In 1973, Baker Botts was one of the first national firms to establish a permanent Washington- based office. The office was enhanced in 2001 with the addition of Miller, Cassidy, Larroca & Lewin, a renowned litigation boutique firm that expanded our litigation practice and enhanced our national reputation in white collar criminal defense. In 2011, 40 award-winning global antitrust lawyers joined the Washington office, making our antitrust competition practice one of most renowned in the United States.

Today, our Washington office provides a full range of legal services, including lobbying, advice on governmental affairs, appellate, antitrust, corporate and securities, energy, environmental, intellectual property and technology, international, litigation, project development, tax, telecommunications and white collar crime. Our lawyers represent foreign governments and private clients throughout the world.

Many of our lawyers have worked in the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the federal government. This experience base allows us to advise clients using first-hand knowledge and perspectives of the government’s counter parties. This insight also provides our clients with a keen understanding of the various elements of policy formulation and implementation as related to enforcement initiatives, rulemaking and other federal procedures. The broad capabilities of our team allow us to respond quickly to any challenge, including formulating effective crisis responses for clients facing major challenges associated with today’s reporting environment.

The Washington office was recognized in the most recent Chambers USA/District of Columbia section for its work in the Corporate/M&A Private Equity, Environment and Litigation categories. 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.
