The Hundred Years Firm

1917 was a momentous year: the Royal Bank of Canada took over Quebec Bank, Emperor Nicholas II of Russia abdicated his throne thus ending the Russian Empire, and the United States called off its search for Pancho Villa. But did you know that 1917 is also the year that our very own Vinson & Elkins was founded? Not quite as old as the False Claims Act – but almost!

Yes, just one hundred short years ago, Judge James A. Elkins and William A. Vinson put their heads together in Houston, Texas, and formed the law firm that now serves as the home of the Lincoln Law Blog. This week we as a firm are celebrating that centennial anniversary, commemorating one hundred years of providing client service and cutting edge legal analysis. In those hundred years, V&E has grown from a single Houston office to numerous offices across four continents, spanning virtually every practice group and area of law. This experience includes, of course, that of the False Claims Act and our white collar litigation practice in general.

In honor of this grand anniversary, we are putting our pens down for a day to celebrate. In the meantime, we encourage you to take a gander at the history of the firm and stay tuned for when we resume regular updates next week.
