As Clifford Chance continues expanding its energy and infrastructure capabilities in the U.S., the firm has brought on Ty’Meka M. Reeves-Sobers and Marcia Hook as partners from Kirkland & Ellis, who will join the firm’s Houston and Washington, D.C., offices, respectively.

Reeves-Sobers arrival comes just months after Clifford Chance launched its Houston office in June, marking the elite U.K. firm’s third U.S. office. With the addition of Reeves-Sobers, the Houston office will now have 12 partners after initially starting out with seven.
