Texas Law Firm Expands to China

Fulbright & Jaworski announced Thursday it has opened an office in Beijing.  It will be headed by the partner already running its Hong Kong bureau.  The new office will expand from 10 to 15 attorneys China_flag_2 soon by hiring more lawyers from China, and plans to service such firm clients as China National Petroleum Corp. and  International Finance Corp.  A report on the expansion can be seen in the Texas Lawyer, which further notes that some other big Texas law firms (Vinson & Elkins, Baker Botts, and Andrews Kurth) already have offices on the Mainland.  My guess is that F&J was the Houston law firm 'to be named later' in the original trade for Yao Ming.   [Alan Childress]
