Baker Botts is a leading international law firm, established for over 175 years and has 14 offices globally. Since opening its doors in 2005, the firm’s Dubai office has provided extensive legal counsel to clients with business interests in the region.
Baker Botts doubled the size of its Dubai-based team to enhance their ongoing efforts to build a broad portfolio of capabilities across the Middle East. Their clients, largely Fortune 100 organizations, recognize Baker Botts for their collaborative approach and professionalism.
For their recent expansion project, Baker Botts appointed Gensler, their global architectural partner, to design the new premises in line with their global guidelines. Refurbishment works were undertaken in the existing office, with expansion works covering approx. 800 sqm of additional workspace.
The new office needed to be high end and to reflect their core values, heritage, and expertise in the region. It also needed to be seamless in terms of look and feel with their existing office space. Refurbishment works for a number of executive offices took place for the firm’s partners, associate partners and managing partner. The expansion works included the development of workspace to house additional executive offices, multi-purpose meeting rooms, large-scale conference rooms with video conferencing facilities and a new reception area.
