Trial lawyer Kristin Cope is joining O’Melveny as a partner in the firm’s new Dallas office.

Cope, previously a partner at Baker Botts, has handled a wide range of complex commercial litigation, according to a Tuesday announcement from O’Melveny. She has represented Samsung Electronics, Pepsico, and pharmaceutical company HSM Holdings, among other clients, according to a review of federal court dockets.

O’Melveny launched offices in Dallas and Austin earlier this year, picking up lawyers from Norton Rose, Thompson & Knight, and other firms.

“As we continue to strengthen our Texas team, we are delighted to welcome Kristin to our Dallas office,” said O’Melveny Chair Bradley J. Butwin. “She is an acclaimed, talented litigator whose trial experience will be an immediate asset to our clients in Texas and beyond.”
