Sidley Austin to launch in Houston, US

February 15, 2012 International law firm Sidley Austin is set to launch a new office in Houston. The office will be led seven partners hired laterally from other Houston firms including Baker Botts and Vinson & Elkins, and will focus on the energy industry.

There seems to be some considerable activity in the Houston legal Services market, with Baker, Donelson, Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz acquiring both Drucker Rutledge & Smith and Spain Chambers in the last four months.
