Chairman’s Letter

Letter from Our Chairman


I am excited to share news about a change to our firm’s structure that enables us to better address business challenges that impact our clients.

We have been operating as one firm with two groups – Litigation and Business – for more than three decades. This month, we divided the Business group into two practice areas – Real Estate and Corporate Mergers & Acquisitions – to accommodate client growth and reflect the strong market activity. These two groups work together with our Litigation group to serve our clients. Our approach has always been to deliver fully integrated legal services and that remains constant. Shareholder Blake Royal chairs our new Real Estate practice group and Shareholder Steve Kesten will chair the firm’s Corporate M&A group.

After two years of pandemic-related disruption, the commercial real estate market is gaining traction. According to the Greater Houston Partnership, Houston is the second most active market in the nation for real estate over the last decade. Activity in Houston’s commercial real estate market indicates that H-Town is evolving into a hub for digital technology, as well as for manufacturing and life sciences. It’s exciting to see the city gain recognition in these sectors.

We are also excited to welcome Adam Aschmann to our Real Estate group as Of Counsel. He brings over two decades experience in government and public affairs and in the corporate legal environment, including serving as Vice President & General Counsel in the real estate industry.

We are honored to help clients achieve their visions for the future of their businesses. The Association for Corporate Growth has named three of our client deals as finalists in the Fifth Annual Deal of the Year Awards. We enjoy guiding clients through the complexities of mergers and acquisitions and are proud to partner with them in these transactions.

Let us know if we can help in any of your long-term planning.
