Baker Botts has enhanced its global International Arbitration practice by adding highly regarded arbitration lawyers Edward Schorr and Andrew Behrman to its New York office. Schorr joined the firm as a partner and Behrman as a special counsel.

This enhancement of the arbitration practice in New York broadens the firm’s ability to provide clients access to skilled arbitration counsel in jurisdictions around the world. The firm’s arbitration practice has consistently earned high marks from ranking publications such as Chambers, Legal 500 and Who’s Who Legal.

“The skills in this area of the law that Edward and Andrew bring to our firm establish our New York office as a new cornerstone of our arbitration practice to which clients can turn with extreme confidence for resolving disputes favorably in key markets around the world,” said Baker Botts Managing Partner Andrew Baker. “We are pleased that they chose to join us at this time and place in their careers and the life of our firm.”

Schorr has more than 25 years, and Behrman more than 15 years, of international litigation experience. Together, they have developed a destination practice as go-to international lawyers. As first chair lawyers, they handle claims before U.S. courts and foreign tribunals in many sectors, including especially the energy and technology sectors, two of the firm’s core strengths.

“Edward and Andrew’s international arbitration skills have been tested in some of the most complex matters around the world,” said Michael Goldberg, co-chair of Baker Botts’ International Arbitration practice. “Their addition to our global arbitration practice augments the high level of expertise that our clients expect of a law firm with our history and stature in the arbitration world.”
