Thompson & Knight's Mexico Presence Helped Lure Houston Project Finance Lawyer
Seeking a firm with strong oil and gas and Latin America practices, project finance lawyer George Humphrey joined Thompson & Knight as a partner in Houston, coming from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe. Humphrey, who helped launch Orrick's Houston office in January 2016, moved to Thompson & Knight on Monday. … After talking to a number of national and international firms, Humphrey said Thompson & Knight was the best fit for his practice because of its prestige in the market and its "super-strong" energy capabilities. Another plus is its presence in Mexico, with offices in Monterrey and Mexico City. "Another real attractive thing is all the Thompson & Knight lawyers I’ve ever run into have been good people," he said, noting that some former Andrews Kurth colleagues are now at his new firm.
