Baker Botts is a full-service, leading global law firm, recognized for our understanding of the industries we serve.
Our firm has a long, distinguished tradition of service to our clients, tracing our history back to the 1840s. During the earliest days of Houston, Baker Botts represented the burgeoning industries of cotton merchants, brokers and railroads.
Today, Baker Botts has offices around the world. Since the 1840s, we have served leading industries, organizations and individuals, while staying at the forefront of emerging technologies.
We have the experience, the knowledge and the people to solve our clients’ most significant legal challenges. For more than 175 years, we have demonstrated an unrelenting commitment to excellence.
As a result of the firm's long history of international practice, Baker Botts has developed an extensive network of correspondent counsel at the most prestigious firms in virtually all commercial centers of the world. Our relationship with these firms enables Baker Botts to provide our clients with facilities and legal capabilities on a global basis.
We believe in giving back to our communities. We volunteer and donate time and resources to hundreds of organizations. Our lawyers and staff are active board members and leaders within their communities.
Baker Botts, in partnership with the Houston Bar Association, hosted a LegalLine open to the public where lawyers answered legal questions on a range of Hurricane relief issues. The firm also hosted a Hurricane Harvey response training, with speakers from Lone Star Legal Aid, Houston Volunteer Lawyers, and the Houston Bar Association.
Baker Botts is involved in several local schools and education programs. We partner with schools, Partners in Education Programs and A Community for Education or (ACE) to tutor elementary school children and serve as mentors to students who need positive role models. We have helped increase test scores, assisted families from these volunteer schools during the holidays, and provided students with opportunities to learn about the legal system.
