Culture

At Baker Botts, our lawyers take great pride in their legal skills and all are expected to be exemplary professionals with consummate experience in their particular disciplines. We strive to provide an environment where all can fully apply their skills to help the firm excel in delivering legal services and understanding our clients’ most complex business issues.

We adhere to the highest ethical standards. We know that our reputation for high quality legal services and integrity is our most valued asset. We maintain an approach to our practice that enhances our ability to identify ethical issues as they arise, and we pride ourselves in having the fortitude to do what is right.

Our heritage encompasses more than 170 years. Providing excellent lawyering during that period has consistently given us the privilege of working on some of the most fascinating and important legal matters in the world. Our heritage creates a strong sense of stewardship and ensures that our lawyers and staff alike look at generations past and consider future generations when making decisions about our practice.

We believe in giving something back to the communities in which we live and work. We encourage our lawyers and staff to be actively involved in pro bono, charitable, diversity and other community activities because it helps them to develop as better people and professionals and because, quite simply, it’s the right thing to do.

Finally, we like each other, respect one another and enjoy working together in a collegial atmosphere. We believe this is reflected in the quality of our work and in the productive relationships we foster.

We are proud of our clients and the work we do for them. Our values and culture are very important to us.
