Baker, who says he joined Wick Phillips on Nov. 7, graduated magna cum laude from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University in May.
Baker, a native of Manchester, England, says he was about 9 years old when he moved with his family to the United States. Baker says he has lived in this country long enough to no longer have a British accent.
The law is Baker’s second career. He says he worked as a logistics services sales representative for C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc. from 2005-2007 and worked in construction materials sales at KT-PC of Arizona from 2007-2008.
Baker says that while in law school, he spent a year as a research fellow for the North American Center for Transborder Studies. He says he also was involved in an algae biofuels and carbon capture research project for Intel Corp.
