Global cloud-based firm Rimon P.C. has opened an office in Austin, its second in Texas, hiring Reed Smith employee benefits and executive compensation counsel Craig Tanner as a partner.

The office is the second of Rimon’s planned trio of offices in major cities in Texas, as the firm joins a number of Big Law firms that have launched in the Texas capital city this year. Those firms include Gunderson Dettmer Stough Villeneuve Franklin & Hachigian; Kirkland & Ellis; and Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan.
