Baker McKenzie has been recognized for its outstanding contribution to the legal profession in the Middle East, named "International Law Firm of the Year" at the Oath Middle East Legal Awards in Dubai on 22 November 2016.
Held at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the awards ceremony hosted by the Oath magazine honoured the exceptional accomplishments of the region’s legal profession, recognizing law firms, general counsel and in-house teams who are revolutionizing the region with their contribution. The winners were determined by an independent judging panel and an audit firm.
This is the fourth time in the last 12 months that Baker McKenzie has been recognized for its exceptional legal and advisory service in the Middle East. The firm was voted "Regulatory and Investigations Law Firm of the Year" at the Corporate Counsel Middle East Awards 2016, "Middle East Consumer M&A Legal Advisor of the Year" at the inaugural Mergermarket M&A Awards 2016, and "Corporate Law Firm of the Year" at the inaugural CFO Middle East Awards in November 2015.
“We are extremely proud to have been recognized as the "International Law Firm of the Year" in the Middle East region by the Oath,” said Dr. Habib Al Mulla, Chairman of Baker McKenzie Habib Al Mulla. “Coming off the back of the other accolades that Baker McKenzie's Middle East team has received over the past 12 months, this award is a testament to our firm’s 30-year track record in the region and our continued commitment to our clients.”
