Jones Walker Relocates Houston Office and Appoints Lara Pringle as Office Head
September 18, 2017

Jones Walker LLP announced today that the firm’s Houston office has relocated to 811 Main Street, Suite 2900, Houston, Texas 77002. The firm also announced the appointment of Lara D. Pringle as Office Head for the firm’s Texas offices.

Ms. Pringle, a partner in the Houston office, continues the tradition of female leadership in Texas for Jones Walker. She follows in the footsteps of two female leaders who began the firm’s Texas presence in 2001.

She was recently selected by Profiles in Diversity Journal as one of the publication’s 2017 “Women Worth Watching” and was named by Texas Lawyer in 2016 as one of the "Top Women in Energy.” The firm’s Houston office proudly boasts more than 50 percent female attorneys, a rate significantly higher than the statewide average of 35 percent female lawyers in the Texas State Bar. 

“I am honored and proud to lead our dynamic team of attorneys and staff in Houston,” said Pringle. “Our team has grown to more than two dozen lawyers since we first opened an office in downtown Houston more than 10 years ago. Our move to Main Street allows us to expand our top-notch team of attorneys and continue our outstanding client service model.” 

The firm’s Managing Partner, Bill Hines, said, “Houston is an area of growth for Jones Walker, and this move represents our commitment to the future of the city of Houston as well as to our clients and colleagues in the city.”  

Jones Walker has two Texas offices: Houston and The Woodlands. Houston is home to numerous Fortune 500 companies and thousands of energy-related firms. The attorneys in Jones Walker’s Houston and The Woodlands offices serve clients throughout Texas.
