Welcome to Baker & McKenzie in Azerbaijan

Baker & McKenzie was the first international law firm to be established in Azerbaijan and is consistently named as one of the leading firms in the country — we are top-ranked by Chambers Global, Legal 500 and IFLR 1000 in 2009-2012 as a Tier 1 firm — for our work on some of the most significant transactions in the banking and finance, oil and gas, energy generation and distribution, telecommunication and infrastructure sectors. We also advise major Azerbaijani companies and inbound foreign investors on all aspects of their operations.

Staffed by local lawyers admitted in Azerbaijan (most of whom have also received an advanced law degree in the US or Europe), we also have access to the knowledge and experience of colleagues around the world, enabling us to respond quickly and confidently to even complex cross-jurisdictional issues. Few other law firms in Azerbaijan can offer the same kind or quality of assistance.
