Goodness gracious -- read what's going on in Texas!
"'Thanks for the business; now here's a little "Rock Lobster.'"
"It's an adventurous dish for any big Texas firm to serve its clients to show its appreciation. But the Dallas office of Houston-based Baker Botts presented that and more at its annual client appreciation party Feb. 25.
"Lest anyone be confused, the above-mentioned crustacean is not a fancy seafood entree but rather an infectious dance tune sung by the legendary Athens, Ga.-based new wave band The B-52's. Baker Botts -- which traces its origins back to 1840 and counts former U.S. Secretary of State James A. Baker and former Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Tom Phillips as partners -- hired the band to play live at its Dallas client appreciation party. And the firm, which represents Dallas' Halliburton Co. and Houston's Reliant Energy, chose a most appropriate setting for its clients and lawyers to hear a band named after an old bomber: The Frontiers of Flight Museum at Love Field, which features genuine war planes hanging from the ceiling.
"Who says Baker Botts is stuffy?"
Well, I would, & have....who knew? BTW, BB says this about paralegals: "An integral part of any great law firm is a strong paralegal program." Got that right!
