Led by Partner-in-Charge Ken Bullock, Frost Brown Todd’s Houston office is perfectly positioned to deliver strategic legal and business support to both entrenched and emerging industries in the region. 

 

Strengths

Our Houston team was carefully put together to hit the ground running in this unique market. It is a diverse group with an established track record of successfully handling complex legal issues for a wide range of industries, from energy, oil and gas, real estate, and technology to health care, construction, and manufacturing. Our core group of seasoned trial lawyers and skilled transaction counsel, virtually all of whom have spent their entire careers in Houston, represent public and private companies, private equity groups, small businesses and entrepreneurs alike.

While offering the resources and reach of a full-service law firm, our Houston-based team is primed to counsel clients on complex legal matters ranging from mergers and acquisitions, tax, securities and financing to bankruptcy, labor and employment, and intellectual property. Further, our skilled trial team stands ready to immediately take on any high-stakes litigation.

 

Culture

Our Houston-based attorneys come from a range of backgrounds and skill sets, with prestigious clerkships, professional accolades, and degrees from top-ranked universities. What they share in common is a history of success and client-mindedness. With us, it’s not about individual egos — it’s about getting the best results. In every matter we take on, we collaborate across disciplines so each client gets the best thinking and solutions our team has to offer.

In litigation, our focus on strategy and preparation for victory in the courtroom leaves no room for inefficiencies. We understand the financial pressures our clients face in today’s business environment. We work lean because that is how we work best.

 

Community

Our attorneys play an active role in Houston’s philanthropic and civic life, serving as board members for local nonprofits and bar associations and as educators, mentors, frequent speakers in the community, and active participants in coaching and guiding youth sports. In recognition of our Houston team’s efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion within the legal profession and community at large, it was presented with the Houston Bar Association’s Diversity Award in the law firm category.
