Ball have been singled out for a rare combination of professional honors.
Mr. Farrar and Mr. Ball are joining a select group of lawyers who earned selection to the National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40, which recognizes the country’s leading attorneys age 40 and younger. The two courtroom litigators also previously have been named to the exclusive Texas Super Lawyers list, an honor seldom extended to practitioners under age 40, and the Texas Rising Stars list, which specifically recognizes top lawyers under age 40. The three individual honors are awarded by invitation only based on peer nominations and comprehensive editorial reviews.
These recent professional honors speak to the maturity and leadership of Mr. Farrar and Mr. Ball, who founded Farrar & Ball in 2005 and have distinguished themselves as leaders of a growing and successful law firm. In 2014, they created a partnership with respected Florida attorneys Bruce Kaster and Skip Lynch to form Kaster Lynch Farrar & Ball focusing on tire tread defect litigation. The two attorneys have earned more than $100 million in client verdicts and settlements during the past year in cases filed against major automobile and tire manufacturers.
The Farrar & Ball trial team earned one of the largest verdicts in the nation against Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. related to a deadly rollover crash involving an SUV that was carrying six passengers. The $32.8 million verdict that ranked among the largest in the U.S. by VerdictSearch in 2010 has since been upheld on appeal.
Farrar & Ball also has prevailed against numerous Fortune 500 companies, including Michelin North America Inc., Ford Motor Co., General Motors, Sumitomo, Hankook Tire, Honda Motors, Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire and numerous other corporate defendants.
Farrar & Ball, LLP, is dedicated to helping those injured due to corporate neglect. The firm has developed extensive knowledge of tire and vehicle failures, and also represents clients in pharmaceutical tort litigation, product liability claims, personal injury cases and business disputes.
