Vedder Price is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Dallas, Texas. The expansion into Texas continues the strategic growth of the firm into strong, growing markets that require the firm’s existing skill sets and help support its current client base.

Leading the new office will be Finance & Transactions Shareholder William A. Kummerer, a member of our Board of Directors and former Corporate Practice Area Leader. Mr. Kummerer, who has been with the firm since 2005, will serve as Managing Shareholder and will be responsible for managing the strategic growth of the office. He will join Shareholder Aaron S. Turner, who began with Vedder Price in Dallas on January 15.

“The Dallas market is one of the most vibrant metro-areas in the country, and expanding our reach to Texas has been part of our long-term strategic plan,” said Michael A. Nemeroff, President and CEO of Vedder Price. “We are confident that this expansion into Dallas will enhance the ability to serve our clients, and we expect this to continue for years to come given the growing prevalence of the Dallas area and Texas generally for businesses.”

With more than 80 lawyers, the Finance & Transactions practice area is recognized as a leader in middle-market M&A and private equity transactions, and works with many of the world’s leading debt providers in all parts of the capital structure, supporting a wide variety of transactions while also providing trusted corporate counsel and governance to clients’ businesses. The firm plans to augment the Finance & Transactions practice area in Dallas through additional targeted lateral hires with a focus on core practice areas, market expansion and the legal needs of the firm’s clients.

“This is an exciting time for the firm and our finance and transactions practice as we expand our capabilities into Texas,” said Mr. Kummerer. “Dallas serves as a hub for technology, real estate, manufacturing and other key industries in which we have clients. I look forward to working with Aaron and my future Dallas colleagues in developing our Texas presence and serving our clients with the best-in-class customer service they are accustomed to receiving from Vedder.”

The Dallas office address is: Vedder Price P.C., 100 Crescent Court, Suite 700, Dallas, Texas 75201, +1 (469) 895 4800. It is the eighth location for Vedder Price, which includes locations across the United States and in London and Singapore.
