Beirne, Maynard & Parsons Acquires Lemle & Kelleher

In a press release from the law firm of Beirne, Maynard & Parsons, L.L.P., the firm announced that it has merged with the law firm of Lemle & Kelleher, L.L.P. Beirne, Maynard & Parsons is based in Houston and focuses on civil litigation. Lemle & Kelleher is based in Louisiana.

The merger increases the presence of Beirne, Maynard & Parsons in the Gulf Coast while also expanding its abilities in commercial transactions, securities, and white-collar defense while enhancing its strong litigation practice, specifically in the areas of energy, environmental, employment, commercial, bankruptcy, transportation, and maritime law.

Brit T. Brown, the managing partner for Beirne, Maynard & Parsons, said, “This is a very exciting time for our two firms and for our clients. We have combined skilled litigation and commercial transaction attorneys while strengthening our international reach and presence along the Gulf Coast.”

Brown noted that the firm has multiple client relationships along the Gulf Coast, which is what required the firm to find a way to increase its presence in the area. Lemle & Kelleher is based in New Orleans, but also has an office in Baton Rouge. The firm is one of the oldest major law firms in the state of Louisiana, dating back to the 19th century.
