The Legal 500, a leading law firm directory, has named Baker McKenzie a 2016 Client Champion for global energy. Baker McKenzie is one of only 22 firms globally to be recognized as a “top performing firm” for energy in Legal 500’s 2016 Client Intelligence Report.

More than 9,000 general counsel, in-house lawyers and buyers of legal services in 118 countries were interviewed by researchers for Legal 500's report, including nearly 500 executives in the energy sector. According to the survey, clients recommend firms based on their industry knowledge, understanding of the strategic needs of the company, resourcing, billing, diversity, project management and quality of team.

“We are delighted to be recognized by our clients for our industry knowledge and strategic advice. This recognition reflects the quality and breadth of our team, which strives to provide practical solutions to clients in a constantly changing industry,” said James P. O'Brien, chair of Baker McKenzie’s Global Energy, Mining & Infrastructure Practice Group.

For more the 65 years, Baker & McKenzie lawyers have been advising on international energy, mining and infrastructure projects worldwide. The legal team’s transactional capability is coupled with broad-ranging skills in finance, corporate, tax, and environmental and competition law.
