We are very pleased to congratulate our client Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease LLP on its newly completed combination with the former Schwartz Junell Greenberg & Oathout firm (“SJGO”) in Houston, Texas. On January 5, 2015, nine attorneys (including six partners) and additional professional staff from SJGO joined Vorys’ team in Houston, almost doubling the size of Vorys’ Houston office.

Already a highly respected full-service law firm with almost 400 attorneys across 7 offices, Vorys finished 2014 boasting top-drawer national clients in every major practice area, and the firm was already being increasingly recognized as a major player in the national energy law arena. The addition of the tremendously regarded group of practitioners from SJGO is sure to increase Vorys’ recognition in the Houston legal market. Since the majority of the incoming SJGO attorneys have energy law-related practices, their integration will bolster Vorys’ national regard in the energy law field even further as well. Best wishes to Vorys and its entire Houston team for 2015 and beyond!

Marek White and I, together with Cathy Wilde and Helen Cooper from our sister company Legalpeople, were delighted to work with Vorys and SJGO in brokering this combination. Read more about Vorys’ recent Houston growth at http://www.vorys.com/newsevents-news-876.html.
