Willkie Farr & Gallagher to open Houston office
Willkie Fahr & Gallagher has announced plans to open an office in Houston, its first new office in the US in more than 30 years. Corporate partner Bruce Herzog will be joined by Michael Piazza, hired from Bracewell & Giuliani, and Angela Olivarez, hired from Jones Day.
Expansion into Houston is typical for firms pursuing energy work. Willkies says it has a strong client base in Texas already and will look to expand its services for transactions related to energy.
There is currently no official launch date.
