Reed Smith has been serving clients in the Houston area for decades and, much like the city itself, has grown into new geographic areas and expanded to serving new industries over the years, to meet new client demands. Just as Houston is a key operational location for many of Reed Smith’s clients, our Houston office is a linchpin in Reed Smith’s global network.
Our Houston lawyers add transactional and litigation experience to the firm’s acknowledged global strengths in a number of industry sectors, including energy and natural resources, finance, life sciences and health care, and media and entertainment. From our office in downtown Houston, we provide a range of legal services, covering corporate, finance, commercial litigation, private equity, product liability, derivatives and futures law, oil and gas law, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, insurance recovery, labor and employment, and real estate.
Houston is an important international energy hub, and our office has a strong energy and natural resources practice. We represent companies large and small, international and local, in a range of transactional, litigation and regulatory matters across the upstream, midstream and downstream segments. Our Houston lawyers have diverse but complementary practices, and almost all of them have worked with clients in the energy industry. We offer services to clients across the energy lifecycle, from those involved in the extraction and production of oil and gas and/or minerals, to those in the business of transporting and trading commodities. We also work with companies that serve the energy market, from oil field services providers, to banks and other investment companies.
Houston lawyers have been recognized both nationally and locally in various publications, including, but not limited to, Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, and Chambers. In addition to focusing on their practices, our lawyers are active members of the Houston community, serving on the boards of a variety of local charities, volunteering in a multitude of community organizations, and placing a firm focus on providing pro bono services.
