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 34 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.

Our lawyers from 11 countries in the region explain and analyze legal and legislative developments -- from case laws in France and Spain to recently implemented rules and law amendments such as the EU's sanctions against Russia and Belgium's adoption of the AIFMD.
Joint ventures between competitors may provide a basis for public bidding exclusion, as shown by two recent decisions of the Higher State Court of Dusseldorf. We provide an overview of the court’s rulings and outline the consequences companies face for forming bidding consortia with competitors.
The new edition of the book "Kommentar zum Investmentfondsgesetz" ("Commentary on the Law of Investment Funds" in English) was released on 17th of December 2013. Well-known authors from academia and fund industry as well as from the other financial market sector describe the new legislation.
