Baker & McKenzie Continues Expansion of New York Transactional Practice
Highly-regarded practitioners bring decades of experience in bankruptcies and restructurings.


As the leading cross-border firm in the United States, our more than 700 lawyers represent clients in some of the world's most significant legal matters. Our accomplishments include winning an unprecedented victory in US Tax Court for chipmaker Altera a 15-0 decision that not only struck down part of an IRS cost-sharing regulation and saved Altera millions in taxes, but set a new standard for IRS rulemaking.

We also advised Baxter on the international aspects of the spinoff of its biopharmaceutical division for US$6 billion and represented 44 Swiss banks negotiating with the US Department of Justice to avoid tax evasion charges — a project named one of the top "Global Disputes of the Year" by American Lawyer in 2015. The quality of our work is reflected in the number of domestic and multinational companies that seek our advice as they grow and manage their businesses, as well as the recognition we receive within the legal industry.

Recently named one of the region's "Top 10 Most Innovative Law Firms" by the Financial Times, our transactional, litigation, employment, intellectual property, tax, and international trade practices have been repeatedly cited among the best in North America. With more than 100 lawyers in each of the key US commercial centers of New York, Texas (Houston and Dallas), Chicago, the Bay Area and Washington, DC, we also advise clients on a range of US government enforcement and regulatory matters.

Our longstanding office in Miami serves as a gateway for many of our clients to Latin America, where Baker & McKenzie has a market-leading presence with 15 offices across seven countries and more than 750 attorneys.
