Baker Botts promotes three in IP

Baker Botts has promoted three intellectual property attorneys to partner, as part of a round of 11 partner promotions.

Brian Johnston, Jennifer Nall and Jeremy Taylor will all be promoted to partner, working in the firm’s Dallas, Austin and San Francisco offices respectively.

Johnston works in all areas of intellectual property law with an emphasis on patent litigation. He has practiced before the US district courts on behalf of both patent owners and accused infringers, as well as at the US Patent Trial and Appeal Board in inter partes review proceedings.

Nall also focuses on patent litigation, mainly in high-technology cases. She has experience pre-trial, trial, post-trial and appeals proceedings and has practiced before the district courts, the federal circuit, the US International Trade Commission and the Supreme Court.

Taylor covers patent litigation in the communications, networking, software and semiconductor industries. He works in all aspects of litigation, from pre-filing investigations and strategy, through to jury verdicts and appeals.

Andrew Baker, managing partner of Baker Botts, commented: “This is an outstanding class of lawyers, who are key to our success, as they represent the future leadership of our firm.”

He added: “They showcase our diversity, represent the communities in which we work and live, and highlight our ongoing commitment to providing our clients with the highest level of service.”
