Welcome to Baker & McKenzie in Canada


Baker & McKenzie opened its Toronto office in 1962, recognizing Canada's global economic importance. Today, Canada is one of the world's largest, diverse and developed economies, and our lawyers develop innovative and pragmatic business solutions for both domestic and foreign companies with business interests in Canada and around the world.

Having offices in 46 countries enables us to combine our in-depth local knowledge, with an unparalleled international perspective in delivering seamless cross-border advice and cost-effective service. We act for many of the world's and Canada's largest multinational business enterprises, domestic and privately held companies. In every transaction, we provide clients access to the right lawyers, with the right skills, positioned precisely in the right places to achieve results strategically wherever business is conducted.
