Alongside our colleagues in the UK, the Middle East and Australia, in particular, we have developed substantial experience in commercial and public projects, ranging from transportation to commercial office buildings. Our focus on managing both “front-end” and “back-end” issues in construction and engineering projects enables you to employ consistent and coherent strategies throughout the lifecycle of a project.
Our internationally renowned, business-savvy corporate practice advises public and private companies, private equity and venture capital firms, emerging companies and entrepreneurs in Houston and across the US on the full spectrum of corporate transactional services.
