Expansion to extend industry reach and create firm with nearly 650 attorneys
Clark Hill, an international, full-service legal and professional services firm with more than 450 lawyers in 17 offices, and Strasburger & Price, a highly respected firm with nearly 200 lawyers in 9 offices in Texas, New York, Washington, D.C. and Mexico City, have merged effective April 11, 2018.
Together the two firms have more than 200 years of combined history providing legal services to clients.
“Strasburger’s core values and culture are well aligned with ours and its commitment to the highest levels of client and community service is just as strong,” Clark Hill CEO John Hern said in the release. “This merger aligns perfectly with our strategy of expanding into high growth markets which is also where our clients are moving and where they need our services.”
The combined firm has nearly 650 lawyers with 25 offices in 12 states, the District of Columbia, Ireland, and Mexico and will be known as Clark Hill except in Texas, where it will operate as Clark Hill Strasburger.
This combination aims to provide Strasburger with a significantly enhanced national platform with resources in many more U.S. financial and business centers.
“Both firms already have deep regional roots and together have a national reach in the key industries and practices driving the global economy,” Managing Partner of Strasburger, Daniel L. Butcher, said in the release. “This combination will expand our ability to help clients take advantage of business opportunities and resolve their legal challenges.”
Strasburger has Texas offices in Austin, Beaumont, Collin County, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, along with offices in New York and Washington, D.C. and, as Strasburger & Price S.C., in Mexico City.
Clark Hill has more than 450 attorneys currently based in 17 offices across the United States and in Dublin.
