Eric Thiergood Joins Kean Miller in The Woodlands, Texas

Kean Miller, a 157-attorney full-service law firm in Texas and Louisiana, announced the addition of Eric R. Thiergood, Sr. as a partner in its office in The Woodlands, Texas. Eric joins the Kean Miller team, having come from The Strong Firm P.C. in The Woodlands. The addition of Thiergood is the next step in Kean Miller’s ongoing expansion into Montgomery County. Kean Miller also has offices in downtown Houston and in six locations in Louisiana.

Mr. Thiergood’s practice focus is corporate transactional work including mergers and acquisitions; private capital raises; entity selection, structuring, formation, operation, and dissolution; and commercial financing (both lender and borrower side). He also regularly handles large commercial real estate and commercial office condominium projects (buying, selling, leasing, and developing) and other general corporate and contract matters. Thiergood is fluent in Spanish, and he uses this fluency when working with his Spanish speaking-international clients.

Eric was a part of The Strong Firm P.C., for nearly 13 years where he built a solid reputation in both the business/legal community and the charitable/philanthropic community of The Woodlands, including serving on the boards of Montgomery County Youth Services (Yes to Youth); The Montgomery County Community Foundation; and the Montgomery County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Mr. Thiergood is excited about the opportunity to help grow Kean Miller’s office in The Woodlands by utilizing the full array of legal services and the tremendous resources now available to his clients and the community through Kean Miller. Thiergood remarks, “I have been at the same firm for 13 years, so this is obviously not a move that I made lightly. Having access to an expanded legal services platform, a broader and more diverse client base, top quality firm resources, the firm’s true commitment to work-life balance for its attorneys and staff; and the tremendous administrative and “back office” support that Kean Miller offers, coupled with their targeted and deliberate expansion into The Woodlands market, all factored very heavily when I evaluated this opportunity with Kean Miller."

Linda Perez Clark, the firm’s Managing Partner adds, “We are absolutely dedicated to making The Woodlands office of Kean Miller one of the top full-service law firms in The Woodlands as well as the remainder of Montgomery, Harris, Liberty, and Fort Bend counties. Adding Eric to our stellar roster of legal talent is part and parcel of this growth strategy.”
