HOUSTON, May 9, 2022 - Legal publication Lawdragon featured two Baker Botts lawyers, Travis Wofford and Ted Paris,  in its “500 Leading Dealmakers in America”  list, highlighting their advisory work in corporate matters across various geographies and industries including oil & gas, renewable energy and technology.

Travis Wofford, who has made the list for the second year in a row, is Chair of the Corporate Department in Houston, Vice Chair of the Global M&A Practice, and member of the Securities Opinion Committee. His practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, shareholder engagement and corporate advisory work. He regularly counsels clients on fiduciary duty, sustainability and corporate governance matters, including controlling stockholder and related party transactions, for which we has been recognized by, among others, the National Association of Corporate Directors’ “Directorship 100: Governance Professionals and Institutions” (2022).

Ted Paris advises clients in a wide variety of industries, including oil and gas exploration and production, oilfield services and other energy-related industries. Drawing on his substantial experience, including over 25 years with Baker Botts and prior experience in public accounting, he helps guide clients through some of their most critical and complex life-cycle transactions, including initial public offerings, follow-on offerings, financings, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and business dispositions.

Lawdragon’s list was created through a curation of submissions and original research into the lawyers leading the biggest and most impactful deals of the prior year, the publication noted. The nominations were vetted by an editorial board of peers.
