The growing number of out-of-state firms with offices in Dallas expanded by two on Wednesday as Am Law 200 firm Hinshaw & Culbertson and trial firm Manning Gross + Massenburg each launched offices.

A group of Akerman financial services lawyers, led by litigators Charles Townsend and Michael McKleroy, joined Chicago-based Hinshaw as partners to open the Dallas office. Others are senior counsel Walter McInnis, Bryan T. Brown, Matthew Lindsey and Jessica A. Riley and associate Taylor Hennington.
