Baker McKenzie (Chile)


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 77 locations worldwide, including in 36 of the world’s 40 largest economies.

Baker McKenzie Chile is among the largest and leading law firms in the country. We stand on more than 60 years of local experience and unrivalled global capabilities in advising on complex domestic and cross-border transactions. We are a key player in many pioneering deals and work with leading business associations to help shape legislation in Chile to become more flexible to investors and businesses.

Our locally trained, globally experienced lawyers are recognised for providing practical and innovative solutions. We consistently rank among Chile’s most respected law firms and are particularly well regarded for our tax, mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, mining, intellectual property, international trade, energy, dispute resolution and labour practices.
