More history. More opportunities.

Our roots can be traced back to a shared taxi ride home for two successful lawyers in 1948. In that cab, Russell Baker and John McKenzie discovered they had a shared vision – the desire to create a global law firm of talented, local lawyers.

Fast-forward 70 years and that firm now has offices in almost 80 worldwide locations. Our London office is the largest, with over 400 legal professionals serving our vast portfolio of clients, usually in collaboration with teams in our international offices. And it’s in London that your exciting career, in law, with Baker McKenzie could soon begin.
