BTI Consulting Group ranked Baker & McKenzie again as a Litigation Standout in the BTI Litigation Outlook 2017: Changes, Trends and Opportunities for Law Firms, the sixth annual report on the litigation market and leading law firms.
Based on extensive one on one interviews with more than 330 general counsel and legal decision makers at the world's largest companies who identify, unprompted and by name, their preferred law firms within several areas of litigation, BTI Litigation Outlook ranks firms that companies are "turning to for their most pressing litigation needs."
Clients recognized Baker & McKenzie as a Standout and listed the Firm on the Honor Roll of Most Feared Law Firms in Litigation.
"Baker & McKenzie’s strong showing in this year’s BTI Litigation Outlook is underscored by the firm’s Standout ranking by clients in Securities and Finance litigation, as well as in each of the other 7 areas of litigation in the report, including IP, Complex and Everyday Commercial Litigation, Complex and Everyday Employment Litigation, Class Actions, and Product Liability," said BTI president Michael B. Rynowecer.

The team has extensive industry expertise, particularly in the international trade, oil and gas, construction, mining, TMT, cybersecurity, consumer products and retail, pharmaceuticals and life sciences sectors.
"Companies trust Baker & McKenzie to handle complex, significant matters across multiple areas of litigation,” said Mark Taylor, Chair of the Firm's North American Litigation & Government Enforcement Practice. “We are honored that our team's abilities and proven track record are highly regarded by our clients.
The Firm's Litigation & Government Enforcement Practice continues to expand in North America and includes numerous practitioners with government experience who advise on a range of anti-corruption and FCPA matters and complex cross-border investigations.
