Global 200 law firm Withers, building a network of U.S. offices for its private client practice, continues growth by moving into Texas with a Houston office launched by Winstead lawyer Kevin Keen, who seeks to bring his estate planning and tax practice to an international firm.

Withers, which has been in the U.S. market since 2002, will add more lawyers in Texas with the “specific skill set” the firm needs, said Jason “Jay” Dinwoodie, who is divisional chief executive officer of the private client and tax team.
