Baker McKenzie helps clients overcome the challenges of competing in the global economy. The firm solves complex legal problems across borders, practices and industries. Its unique culture means that its people work together as trusted colleagues and friends, are experts in local markets and customs, and possess the know-how to navigate multiple jurisdictions, instilling confidence in clients.
These are unsettling times for business. The complexities of globalisation, economic and political uncertainty, disruptive new business models, cyber insecurity and multiplying layers of regulation are all helping to create an environment of volatility and ambiguity. In this context, clients need a new breed of lawyer who not only has the technical legal skills to handle complex matters with dexterity, but also a deep understanding of their business and the foresight to anticipate what’s next from a regulatory or industry perspective, providing informed counsel to navigate the constantly changing and challenging world of today and tomorrow.
Baker McKenzie is more than up to the challenge. Its people share common values of integrity, personal responsibility and tenacity in an enthusiastic client service culture. Its team members are citizens of more than 70 countries and are admitted to practise in nearly 250 jurisdictions, speaking more than 80 languages, with English in common. It has offices in 78 locations worldwide, including in 36 of the world’s 40 largest economies.
With more than 520 people across its five offices in Mexico, Baker McKenzie is the go-to firm in the country for tax, corporate/M&A, and energy, mining and infrastructure matters. Baker McKenzie lawyers work on some of the most significant transactions in Mexico and Latin America, including: representing UK health and beauty group Alliance Boots in its US$650 million acquisition of pharmacy chain Farmacias Ahumada in Mexico and Chile; advising Banco Invex and the Mexican Export Credit Agency on project financing for the construction of a pedestrian bridge linking the Tijuana and San Diego international airports; representing Axtel and Alestra as part of the consortium which bid for the concession to operate the country’s Red Compartida, a 700MHz 4G wholesale network; advising Unilever on the sale of its AdeS-branded beverage business in Latin America.
The quality of Baker McKenzie’s work is also reflected in the number of leading Mexican businesses, multinational companies and financial institutions that seek the advice of the firm’s lawyers on major projects, including Canadian power company ATCO, which relied on Baker McKenzie to help facilitate its entrance into the Mexican market following the country’s historic energy reform in 2013.
The firm is still guided by the entrepreneurial spirit and demanding standards of its founders, working to forge close personal relationships among its professionals to foster the responsiveness and accountability clients rightfully expect. Combining local insight with a regional perspective and international experience, Baker McKenzie is committed to helping clients achieve their business objectives and execute their global growth strategies.
