HOUSTON, March 30, 2012 -- Law360 editors have selected Baker Botts partner Scott Janoe, for the third consecutive year, as a “Rising Star,” placing him among the Top 5 lawyers across the country under the age of 40 in the environmental practice area.
In the article highlighting Janoe’s selection, Law360 editors note his concept of balance within his cases and his career saying he “has not limited himself to one area of environmental law, but instead has found success in everything from litigation and compliance counseling to corporate transactions and bankruptcy-related matters.”
Janoe’s “highest-profile work to date,” Law360 editors said, was when he acted as lead environmental counsel for Asarco LLC during its Chapter 11 bankruptcy, overseeing the environmental claims and day-to-day compliance issues at 75 sites across the U.S. and Canada for the copper miner, ultimately guiding it through $6.5 billion in environmental claims.
