From Houston, McGuireWoods represents Texas, national and international clients that include some of the top energy companies in the world and Fortune 500 leaders. Our energy attorneys handle corporate and securities matters, with a focus on the energy and technology industries, including multimillion- and multibillion-dollar mergers and acquisitions of public and private entities. They also represent developers, contractors, owners and financiers of power plants and other energy production facilities in transactional energy infrastructure matters.
The Houston office’s strengths include commercial and securities litigation, advising major companies and their officers, directors and special litigation committees in derivative and class action lawsuits. Examples include representing investment professionals and others in criminal investigations, and high-profile executives in state and federal suits and congressional, regulatory and criminal investigations. And our international arbitration group is led by one of our Houston partners.
Our team continues to expand representation across industries in areas including labor and employment and IP litigation and patents.
In alignment with McGuireWoods’ core value of community service, our Houston lawyers and staff give back through pro bono work, board leadership, sponsorships, fundraising and volunteering for groups such as Ronald McDonald House and Child Advocates.
After Hurricane Harvey in 2017, McGuireWoods’ Houston office took immediate action assisting flood victims. And when a fire gutted Lone Star Leal Aid’s downtown Houston headquarters, McGuireWoods provided office space for LSLA lawyers and staff to help them maintain essential services and address the challenges of rebuilding hurricane-impacted low-income communities.
