Squire Sanders (US) LLP
From its office in Houston, Squire Sanders serves a growing number of regional, national and international corporations. Anticipating the need to serve clients headquartered or operating in Texas, the US Southwest and worldwide, we opened the Houston office in 1997 and have seen its practice grow to serve energy, chemical, technology, manufacturing and industrial clients in a wide array of matters, but primarily in energy law, construction law and litigation.
