Locke Lord's Texas roots are strong, and in Houston we have deep ties and a formidable presence.

We have been part of the Houston business, civic, arts and philanthropic communities since the early 1900s, which has led to long-standing and immeasurable relationships with clients. Our experienced and dedicated lawyers are leaders — in the courtroom, in the boardroom and in the community.

Our Houston office offers many strong practice areas, including bankruptcy, restructuring and insolvency, commercial litigation and dispute resolution, corporate and securities, environmental, finance and banking, government relations, health care, intellectual property, insurance and reinsurance, labor and employment, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, real estate and finance, SEC enforcement and litigation, tax and white collar/internal investigations. Our energy lawyers serve as trusted counsel to a broad range of companies from startups to multinational companies, both on domestic and international matters.

Fifteen Houston lawyers were recognized for excellence in Chambers USA 2021. Thirty-five of our Houston lawyers were recognized in the 2022 edition of The Best Lawyers of America®, and 10 were recognized in Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch. Nine Houston attorneys were named 2020 Super Lawyers® Texas Rising Stars. In addition, the Houston office was recognized with Metropolitan Tier 1 Rankings in the 2021 Best Law Firms survey by U.S. News – Best Lawyers®.

With our long history in Houston, we are not only committed to our clients but dedicated to help improve the community in which we live.
