This year, Baker McKenzie celebrates the milestone of 60 years of activity in the Italian market.
The international law firm opened its first office in Milan, Italy in 1962, following the idea of its pioneers who were the first to recognize the importance of a network of highly interconnected law firms capable of offering their clients a global perspective. Baker McKenzie now has two offices in Italy — in Milan and Rome — with over 150 professionals and paralegals specialized by practice and industry, covering all areas of corporate law.
Throughout these 60 years of activity in the Italian legal market, the Firm has assisted large and medium-sized Italian and international companies in strategic and day-to-day operations, helping them to overcome daily challenges and navigate an increasingly competitive market.
Today, Baker McKenzie has over 6,000 professionals operating in 77 offices and 46 countries who are able to support every client decision on a domestic and international scale with their knowhow. Baker McKenzie assists its clients using a full-service approach that allows them to benefit from integrated teams belonging to different practice areas and different jurisdictions. This fluency in working across borders is reflected in Baker McKenzie being named the world's leading law firm brand for the 12th consecutive year in the latest Thomson Reuters Global Elite Law Firm Brand Index (formerly Acritas Global Elite Law Firm Brand Index).
Being part of Baker McKenzie means being part of a truly multicultural firm, where everybody can succeed, whatever their background and wherever they are.
Francesco Pisciotta, managing partner of Baker McKenzie Italy, comments: "We are happy and honored to celebrate this very important milestone. A special thank you goes to our team of professionals and collaborators who are the key to our success thanks to the commitment and passion they put into the service of our clients day after day. Professional activity has changed radically since 1962; what has remained unchanged is our ability to put clients first, listening to them and offering them excellent service to help them develop successful strategies and thrive in every context".
