Firm Details

Houston Harbaugh, P.C. is a business law and litigation firm serving large national companies, insurers, privately-held businesses, healthcare organizations, banking institutions, employers, professional corporations and individuals. The firm ranks among the 100 largest law firms in Pennsylvania. Since its founding in 1975, the firm has earned great respect for its role in landmark litigation cases and major corporate and healthcare transactions. From multi-million dollar enterprises to start-ups, Houston Harbaugh helps businesses grow and thrive, comply with state and federal regulations, minimize risk, address unexpected crises, and face major life-cycle decisions in corporate transitions and litigation.    

The firm, its practice areas and its attorneys have been recognized by U.S. News and World Report “Best Lawyers’®  and “Best Law Firms” in numerous categories, as well as Pennsylvania Super Lawyers.  Its Corporate Practice has been selected as the winner of The Legal Intelligencer’s Best Law Firm Corporate Practices contest for the Midsize Firm category.   

In 2018, the firm expanded with the addition of Pittsburgh law firm Picadio Sneath Miller & Norton, P.C. The merger significantly bolstered Houston Harbaugh’s competitive position in the region’s legal community, specifically strengthening its litigation capabilities in the areas of business litigation, catastrophic injury claims, class actions, construction, energy, environmental, financial services, insurance defense, insurance coverage and bad faith, intellectual property,  pharmaceutical, products liability, toxic torts, trade secret, and non-compete litigation. The combination created a firm with practice areas that, in addition to litigation, include Corporate, Health Care, Employment and Labor, Environmental Law Consulting and Compliance, ERISA/Employee Benefits, Estates and Trusts, Landowner Oil and Gas, and Real Estate.  

Houston Harbaugh has built its reputation by responsively delivering effective solutions to clients that incorporate both legal and business strategies. It’s not just about the services the firm provides its clients, but how the firm treats its clients: with respect, fairness, honesty, cost-effectiveness, and by treating each client as if it is the only client.
