Baker and Botts in the Development of Modern Houston

Baker and Botts in the Development of Modern Houston

by Kenneth J. Lipartitto, Joseph A. Pratt

Editorial Reviews

A chronicle of the 150-year history of Baker & Botts, as the authors chart its evolution from a 19th-century regional firm to a 20th- century national firm with an international clientele. Beyond an examination of many of the firm's high-profile clients and controversial cases, is a thoughtful look at the role of corporate law firms in economic development and their influence, in the courts and through lobbying, on public policy toward business.
