Miami firm Greenberg Traurig, which has offices in Houston and Dallas, will open an office in Austin, Texas, on Aug. 1 with seven lawyers, including three who are leaving Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld‘s Austin office.

"Part of our strategy is to be in the political capitals of the jurisdictions."
