Partners at Andrews Kurth Kenyon and Hunton & Williams have agreed to merge their firms and operate as Hunton Andrews Kurth, a 1,000-lawyer firm with offices in 15 U.S. cities and another five located outside the United States.

Hunton Andrews Kurth, which will officially launch on April 2, will have about 300 lawyers in Texas, divided among offices in Houston, Dallas, Austin and The Woodlands—a planned community about 30 miles north of Houston that is popular with many U.S. corporations—as well as more than 200 lawyers in Richmond, Virginia, and more than 150 lawyers each in New York City and in Washington, D.C.

The combined firm’s revenue is expected to exceed $750 million for the first year—a figure that could catapult the merged firm to the Am Law 50. The deal combines strength in both arms of the energy practice, linking Andrews Kurth’s oil and gas practice with Hunton & Williams’ power industry practice. Firm leaders said the combined firm will be one of a few firms that can provide high-caliber services to both arms of the energy sector.
