About the Firm

Although Locke Lord was founded in 2007, Locke Lord Liddell and Sapp can trace its roots back to the later part of the 19th century.

Established with the sole purpose of assisting clients and providing the best possible solutions, Locke Lord Liddell and Sapp developed a tradition in excellence and diligence in its early days. Lord Locke currently employs more than 600 highly qualified attorneys who provide legal services in a number of areas of law.
