Baker McKenzie has been ranked No. 4 in the world in Global Competition Review's 2024 Global Elite list, recognizing the world’s top law firms practicing antitrust law. Baker McKenzie's Antitrust & Competition team also retained its No. 1 Global Cartels practice ranking and was ranked No. 4 in the newly created Non-Cartel Defense category. The Firm's Merger practice has also received recognition as one of the top five globally. The Firm's A&C team also achieved 25 jurisdiction rankings, the most of any law firm.

Based on comprehensive market research, the closely watched GCR 100 evaluates law firms based on client work, the size and stability of the practice and individual recognitions of practitioners. Baker McKenzie has been named to the Global Elite list for nine consecutive years, and has been ranked as a Top 5 Global Elite practice for the last three years. 

"We are honored to again be named among the leading antitrust practices in the world," said Mark Hamer, Global Chair of Baker McKenzie's Antitrust & Competition practice. "This distinction is particularly meaningful to us because it is not based on any single practitioner, jurisdiction or matter — it recognizes aggregate achievements by our competition teams for many different clients across multiple matters and geographies. More and more, regulatory issues are creating headwinds for our clients, and they look to Baker McKenzie for business-focused legal advice that considers the global view while providing local perspective." 

Baker McKenzie's Antitrust & Competition practice is the largest in the world with more than 300 practitioners across 60 offices and 43 countries globally. The practice is consistently recognized as a global leader, helping companies navigate the merger control and assessment process, in addition to defending themselves in the face of antitrust infringement allegations. The Firm's A&C team also advises clients on remaining compliant with antitrust rules while maintaining a competitive edge, in addition to designing corporate compliance programs that work in every country where antitrust issues could arise. With deep bench strength not just in Europe and the US, but in Asia, Latin America and Africa, many of the team's practitioners are former antitrust enforcers and competition body members, providing informed insight on how to best interact with regulators to resolve cases quickly.
