HOUSTON, March 2011 -- Law360 editors have selected Baker Botts L.L.P. partners Scott Janoe (Environmental) and Aaron Streett (Appellate) as “Rising Stars,” placing them among the Top 5 lawyers across the country under the age of 40 in their respective practice areas.
Commenting on Janoe’s client work since joining the firm in 2000 -- and being elected partner in 2008 -- Law360 editors noted in an article announcing his selection that “Janoe’s tenacity and versatility have placed him among the firm’s go-to environmental lawyers.” Evidence of Janoe’s legal skills in representing clients can be found, Law360 noted, in “a high-stakes citizen suit in Puerto Rico” in which Scott successfully helped Esso Standard Oil Co. win.
In the article highlighting Streett’s selection, Law360 said Streett -- elected partner this year -- has a “proclivity for courtroom presentation and a broad knowledge of constitutional law” that has helped him score victories in complex cases. Arguing for defendants in a putative class action with the potential to result in more than $1 trillion in damages, “Streett convinced an appeals court to dismiss the case in a ruling that has had widespread influence,” Law360 noted.
