That technical depth puts us a step ahead across a broad spectrum of cutting-edge issues such as big data and the Internet of Things, machine learning and artificial intelligence, blockchain/cryptocurrency, autonomous vehicles, and many others – and how these new technologies impact our technology, life sciences, and energy clients. 

Our lawyers help clients litigate IP disputes through trial and final appeal, procure patents and other IP rights, and handle all manners of IP transactions.

  • We were recently named a 2023 Law360 IP “Practice Group of the Year.”
  • Our lawyers have more than 120 active patent cases in district courts throughout the country, the International Trade Commission, and the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. Baker Botts has the experience and breadth to meet any client’s needs. We are routinely ranked among the busiest patent litigation firms among general practice firms.
  • At the PTAB, our PTAB Trials practice has handled over 600 matters and we rank 2nd in volume among all general practice firms.
  • We acquire, protect and monetize your IP. In the last three years, our IP team filed over 7,500 U.S. and international patent applications spanning every technical area.

Lawyer diversity is also one of our core strengths: 47% of our IP department is diverse and 60% of new partners added in the last three years are diverse. Baker Botts has been named one of the top 10 firms for leadership and IP diversity & inclusion by ChIPs the last two years.
