Baker Botts launches second California office
Baker Botts is opening a second office in California, not too far from its current Palo Alto office. The new office will be located in San Francisco. Real estate partner Patricia Stanton, who has been partner-in-charge in the firm’s Dallas office, will come to San Francisco to head the new office.
Joining Stanton in San Francisco will be IP litigation partners Bryant Boren and Eliot Williams, trial partner Kevin Sadler and corporate partner Brian Lee. All of them will serve clients for the San Francisco and Palo Alto offices. Kirkland & Ellis IP partner Jeremy Taylor is joining the San Francisco office as special counsel.
The firm is targeting around six full and half-time lawyers to base in the new office.
