Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is a law firm created by the 2018 merger of two preeminent firms, each more than a century old: Hunton & Williams and Andrews Kurth Kenyon. With 1,000 lawyers in the United States, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, the firm serves clients across a broad range of complex transactional, litigation and regulatory matters.
The combination brings together two internationally preeminent energy practices, uniting a tier one oil and gas practice with a tier one power practice. It also integrates two deep and diversified corporate and finance practices, strengthening already robust capabilities in capital markets, private equity and structured finance. The firm now has one of the largest full-service litigation practices in the country, with particular depth in the key litigation markets of Texas, California, Florida and the Mid-Atlantic.
Hunton Andrews Kurth brings together multiple widely recognized industry-leading practices, including privacy and cybersecurity, intellectual property, environmental and P3, public finance and infrastructure. Both legacy firms have received recognition and accolades in the league tables and rankings outlets for their work in these, and other, practice areas.
