Blank Rome launched its Houston presence when it combined with Abrams, Scott & Bickley in June 2011, adding leading corporate and litigation attorneys with significant energy industry experience. The Firm continued its growth in Houston with the addition of the maritime lawyers of Bell Ryniker & Letourneau in August 2013, strengthening its maritime practice—the largest in the country—in a key market for maritime law. With the addition of the intellectual property attorneys from Wong, Cabello, Lutsch, Rutherford & Brucculeri L.L.P in June 2015, which significantly bolstered the Firm’s national IP practice and capabilities, Blank Rome has built a diversified presence in Houston, boasting great legal talent in a robust regional economy and critically important market for our clients.
Our Texas-based team works with our Blank Rome litigation attorneys in our offices across the United States, as well as our office in Shanghai, who handle a wide variety of civil, criminal, and administrative matters in state and federal courts, at both the trial and appellate levels. Our attorneys represent varied corporate, government, and individual clients on diverse litigation matters, including securities, commercial, intellectual property, toxic tort and products liability, maritime, employment, appellate, and white collar defense and investigations. Our Houston office also offers extensive experience and compelling opportunities to expand the Firm’s growing Asia practice.
