Firm Earns IP Litigation Department of the Year Award From Texas Lawyer



HOUSTON, August 19, 2013 -- The firm’s Intellectual Property practice earned the 2013 Intellectual Property Litigation Department of the Year award from Texas Lawyer editors in the publication’s inaugural litigation practice awards program released today (August 19, 2013).

In an article reviewing the firm’s intellectual property practice, Texas Lawyer stated: “Attorneys in Baker Botts’ intellectual property practice not only grasp complicated technology but can explain it in terms simple enough for jurors to understand.”

Baker Botts was also noted for its work representing Halliburton, in a case where the jury found Weatherford had infringed a patent and awarded Halliburton more than $35 million in royalties and damages.

Additionally, editors also wrote about the team that defended the CME Group. In November 2012, the New York court granted the CME defendants’ motion for summary judgment, agreeing with CME that their encoding and decoding systems do not analyze content of a data field or data block to determine its type, as Realtime had argued.
