As the head of the Posey Law Firm, PC, in Austin, Texas, attorney Jake Posey represents Fortune 500 companies and other highly respected businesses. In his practice, Jake Posey’s work as an attorney centers on government relations and helping business leaders enact change effectively through the Texas legislature.

While rapidly changing technology can have many positive effects for businesses, slowly adapting laws can present challenges. Workplace technologies can change workplace habits quickly, changing legal needs just as fast. This requires business owners, especially those in the technology sector, to be proactive in how they handle legal matters.

While employment torts, or civil allegations of workplace wrongdoings, are relatively rare, legal professionals have observed a marked increase in the number of torts being brought against previous employers. The burden of proof is high, and always falls on the plaintiff in such tort cases, but the trend underscores the need for following best practices and relying on quality legal representation.

Over the course of his career he has earned recognition from a number of sources, including being selected to Texas Super Lawyers – Rising Stars seven years in a row. Outside of his work as an attorney, Jake Posey enjoys coastal fishing.

Given the size of Texas, fishing enthusiasts can find plenty of top fishing options. The Texas Coast offers world-class saltwater fishing year-round. For the nearshore fisherman there are 1000’s of square miles of shallow bays and hundreds of miles of Gulf beach. For the offshore fisherman, the Texas Coast provides easy access to the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

In addition to coastal fishing, Texas also offers some fantastic freshwater opportunities as well. One of Jake Posey’s favorite spot is fly fishing on the Guadalupe River. Just a short drive from Austin, Guadalupe River gets a healthy stock of rainbow trout from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department every winter. Since most of the trout won’t survive the warmer temperatures after spring, fishers are encouraged to catch what they can. The area’s forested valleys and hills also add to the experience.
