Husch Blackwell announced Wednesday that it will soon be merging with Brown McCarroll, acquiring its first Texas offices—in Austin, Dallas and Houston—and about 65 more attorneys in the process.
The combined firm will have over 600 lawyers in 16 cities in the United States and London. The merger was approved Tuesday and is expected to take effect July 1, a Husch press release says.
“We welcome the opportunity to enter the vibrant Texas legal market with great attorneys who are well-known and highly respected,” said Maurice Watson, who serves as chairman of Husch Blackwell. “We are very fortunate to be adding to our firm this remarkable group of attorneys, whose great talent and experience will add significant depth to a number of our areas of focus.”
