In 2018, Strasburger & Price, LLP merged with Clark Hill PLC.
With locations in Texas, New York, DC and even Mexico, Strasburger may have its feet in several legal markets—but its home base remains in the Lone Star State, where it was founded over 70 years ago. The firm serves clients of all sizes, from Texas startups and mid-sized companies to Fortune 500 corporations.
Partners through Thick and Thin
Founders Henry Strasburger and Hobart Price were classmates at the University of Texas and both graduated from law school there in 1921. Price--reputedly armed with a photographic memory--had no problem finding a job at a top Dallas law firm soon after graduation, and he encouraged his firm to take a chance on his friend Strasburger. The firm accepted Strasburger, and he proved himself a worthy bet, eventually becoming one of the most highly-regarded trial lawyers in Texas. In 1939, Strasburger and Price decided to found their own firm in Dallas.
Timing was not on the firm's side, however. Within a year, six of the firm's eight partners were summoned away to fight in WWII, leaving Strasburger and one other attorney to keep the firm going. They made it through the struggles of wartime, and the firm began to grow and thrive. Initially founded as an insurance defense firm, Strasburger expanded its practice areas in 1958 to include tax, business transactions and estate planning. Its growth continues today, with a range of practice areas and over 200 attorneys. Strasburger was ranked as the fastest-growing law firm in Texas and as the fifth fastest-growing firm in the country by Law.com.

Several Strasburger attorneys have been named to Best Lawyers and 19 were included in Thomson Reuters' 2012 Texas Rising Stars list.
