Morgan Lewis’ second office in Texas opens

International law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius opened its second office in Houston and added Brady Edwards and Sandra Thourot Krider from Edwards, Burns & Krider LLP, a litigation boutique, as partners to its new office. After the Dallas office, which was opened in 2004, the firm expanded to Houston. Morgan Lewis has more than 1,300 lawyers in 22 offices spread all over the globe.

Francis M. Milone, Morgan Lewis’ chairman, said that the Houston office will greatly benefit in litigation and other practice areas from the duo’s collective experiences and expertise. Morgan, Lewis also expanded its product liability practice with the addition of Steven Luxton in its Washington, D.C. office, who earlier practiced with Edwards, Burns & Krider. Edwards and Krider will be joined by three more lawyers from their earlier firm.

Edwards, whose practice covers both Texas and the rest of the country, concentrates on the full range of product liability and toxic tort matters. He specializes in the defense of serial mass tort litigation. He is one of the founding figures behind the firm Edwards, Burns & Krider, highly regarded for its legal expertise in product liability, toxic tort and commercial litigation in the Houston area. Krider, another name partner in the earlier firm, practices in commercial litigation, product liability, and insurance recovery, and specializes in complex briefing and appeals.
