A 75-year relationship built on mutual trust and confidence

CIC Group, Inc. and its family of wholly owned subsidiaries operate in the heavy industrial manufacturing and construction sector. CIC's commercial and industrial subsidiaries specialize in the manufacture, maintenance, and repair of equipment primarily for the crude oil, natural gas, coal, and other energy industries. Its largest subsidiary is Nooter/Eriksen, which manufactures and supplies heat recovery steam generators for combustion gas turbines worldwide. Nooter Construction Company, another large subsidiary, is a heavy construction contractor serving the refining, petrochemical, pulp and paper, and power industries. Wyatt Field Service Company, another subsidiary, is a premier heavy mechanical contractor, serving the petroleum refining and petrochemical industries, with a dominant market share in the Gulf Coast region. The parent holding company, CIC Group, is 100% employee-owned.

Outside General Counsel

Lewis Rice has served as general counsel for CIC Group and its subsidiaries for over 75 years. The substantial legal services we provide include litigation, employment and labor, corporate, intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, tax, and real estate.

75-Year Relationship

Lewis Rice's representation of the CIC Group companies traces back to the late 1930s, when the Firm began providing legal services to the founding business, the "John Nooter Boiler Works Company." That entity later changed its name to Nooter Corporation, which remains one of CIC Group's primary subsidiaries to this day. Over the many intervening decades, company leadership naturally has changed many times. Likewise, the attorneys of Lewis Rice working with them have changed. Yet the attorney-client relationship built on mutual trust, respect, and confidence has endured. Lewis Rice is proud to proclaim the CIC Group family of companies as its oldest and most loyal client relationship.
