Baker & McKenzie CIS
Baker & McKenzie's first German office was founded in Frankfurt/Main in 1962. Baker & McKenzie was one of the first legal firms to have a presence in Germany. Subsequently, during the nineties, the firm established further offices in Germany: Berlin (1990), Munich (1997) and Duesseldorf (1999). As one of the leading firms in Germany, they advise domestic and international companies in all areas of private and public commercial law. Baker & McKenzie's German offices comprise more than 170 lawyers and tax counsellors, a considerable number of whom are also notaries, chartered accountants and specialised lawyers in the fields of tax, labour or administrative law. The majority of their German lawyers have studied and practised law in another jurisdiction. They place particular emphasis on giving practical and individual assistance to their clients, supported by the academic training, technical specialisation and international expertise of their lawyers. Baker & McKenzie offers clients advice which combines comprehensive expertise in both national and European law together with international experience. Should it be required by their clients, they can quickly and efficiently offer seamless solutions covering multiple jurisdictions through their world-wide organisation which consists of more than 69 locations in 38 countries.
