Baker McKenzie continues to maintain its position as the top law firm in Latin America with 95 ranked practice areas in the latest edition of legal directory Chambers & Partners -- more than any other law firm in the region and more than three times greater than the second highest ranked firm in Latin America. In addition, Baker McKenzie leads the region with 174 lawyer rankings.
Moreover, nearly half of Baker McKenzie's rankings in Latin America are in the Band 1 and Band 2 categories, recognizing the excellence in legal advice provided to clients in the region throughout multiple jurisdictions and sectors.
“We are honored to have once again been recognized by Chambers & Partners for our unwavering commitment to offering world-class legal advice, locally based expertise in the region, and deep knowledge of Latin American industries” said Jaime Trujillo, Chair of the Latin America Regional Council for Baker McKenzie. “Our lawyers are among our clients’ most trusted advisors because of our relentless pursuit of excellence, and unparalleled knowledge of local industries. Their prowess in key business sectors is what sets us apart, and we are pleased that this has been once again confirmed by independent research.”
Baker McKenzie has earned Band 1 rankings in Chambers & Partners every year since the recognition began in the following areas: Banking & Finance (Peru); Dispute Resolution (Venezuela); Dispute Resolution: Litigation (Peru); Energy & Natural Resources: Mining (Chile); Intellectual Property (Colombia); International Trade/WTO (Mexico); Projects (Peru); Public Law (Peru) and Tax (Venezuela). This year the Firm was also ranked in the newly created category of Compliance in Argentina.
Jaime added, “Our commitment to excellence and ability to combine our local know-how with a uniquely global perspective are the reasons why we have the most practices and lawyers listed in Chambers and other leading directories. Baker McKenzie looks forward to continuing to help our clients plan for the future and anticipate change with the same level of outstanding service and knowledge of Latin American sectors that we have provided since our pioneering expansion into Caracas in 1955.”
