Powell is a partner at Fisher Broyles in Houston. She is an experienced trial lawyer who represents clients in disputes in all types of settings: state and federal courts; bankruptcy courts; and arbitral tribunals, both domestic and international. She also helps clients mitigate and avoid risk before formal disputes arise. Prior to joining Fisher Broyles, she spent many years with the firm Jackson Walker. Lisa is very involved with the Texas and Houston Bar Foundations and is currently co-chair of the Houston Network of Women. At the Law School, Lisa is the immediate past president of the Law School’s Alumni Board, and now serves on its executive committee, where we continue to benefit from her counsel. During her twelve years on the Alumni Board, we have always been able to count on Lisa to give thoughtful counsel and guidance to students and to provide steady and measured analysis to our board and its activities.
In 2020, Powell was a receipient of an Indiana University Maurer School of Law Distinguished Service Award.
