Baker McKenzie (Argentina)


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.

There is no doubt 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 coming 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.

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.

With more than 40 years of experience in Argentina, Baker McKenzie is the market leader in energy, mining and infrastructure, M&A, and labour and employment matters. The quality of the firm’s work is reflected in the recognition it receives within the legal community, with 18 of its attorneys being named among the best lawyers in Argentina by Chambers Latin America. Baker McKenzie Argentina’s lawyers work on some of the most complex matters in Latin America, including the firm’s advisory of Brazilian mining company Vale on the contractual and employment issues related to its suspension of Rio Colorado, a mining project in Argentina’s Mendoza province halted over economic and nationalisation concerns. The firm’s clients include leading Argentine and foreign multinationals and financial institutions in the mining, oil and gas, healthcare, automotive, consumer products, retail, international trade, financial services, and technology, media and telecommunications sectors. The firm’s strength is its ability to work across borders and practice areas to help clients overcome challenges and achieve their business objectives in Argentina and the rest of Latin America.
