Baker Botts has been an integral part of Houston’s business community since 1840 when the firm’s founder, Peter Gray, launched his law practice in the Republic of Texas. As Houston’s economy developed, so did the scope of the firm’s legal services.
Our Houston office has maintained the heritage of community leadership established by the founders of the firm. Baker Botts is rooted as a pillar institution in the city’s business landscape, and our lawyers have played pivotal roles in landmark cases and transactions involving clients in a multitude of industries.
Our lawyers are experienced in a wide range of areas, including corporate, environmental, global projects, intellectual property, litigation and tax. We work for leading companies in a variety of industries: banking and finance, energy, manufacturing, media, pharmaceuticals, real estate, technology, telecommunications and transportation.
Houston is often referred to as the energy capital of the world, and Baker Botts is recognized as one of the city’s leading law firms with connections to key international energy markets in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Energy is an integral component of the work our lawyers provide clients, but the depth of our legal counsel covers a broad array of practice areas including corporate, environmental, global projects, intellectual property, litigation and tax.
Many of our Houston-based lawyers have earned designations from third-party sources, such as Chambers USA and The Legal 500. We pride ourselves on the team approach we bring to every engagement, and we believe our collaborative approach improves the results we earn for our clients.
