HOUSTON, October 18, 2013
-- In the October 18, 2013 issue of the Houston Business Journal, senior reporter Deon Daugherty interviews Firm Managing Partner Andrew Baker about his career at Baker Botts and his thoughts and observations about the Firm, Houston and the energy industry.

Prior to delving into questions, Daugherty notes that our managing partner “has never worked anywhere else.”

“Indeed,” she continues in her opening of the interview article, “the man who took Texas icon Dr Pepper, now known as part of Plano, Texas-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc., to the public markets and split off Houston engineering giant KBR Inc. from oilfield services major Halliburton Co., grew up a mile away from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

Baker said, in response to a question about the firm’s energy practice, “We have deep experience, judgment, and we’re really excited about the trends we see — hydraulic fracturing, shale, (master limited partnerships) — because it creates great opportunities for our clients, for our city, our state, this part of the country and the country as a whole.”
