Baker & McKenzie is unique among law firms in our ability to deliver our global knowledge, experience and capabilities to our clients in the local market. Companies benchmark themselves against the best practice in their sectors, globally, not just domestically. We provide our clients with the innovative legal solutions they expect from the global top-tier law firm, together with commercial pragmatism and seasoned experience. Baker & McKenzie has been an integral part of the Australian legal landscape since 1964.
The results speak the global language of success.
Baker & McKenzie's Australian lawyers have advised on many of the headline Australian transactions of the last four decades – including the capital raising and listing for International Ferro Metals Limited, the first Australian company admitted to the FTSE 250; the A$4 billion KKR joint venture with the Seven Network; the groundbreaking A$1.85 billion Sims Group merger with the US company Metal Management Inc; and the A$1.2 billion acquisition of Schweppes Australia by Asahi Breweries.
We are the trusted advisors to leading Australian and multi-national corporations, State and Federal governments, Australian, international and multilateral institutions.
With offices in Melbourne and Sydney, we continue to bring the experience of our global classroom to our clients in Australia through every transaction and every piece of advice. We actively ensure that we have harnessed the best legal solution as tested through our global platform. Our ability to do this is underlined by our leadership in legal thinking – bringing our experience across legal and regulatory boundaries to clients in their home markets.
