Baker McKenzie is pleased to announce that Lexology has recognized partner Marcos Basso as the winner of the Client Choice Award for International Trade in Texas.

Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards recognize those partners around the world that “stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and quality of their service.” The criteria for the awards focus on the ability to “add real value to clients’ business above and beyond other players in the market.” Uniquely, these awards survey senior corporate counsel only, with this year’s winners chosen from a pool of more than 2,000 individual client assessments.

Corporate counsel who participated in the survey especially value Marcos for the following:

  • “The quality of Marcos Basso’s work is outstanding, he always takes a practical and business-orientated approach to issues.”
  • “Marcos really puts clients’ objectives at the forefront; he can negotiate under very tight timelines.”
  • “He is highly responsive and provides to-the-point advice; he has the knowledge and resources to serve clients’ global legal needs.”
  • “Marcos is the go-to person for all things relating to international trade; he does not waste time and is helpful beyond expectation.”


“We’re proud of Marcos for being recognized by our clients for his international work. These Client Choice awards are a reflection of the emphasis that we put on quality service to clients in Texas and across the globe,” Jonathan Newton, Managing Partner of Baker McKenzie’s Houston office said.

With more than 25 years of international business law experience, Marcos is a member of the Firm’s International Commercial Practice Group and routinely represents US and non-US companies on complex cross-border corporate and business transactions and investments in a range of industries around the world. Marcos provides companies with strategic advice on global expansion matters and helps them achieve their cross-border goals. 

Marcos is currently based in Houston and has previously worked in the Firm’s offices in Dallas, Caracas and Buenos Aires.

Commenting on the award Marcos said, “I’m very honored to be recognized by my clients and value the trust they put in me and Baker McKenzie to advise on their international businesses.”
