Multinationals and financial institutions face a complex journey from shaping a deal to closing it, to managing post-transaction integration.

Transactions can have a strategically transformative impact, but they can be high-risk – as well as high-reward. More than 70% of transactions fail to deliver the value envisaged. Experience and efficiency are essential in coming out on top, as is picking the right partner.

Baker McKenzie can guide you through every step of the transaction process, from strategy, due diligence deal structuring and financing, to weighing tax, competition, employment and regulatory considerations, to all aspects of post-acquisition integration.

We combine global market knowledge with local cultural nuance and industry specialism. We utilize innovative technologies, underpinned by sound judgment and years of experience, to lead our clients through complex, multinational deals, every day. We are a transactional powerhouse.

What do others say about us?

"Baker McKenzie has been very good at handling international transactions. This has played an important role in our acquisitions in relation to various jurisdictions, which could not have taken place without the excellent co-operation of the [Firm's] offices. I perceive Baker McKenzie as a leading law firm in the field of cross-border M&A."  
Corporate Client, Chambers 2020
"They were the only external firm we used, though the deal had a multi-country scope... They were very professional, experienced, well-staffed, with support immediately available."
Corporate Client, Chambers 2021
"It’s a one-stop shop for legal matters. They’re very thorough in whatever they do, and at the same time are very commercial." 
Private Equity Client, Chambers 2022
"The Firm has exceeded our expectations, especially on complex issues."
