Greenberg Traurig Texas Continues Growth; Adds Real Estate Of Counsel Richard A. Crow

Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP is strategically expanding its Real Estate Practice in Texas with the addition of Richard A. Crow as of counsel in its growing Houston office. Crow is Board Certified in Commercial Real Estate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and joins the firm from Clark Hill PLC.

"We entered Texas almost 20 years ago, to become a true Texas firm on our global platform," said Richard A. Rosenbaum, the firm’s Executive Chairman. "The real estate industry has always been a strategic focus of Greenberg Traurig since our earliest days and this and other enhancements of our top tier global practice in Texas remain a key priority."

“We are thrilled to continue to add talented team members like Richard to our Houston office,” said Shari L. Heyen, managing shareholder of Greenberg Traurig’s Houston office. “The addition of Richard is a direct reflection of the firm’s commitment to recruiting and enhancing our presence in Texas. I look forward to being part of the incredible work he does here and in the Houston community.”

Crow focuses his practice on commercial real estate matters, including acquisition, development, financing, leasing, and disposition. He represents a range of clients including quick service restaurant chains, land developers, office and retail landlords and tenants, real estate investors, and one of the largest public junior college systems in the United States. Crow has also represented high-profile Houston-based restaurateurs in connection with real estate leases and land acquisitions.

“With a growing real estate market in Texas, it’s imperative that our team stands ready to serve increased client demand,” said Kent Newsome, chair of the firm’s Texas Real Estate Practice. “I am fully confident that Richard’s experience will bring added value to Greenberg Traurig’s Real Estate Practice, the Houston office, and the firm as a whole. I am excited to work alongside him and see first-hand the contributions he will make.”

“I can’t wait to start the next chapter of my career working alongside the amazing and skilled team at Greenberg Traurig,” Crow said. “Greenberg Traurig’s Real Estate Practice is well-regarded and will provide me with resources needed to better serve clients.”

Crow will be a prominent member of the Real Estate Practice in Houston, which includes Shareholders Denis Braham, Grant Cohen, and Kent Newsome. He has received recognition from The Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers magazine, and Houstonia Magazine. He also serves as treasurer of the Real Estate Probate and Trust Law Section of the State Bar of Texas and as a fellow for the American College of Real Estate Lawyers. Crow earned his J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center.

In addition to Crow, the firm’s three offices in Texas have recently added strategic hires in various core practice areas, including Shareholders Ashley Aten (Real Estate), Steven E. Bartz (Corporate), Denis Braham (Real Estate), Adam H. Laughton (Health Care & FDA); Vernon L. Lewis (White Collar Defense & Special Investigations), and Austin R.
