Clifford Chance has made history by becoming the first “magic circle” firm to establish a presence in Texas.
The firm has opened a ten-partner office in Houston, specifically aiming to cater to the energy market.
Clifford Chance has recruited seven partners from competitors, including Latham & Watkins, while also transferring three partners from its New York and Paris offices.
The firm anticipates further growth in Houston in the upcoming months, coinciding with the thriving business landscape beyond traditional energy in Texas.
The move aligns with the firm’s focus on both traditional and renewable energy sectors, including carbon capture technologies, clean hydrogen, batteries, and new nuclear projects.
