Lewis Brisbois’ Houston Office Adds 3 Attorneys

Houston, Texas (June 26, 2017) – Lewis Brisbois is pleased to welcome Partners Andrew Pidgirsky, Cleve Glenn, and W. Earl Touchstone to its Houston office. Pidgirsky and Glenn will be part of the Corporate Practice while Touchstone will join the Commercial Litigation Practice.

The addition of the three attorneys marks a significant momentum of growth in the Houston office. Pidgirsky and Glenn will be key in helping the Corporate Practice deepen relationships with existing clients from coast to coast, while Touchstone’s experience will help cement Lewis Brisbois’ dominance in the Houston litigation market.

“We are very excited to have Andrew, Cleve, and Earl join our Houston office. Their legal acumen will provide an added dimension to the Houston office as we continue to provide full-service capabilities in Texas and the Gulf South,” said Houston Managing Partner David Oubre.

Pidgirsky has more than 25 years of experience advising clients ranging from public corporations to mid market companies on various corporate matters, including in the areas of oil and gas, energy, mergers and acquisitions, finance, technology and international law.

“Joining Lewis Brisbois allows me to expand my practice domestically and internationally, and to offer a broader set of legal services to my clients from the over 1,100 lawyers in all of the firm’s 42 offices. I look forward to assisting in the growth of our transactional practice in Texas, nationally, and internationally,” Pidgirsky said.

An attorney and CPA, Glenn focuses his corporate practice on mergers and acquisitions, private securities offerings, corporate finance, and general commercial transactions. He counsels clients across a broad range of industries, including energy, healthcare, entertainment, and financial services, and he represents real estate developers and EB-5 regional centers in private placement offerings and related corporate work. In addition to his transactional practice, Glenn is an active commercial litigator, representing clients in matters involving contract disputes, shareholder disputes, and business torts.

“I am delighted to join Lewis Brisbois. The firm values my unique skill set, and gives me the flexibility to service my clients’ transactional and commercial litigation needs without having to shift significant amounts of work outside the firm or to different practice groups,” Glenn said.

Rounding out the trio of new additions to the Houston office is Touchstone, an experienced trial lawyer focusing on commercial litigation, product liability, oil field and industrial accidents, employment, and other complex litigation.

“Lewis Brisbois’ quality legal representation and national platform provide an excellent opportunity for my clients. In addition to providing flexibility in my practice, the firm also has a great sense of collegiality,” said Touchstone.
