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 USD 75,000 in 1949, to becoming one of the largest law firms by revenues, markets and headcount today, our commitment to excellence underpins our path to success.

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.
