Dentons announces that it will open an office in Houston, underscoring the Firm’s commitment to serving energy clients in the US and worldwide. The Firm currently represents the world's most significant energy companies in all aspects of their business and in all major energy markets. The new office, Dentons’ 16th US location and 79th globally, builds on the recent combination of Fraser Milner Casgrain, Salans and SNR Denton, leveraging the Firm’s worldwide presence across the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Middle East, Central Asia and Africa to serve more than 400 existing clients in Houston.
“Our clients increasingly require a truly global law firm to support their business objectives," said Elliott Portnoy, Dentons Global Chief Executive Officer. "As a gateway to the world’s most important energy markets, Houston will draw Dentons lawyers from around the world to focus on our clients’ most complex and sophisticated needs."
In addition to energy, Houston and its surrounding areas are home to a thriving base of industries, including medical and biomedical technology, global trade and aeronautics. To support these sectors and others, Dentons will advise clients on matters relating to litigation, intellectual property, regulatory and real estate, among other practice and sector strengths.

Dentons is a global firm driven to provide a competitive edge in an increasingly complex and interconnected marketplace. It was formed in March 2013 by the combination of international law firm Salans LLP, Canadian law firm Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP (FMC) and international law firm SNR Denton. Dentons is built on the solid foundations of these three highly valued law firms. Each built an outstanding reputation and valued clientele by responding to the local, regional and national needs of a broad spectrum of clients of all sizes—individuals; entrepreneurs; small businesses and startups; local, regional and national governments and government agencies; and mid-sized and larger private and public corporations, including international and global entities.
Dentons' clients now benefit from approximately 2,600 lawyers and professionals in more than 75 locations spanning 50-plus countries across Africa, Asia Pacific, Canada, Central Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Russia and the CIS, the UK and the US who are committed to challenge the status quo and offer creative, dynamic business and legal solutions.
