Baker Botts No. 1 in ‘Who Protects IP America’ Survey


Baker Botts landed at the top of the list of law firms Corporate America calls on for IP counsel in the latest IP Law & Business survey published in the magazine’s November 2006 issue.

Each year, the magazine’s editors ask in-house counsel at the Fortune 250 to name their “go-to” firms, specifically their primary IP litigation and patent firms.

This year, Baker Botts climbed into the No. 1 spot from No. 3 in last year’s survey.

“As this practice area expands in the coming months, our IP/Litigation team will remain on top of the latest issues and trends that could have an impact on our clients,” said Jerry Mills, the firm’s IP Department Chair. “It is one of our strengths as a major international law firm and what our clients expect of our lawyers.”

Litigation Department Chair Robb Voyles said: “The results of this survey are all about commitment to client service in the IP litigation area. Making certain we provide the best counsel and the strongest representation for our clients has always been and will remain our focus.”

In addition to earning the No. 1 spot in the Top IP Firm category in the magazine’s survey, Baker Botts tied for the top spot on the IP Litigators list and placed at No. 2 in the Patent Prosecutors category.

Baker Botts has more than 100 patent attorneys in five cities.
