Careers

Lateral Lawyers

Adding experienced lawyers to our firm in various practices is part of a comprehensive talent management program at Baker Botts.  As clients and their demands change and grow, so does our need to respond to them with increased depth and breadth of our skilled legal team across the globe.

Many of our lawyers have joined Baker Botts as laterals, a testament to both the opportunities provided and our commitment to their continued professional development in the form of on-the-job training, in-house instruction from partners and outside consultants, a robust mentoring program and an in-depth, annual formal evaluation process.

We have implemented the Associate Attributes Model, which establishes four progressive levels, each with its own key expectations, skills and attributes.  Instead of following an inflexible lockstep, each lawyer can develop at a personalized pace.  Our model also ensures associates gain the requisite skills and experience to deliver superior client service at every stage of their careers.
