Amy Pharr HefleyBaker Botts L.L.P.

Baker Botts L.L.P. has ‘team of highly motivated and intelligent lawyers who epitomize effective advocacy‘. The firm’s roots are in energy and technology, in which its sector-specific knowledge is highly regarded, though it also handles deal-related litigation in the financial services, healthcare and consumer products industries. Global co-chairs of litigation Danny David in Houston and Bridget Moore in Washington DC, along with co-chairs of securities litigation Jessica Pulliam in Dallas and Amy Pharr Hefley in Houston are the standout practitioners. David, who ‘has the unique ability to communicate the issues in a practical, not overly technical legal way‘, acted for Naphtha Israel Petroleum Corporation Ltd. in a class action arising from its acquisition of Isramco, Inc., a going-private transaction that closed in November 2019.
