Welcome to Baker & McKenzie in Europe, Middle East & Africa

We are committed to helping clients succeed in Europe and the rest of the world.

The depth of our legal knowledge and experience in Europe, the Middle East and Africa is unrivalled.

Lawyers in our 36 offices provide clients with comprehensive legal advice and the highest level of service across 26 jurisdictions in the region. Locally qualified and globally experienced, they are fluent in various practice areas and are recognized by clients and their peers as being at the very top of their profession.

Baker & McKenzie has been helping companies master challenges and opportunities in this dynamic region for almost 50 years. We understand how rapid economic and technological change is driving increasing focus on cost and new ways of working. Taking an industry sector approach, our multidisciplinary teams provide client-focused and pragmatic advice to ensure we help solve business as well as legal problems.

Working at Baker & McKenzie requires a global mindset and openness to frequent collaboration with both colleagues and clients. We follow defined criteria for hiring and offer a rich continuum of development and skill-building programs to our lawyers throughout their careers.
