Fort Worth, Texas’ Kelly, Hart & Hallman has leased space and is scheduled to open a Houston office in the next few months, says Dee Kelly Jr., the firm’s managing partner.

Kelly Hart Houston partner J. Clark Martin, who retired from Vinson & Elkins on Jan. 1, says among those planning to join Kelly Hart as Houston partners are Vinson & Elkins partners Max Hendrick III and David Hedges Jr., who are close to V&E’s mandatory retirement age of 67, and former Enron Corp. general counsel James V. Derrick Jr. Derrick was a V&E partner before he became Enron’s GC in 1991. He retired from Enron in March 2002, three months after the Houston energy company declared bankruptcy.
