2011 Who’s Who Legal: Baker Botts L.L.P. Maintains ‘Leading’ Status in Annual Survey

HOUSTON, June 27, 2011 -- Researchers for the 2011 edition of Who’s Who Legal: The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers again placed Baker Botts L.L.P. on its list of the world’s leading law firms. Of more than 2,000 firms evaluated and listed in this year’s publication, only the top 70 firms earned recognition as world leaders based on their “breadth and depth of talent.”

On the individual lawyer front, researchers placed 70 Baker Botts lawyers in this year’s book, compared to 41 lawyers highlighted in the 2010 Who’s Who Legal survey publication.

In addition to touting the Firm’s oil and gas section -- including recognition of our growing international capabilities and credentials in Hong Kong, London, the Middle East and Russia -- researchers noted that the environmental practice “received great praise” from and provides “a wealth of expertise” to its clients. They also commented that the Firm has a “first rate” project finance practice.

The Firm’s antitrust and competition practice was noted as strengthened by the addition of a large group of antitrust lawyers in the Washington office. This team of lawyers contributed significantly to the Firm’s profile in the book and is regarded by clients as “top notch” and “world class,” according to the researchers.
