Asian markets have undergone a significant change in the past decade, particularly within the energy sector. As the region’s economy grew rapidly, China emerged as the world’s second largest energy consumer, which in turn drove the growth of the firm in Hong Kong. Today, Baker Botts is well suited to assist energy sector clients with their business and investment needs, not just in China, but across the Pacific Rim.
Baker Botts, a Registered Foreign Law Firm, has represented clients involved in major energy projects in Asia over the course of three decades. Since 2005, we have served as a regional hub, supporting our clients throughout the region. We advise both Asian based clients as well as global clients looking to invest in Asia.
Along with our emphasis on the energy industry, Baker Botts also provides corporate and private equity clients with cross-border mergers and acquisitions capabilities throughout Asia, with an emphasis on China. We also have considerable experience representing parties to international arbitration in the region including Hong Kong and Singapore.
Our lawyers have earned recognition from third-party sources. Chambers Asia, The Legal 500 Asia Pacific, Guide to the World’s Leading Energy Attorneys and the International Who’s Who of Oil & Gas Lawyers researchers ranked our lawyers for their work for clients in the energy and natural resources and projects practice areas. 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.
