Baker and Mackenzie
Baker McKenzie is best known as the ‘Global Law Firm of Choice for Africa’, advising many of the most dynamic and successful global business organisations through more than 4,000 locally qualified lawyers and 6,000 professional staff in 77 offices in 47 countries. The Firm is known for its global perspective, deep understanding of the local language and culture of business, uncompromising commitment to excellence, and world-class fluency in its client service. Baker McKenzie defined the global law firm and as our clients expand into new markets, we are there with them, sharing our unrivalled experience and helping them succeed in new regions. We call our global way of working, "fluency," because we partner with our clients seamlessly over time and across regions and business lines.
At Baker McKenzie, our track record in power projects — extensively advising on the development, operation, and financing of a range of projects — includes many "milestone projects" throughout the world. We act primarily for project developers, but also for lenders, governments, international agencies, contractors and operators. Being one of the largest international law firms, our clients will take advantage of our local market knowledge and relationships, first mover advantage for new opportunities and introductions to key local regulators and industry players. Our comprehensive industry knowledge, global reach and world-class abilities enable us to bring the right people, with the right skills, wherever you operate.
