Clark Hill, Strasburger & Price Announce Merger

April 10, 2018

Firm Will Have 25 Offices In U.S., Ireland And Mexico

Expansion Will Enhance Client Value, Extend Industry Reach And Create a Firm with Nearly 650 Attorneys

DETROIT & DALLAS – Clark Hill, an international, full-service legal and professional services firm with more than 450 lawyers in 17 offices, and Strasburger & Price, a highly respected firm with nearly 200 lawyers in 9 offices in Texas, New York, Washington, D.C. and Mexico City, today announced plans to merge effective tomorrow, April 11, 2018.  Together the two firms will have more than 200 years of combined history providing legal services to clients.

“Strasburger’s core values and culture are well aligned with ours and its commitment to the highest levels of client and community service is just as strong,” said John Hern, CEO of Clark Hill.  “This merger aligns perfectly with our strategy of expanding into high growth markets which is also where our clients are moving and where they need our services.”

The combined firm will have nearly 650 lawyers with 25 offices in 11 states, the District of Columbia, Ireland, and Mexico and will be known as Clark Hill except in Texas, where it will operate as Clark Hill Strasburger.

This combination will strengthen and enhance Clark Hill’s resources in the booming energy, oil and gas, construction, retail, tax and healthcare sectors in Texas where Strasburger has offices in Austin, Beaumont, Collin County (Frisco), Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. It will provide Strasburger with a significantly enhanced national platform with resources in many more U.S. financial and business centers.

“Both firms already have deep regional roots and together have a national reach in the key industries and practices driving the global economy,” said Daniel L. Butcher, Managing Partner of Strasburger. “This combination will expand our ability to help clients take advantage of business opportunities and resolve their legal challenges.”

Founded in 1890, Clark Hill is an entrepreneurial firm that provides business, government and public affairs, and personal legal services to clients in the U.S. and abroad from offices coast to coast and in Dublin, Ireland.

Clark Hill has been in expansion mode since 2013 beginning with a merger with Thorp Reed & Armstrong, adding 100 lawyers. The firm completed another significant combination in 2017 with Morris Polich & Purdy LLP adding nearly 100 lawyers and four offices in California and Nevada.
