The Global Chamber Dallas, an organization focused on cross-border trade and investment, named Dallas partner Kevin Maher Global Attorney of the Year, recognizing him as one of "the best global business leaders in the region."
“As soon as I learned about the work Kevin did, I knew it was important to recognize him. Kevin’s work of helping businesses expand into new international markets is the epitome of what we do at Global Chamber,” said Korina Smith, Executive Director of Global Chamber Dallas.
Mr. Maher, a partner in the International Commercial group, has a broad-based business-transactional practice focusing on complex cross-border corporate and commercial contract matters, with a strong emphasis on global brand expansion and international business growth. His experience extends to cross-border joint venture transactions, international franchising, licensing and distribution transactions, international mergers and acquisitions, international regulatory compliance, multi-jurisdictional corporate reorganizations, international corporate formation and maintenance and international real estate and finance.
"We are very proud of our good friend and partner, Kevin Maher. His skills as a cross-border lawyer are only outpaced by his caring and service to his colleagues and clients – he is a true asset to our firm and to our clients," said Michael Santa Maria, Managing Partner of Baker & McKenzie's Dallas office. "Clients look to our Firm for cutting-edge, strategic advice on cross-border deals and this recognition is a reflection of Kevin’s hard work and dedication combined with our global footprint, experience and capabilities. We are delighted to celebrate this honor alongside our office's 30th year in Dallas."
