Community

It’s the right thing to do.

We believe in giving back to our communities. We volunteer and donate time and resources to hundreds of organizations. Our lawyers and staff are active board members and leaders within their communities.

Baker Botts is involved in several local schools and education programs. We partner with schools, Partners in Education Programs and A Community for Education or (ACE) to tutor elementary school children and serve as mentors to students who need positive role models. We have helped increase test scores, assisted families from these volunteer schools during the holidays, and provided students with opportunities to learn about the legal system.

We help build houses for those in need through Habitat for Humanity and the Buildable Hours program. We raise money and participate in various walks/runs such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the American Heart Association and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The firm regularly supports women and minority bar associations and other organizations that promote diversity in the legal profession, and many of our lawyers are members of, and serve in leadership positions in such organizations. We participate with various Bar Associations, groups that specifically support women and minorities and those that support access to legal services for under-represented constituents.

In addition to our involvement with charities, Baker Botts is a long standing supporter of the arts. Arts organizations are at the forefront of cultural progress; they enrich our cities with innovative and inspiring performances and exhibits.

Involvement with our communities and organizations brings valuable perspectives, experiences and talents to the firm, allowing us to be more creative, effective and ultimately successful in the practice of law and service to our clients.
