Lara Pringle is an accomplished lawyer with Jones Walker, focusing on the areas of business litigation, class actions, complex and multidistrict litigation, and toxic torts, as well as the ever-relevant pipeline work.

Pringle is not only driven by her work in finding creative solutions that meet her clients’ needs, she is also a proven leader within the firm and serves on the firm’s Attorney Development Committee. She is committed to her clients, the firm, and to various civic and charitable organizations that benefit her community.

In addition to her many responsibilities as Houston office head and firm partner, Pringle has served for more than 10 years as a Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo volunteer. She is a lifetime member of this charitable and educational organization, which elevates the standards of breeding and raising healthy livestock and farm products, and promotes and maintains research and educational funds throughout the industry.

Through the years, she has served on the Rodeo’s Merchandise, Transportation and International Committees, and enjoys being a part of an event that helps young people attend college and has great economic impact on the city where she lives.

Pringle is also involved with her alma mater, Texas A&M University, where she serves on the Dean’s Council’s Young Leader Advisory Board of Mays School of Business, advising students who are considering a career in law.

“The opportunity to work with and lead the attorneys in our Jones Walker Houston office is a privilege. There are so many terrific lawyers here,” Pringle says. “Throughout my career, I have benefited greatly from having experienced colleagues and friends take the time to invest in me with their advice and mentorship.”

Pringle advises younger colleagues that hard work is important. “Challenges are sure to come, but if you continue to persevere and do your best, things will work out. Also,” she adds, “be true to yourself.”
