Global Banking & Finance

Act with confidence


Unprecedented volatility in the global financial system is exposing market participants to extraordinary risk and uncertainty. The reassessment of risk by both lenders and borrowers has resulted in a less borrower-friendly environment and more restrictive terms in finance documents. Changes in the financial and regulatory landscape have altered the way business is conducted and are affecting legal arrangements. Keeping abreast of latest developments in practice across the globe and adapting to this new environment is key to achieving business objectives.

Baker & McKenzie has the experience and insight to help you navigate new complexities in today’s financial markets. We advise on all aspects of cross-border and domestic financing across a broad range of industries from IT to manufacturing and everything in between. Our team of more than 500 Banking & Finance lawyers is experienced in local and international banking and finance laws, regulations and customs. We collaborate seamlessly across 70 jurisdictions, sharing knowledge, ideas and best practices to efficiently address complex finance issues simultaneously and in multiple markets.
