The Houston office, which opened on 3 January 2017, established the firm's first office in the USA when HFW merged with leading Texas-based energy and marine firm Legge, Farrow, Kimmitt, McGrath & Brown LLP, a firm with whom we have been successfully collaborating for several years.

This is a significant strategic development for the firm, underlining the fact that Houston is an important geographical market for HFW and its clients, being a key touchpoint for several of the firm’s chosen sectors, including energy, marine and insurance in particular.
