Porter Hedges LLP is a Houston-based law firm founded in 1981. We are one of the ten largest Houston-based firms and among the largest Texas-based firms.

What sets us apart from our national and regional law firm competitors? Clients tell us that it is our attentive, efficient service delivered by partner-led teams of lawyers with a depth and breadth of experience and skill typically found only at much larger firms.

Porter Hedges' practices and lawyers are consistently ranked by various publications and outlets. The firm's Energy: Oil & Gas Transactional practice received national recognition and the firm's Banking & Finance, Bankruptcy / Restructuring, Construction, Corporate / M&A, Environment and Insurance Practices were also recognized in the State of Texas by Chambers USA in 2012. In addition, 14 attorneys were named by Chambers USA as "Leaders in their Field." Eighteen of our partners were selected for inclusion in Texas Super Lawyers and eight were named "Texas Rising Stars" in 2012. Eighteen of our partners are listed in the 2011 Best Lawyers in America list. Many of our associates and partners serve on numerous local and state bar association sections.

Our make-it-happen approach to legal matters is based on a thorough understanding of each client's business, responsiveness to each client's needs, and the identification of practical and cost-effective solutions to problems as they arise. This is the essence of the Porter Hedges commitment—to produce for each client the optimal result as efficiently as possible.

We understand that our clients expect and deserve personal attention and prompt response from their lawyers.

Because of our lawyers' extensive knowledge and experience in many industries, our clients often turn to us not only to address their immediate legal needs but also to help develop long term strategies for success.
