Baker McKenzie’s Antitrust & Competition practice has been ranked No. 3 in the world in Global Competition Review's 2021 Global Elite list of premier competition practices. The Firm has also been ranked No. 1 in the world in GCR's list of top Cartel practices, and No. 3 in the world in its Mergers rankings. GCR ranked Baker McKenzie as Elite, Highly Recommended or Recommended for competition law in 27 separate jurisdictions, more than any other law firm.
Based on comprehensive market research, the closely-watched GCR 100 review evaluates law firms based on client work, the global scale of the practice, the number of market-leading matters and the number of individually recognized practitioners. While Baker McKenzie has been named to the Global Elite list for six consecutive years, this is the first year it has been ranked as a Top 3 Global Elite practice.
According to GCR, “Baker McKenzie has jumped to third place in our Global Elite rankings based on the strength and breadth of the work done by its truly global competition practice,” noting that, “[t]he Firm had another big year in both cartel and merger control matters, making use of its far-flung network to act for clients all over the world.”
"We are honored to be named among the leading antitrust practices in the world," said Mark Hamer, Global Chair of Baker McKenzie's Antitrust & Competition practice. "The GCR Global Elite ranking is particularly meaningful to us because it is not based on any single practitioner, jurisdiction or matter — it results from the collective efforts of our hard-working competition teams for many different clients across multiple matters and geographies."Baker McKenzie's Antitrust & Competition practice is the largest in the world with more than 300 practitioners across 60 offices and 43 countries globally.
