Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP's Overview

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.

Commitment to Our Clients

Our sector focus gives us a perspective on the substantive issues most important to our clients. Our lawyers have a depth of experience in industries such as energy, financial services, real estate investment and finance, retail and consumer products, and technology, among others.

Our mission is simple: To provide the highest quality legal services, together with practical legal and business counsel to allow our clients to assess risk and reward, and act accordingly. Because our clients pursue opportunities globally, we work seamlessly across jurisdictions to bring together exactly the right industry, legal and practice experience.

Commitment to Our Communities

While we focus on providing the highest quality legal services, we also take great pride in our commitment to community and client service. Because we believe that we are better—and serve our clients better—in diverse teams, diversity and inclusion are at the core of our values. At Hunton Andrews Kurth, we remain focused on giving back to the communities we serve, and intend to continue our extensive pro bono work. We are confident in the belief that the practice of law, first and foremost, is a service to society.

Growing from historic roots in Texas and Virginia, Hunton Andrews Kurth now has more than 150 lawyers each in Houston, New York, Richmond and Washington. Other locations in the United States include Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Norfolk, Raleigh, San Francisco and The Woodlands.
