Arnold Porter enters the Houston market
Arnold & Porter has launched an office in Houston, Texas. The new office will be led by Thad Demaris, who formerly served as managing partner of the Hogan Lovells office in Houston. Demaris is followed by two more Hogan Lovells lawyers.
Tom Milch, Arnold & Porter’s Chairman, said: “We see significant opportunities to build in Houston based on our existing strengths and our experience in the region. We are targeting growth of practices in Houston that help us continue to provide sophisticated service to clients, in the energy sector and elsewhere, in the most cost-effective way possible.”
The Houston market has attracted numerous biglaw firms in the last year, including K&L Gates, Reed Smith, Husch Blackwell and Katten Muchin Rosenman.
