The story of Baker & McKenzie is one of imagination, determination and hard work. For more than 60 years, our people have helped nurture our unique global organization.

From starting off with four lawyers, a secretary and fees totaling US$75,000 in 1949, to becoming one of the largest law firm by revenues, markets and headcount today, our commitment to excellence underpins our path to success. With 77 offices in 47 countries and 13,000 people, we are the world's premier global law firm.

Our growth has been organic, giving us a strong, common culture that runs through our firm. For six decades we have followed clients into new markets, each time establishing offices driven by local lawyers and talent.
