Law360: Baker Botts Earns ‘Energy Group of 2010’ Award


HOUSTON -- The editors of Law360 have cited Baker Botts as one of five “Energy Groups of 2010” based on the size, number and complexity of energy deals completed during the year.

“Whether it was navigating regulatory issues for clients, negotiating major corporate transactions, or helping clients win approval for new energy infrastructure projects, the five firms Law360 selected shined for their willingness to take on complex and even game-changing matters,” Law360 noted in a story announcing the winners.

Walt Smith, managing partner of Baker Botts, said the recognition from Law360 underscores what clients have known about the firm for more than a century. “We have an unmatched depth of understanding about the energy industry, and we know how to help energy companies attain their objectives,” Smith said.

In conjunction with the award, Law360 published a feature story on the energy practice group at Baker Botts. The story is available here.
