 In Uncategorized

Baker & McKenzie recently appointed a total of 35 new Partners in Asia Pacific. With the new appointments, Baker & McKenzie is the largest law firm by partner count in the region with 299 Partners, of which 147 are Principals.

“The recruitment and promotion of so much talent both reflects our needs to keep increasing our talent pool to help service an ever-increasing client base and confirms our commitment to client service,” said David Jacobs, Chairman of the Asia Pacific Region.

“We have the largest and deepest resources in the region to service clients,” continued Mr. Jacobs. “At a time when many international firms seem to be reducing their commitment to the Asia Pacific region, Baker & McKenzie is reversing the prevailing trend and growing. We are even better placed to take a lead role in providing legal services to international and local companies doing business in the most dynamic business region in the world. The future for our clients and our lawyers looks very exciting.”
