Governments worldwide are aggressively pursuing additional revenue, and crises-related restructurings pose new and difficult challenges for tax planning and dispute resolution. At Baker & McKenzie, we understand the business and legal intricacies of international taxation and have an unmatched ability to design, implement and defend international tax planning structures.

We are the most highly rated and recommended tax adviser among law firms, recognized worldwide as thought leaders in direct and indirect taxation, transfer pricing, and dispute resolution. Our more than 900 lawyers, economists and advisers in over 40 countries are in touch with changing tax laws, practices and dispute resolution techniques and can help design, implement, and defend tax strategies for international operations and transactions.

We have served as trusted tax counsel to many of the world’s largest public companies for more than five decades. Unlike accounting firms, we have experienced tax litigators who can represent clients in all phases of tax dispute resolution. We have handled large tax controversies at the audit, appeals and trial court levels in many countries and have successfully litigated some of the largest tax disputes on record.

Baker & McKenzie defined the global law firm in the 20th century, and we are redefining it to meet the challenges of the global economy in the 21st .

We bring to matters the instinctively global perspective and deep market knowledge and insights of more than 11,000 people in 77 offices worldwide. We have a distinctive global way of thinking, working and behaving – “fluency” – across borders, issues and practices.

We understand the challenges of the global economy because we have been at the forefront of its evolution. Since 1949, we have advised leading corporations on the issues of today’s integrated world market. We have cultivated the culture, commercial pragmatism and technical and interpersonal skills required to deliver world-class service tailored to the preferences of world-class clients worldwide.

Ours is a passionately collaborative community of 60 nationalities.

And our culture of friendship and broad scope of practice enable us to navigate complexity across issues, practices and borders with ease.
