Firm Overview:
Baker Botts is a leading international law firm with 13 offices located in the US, Europe, Russia, the Middle East and China. Based on its experience and knowledge of its clients’ industries, the firm is recognised as a leading firm in the energy and technology sectors. Baker Botts lawyers work on a range of complex legal issues, including global energy and renewables projects, intellectual property, commercial litigation, corporate transactions, environmental compliance challenges and tax disputes. As one of the largest law firms in the United States, the firm has worked on behalf of clients in more than 100 countries, and the firm regularly consults on matters that have a local, regional and global impact.

Main Areas of Practice:

Global Projects Department:
Global projects lawyers provide clients with in-depth legal advice in the world’s major energy-producing regions. Areas include: oil and gas, project development and finance, real estate, energy regulatory and international trade. These focus on energy and infrastructure projects in both development and operational stages, as well as advisement in respect to regulatory, import/export, finance and commercial business transactions often required after these projects commence.

Intellectual Property Department:
The firm offers a national and international practice including patent litigation, patent procurement, patent licensing and due diligence. Other areas of practice include strategic IP counselling, trademark acquisition, trademark and copyright litigation, franchise and distribution and other intellectual property transactions. With the skill set to protect and advance clients goals, combined with technical knowledge and industry experience, firm lawyers are able to work with clients facing complex technology issues.

Litigation Department:
Litigators handle commercial, securities, professional liability, product liability, patent, white-collar, antitrust, international arbitration, environment and energy litigation, as well as the appellate issues that arise from these matters. The firm’s representations reflect the broad litigation practice, with matters ranging from wins in high-profile cases to precedent setting victories. The firm has one of the largest and most diverse environmental practices. The firm’s lawyers excel in courtrooms across the United States and internationally, helping resolve client’s legal problems in a variety of industries.

Corporate Department:
Corporate lawyers handle complex matters, advising clients on a full range of corporate, securities and financing matters, including public offerings and private placements of equity and debt for both issuers and underwriters or placement agents. In addition, the firm’s corporate lawyers have extensive experience in private equity and venture capital fund transactions and specialised financing in domestic and international contexts.

Tax Department:
Comprised of four sections, including income tax, state tax, employee benefits and executive compensation and private clients services, the tax department provides advice to clients across the spectrum of business activities and investments. Lawyers develop plans and structures to achieve clients’ objectives while minimising the impact of federal, state and international taxes. The firm also features a substantial employee benefits and executive compensation practice, and provides counselling to individuals, families and entrepreneurs on wealth transfer and succession planning tax issues.
