Baker McKenzie is a truly global law firm. We have more offices in more locations than any other law firm and most of our work has an international dimension.
With more than 10,000 people in 46 countries, few other firms can claim to be so multi-national. We are the number one global brand and are seeing a dramatic rise in our brand strength in London (Acritas).
Yet big does not mean impersonal. One of the things you'll notice about Baker McKenzie is our culture. We call it Fluency, which describes how we work, think and behave when we are at our best. Every person in the firm is measured not just on the basis of how they perform but how they perform in this Fluent culture.
And, because we have no global head office, at the local level we can offer you the best of both worlds: the work, pride and experience of being part of one of the world's leading law firms but in a local office environment that is friendly and supportive. No matter what the role or level, our strategy is to encourage and support every Baker McKenzie person to be the best they can be.
In London you will be part of an 800 person office, which is also the firm's largest office globally. Originally opened in 1961 Baker McKenzie London is well established in the UK legal market and is regularly involved in some of the country's most high-profile legal matters. We are committed to serving our community and have an active CSR and pro bono programme.
The strength of our culture is evidenced by a number of recent awards. We are the only law firm to appear in both The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2013 and The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers 2013. We are one of only two law firms in the top 20 of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index 2014, reflecting our commitment to our progressive values and our collaborative, diverse and inclusive culture.
