Blank Rome is set to enter the Texas market in a more official way with the acquisition of 10-attorney litigation boutique Abrams Scott & Bickley in Houston.

The deal is expected to close June 30 and will add five partners to Blank Rome and give it a permanent office in the city. The firm has had a presence in Houston for about a year since it hired Joseph F. Speelman, a former in-house lawyer for the chemical firm LyondellBasell. Blank Rome hadn’t, however, had an official office in the city.
