Baker & McKenzie today announced the election of 63 new partners across the leading global law firm worldwide, bringing the total number of partners in the Firm to 1,400*. The promotions take effect 1 July 2012. 

The Firm also reported that it has added more than 50 lateral partners in key practice areas and jurisdictions over the past year. These partners support clients in corporate, M&A, compliance, securities and tax, among other practices. Growth also came from the opening of new offices in Johannesburg, South Africa; Istanbul, Turkey; and Doha, Qatar.

“We have responded with confidence to client demands for more senior and experienced counsel from their outside law firms,” said Eduardo Leite, Chairman of Baker & McKenzie’s Executive Committee. “The election of 63 partners reflects our continuing commitment to be a client-driven, performance-based firm. Clients want greater value, and with the growth of our partner ranks, we continue to be well-equipped to respond to that expectation.”
