Baker McKenzie Reviews and Ratings |

Baker McKenzie

I have a great passion for Baker & McKenzie. and all that they stand for. Their attorneys are of the highest quality, the office atmosphere is wonderful, the leadership is exceptional, and the business runs efficiently. Don't think twice about selecting this firm for your legal requirements.
Our experience with Devin Carter was nothing but impressive - they were professional, responsive and made a great representative of their law firm.

BCG Attorney Search speaks with attorneys about law firms every day. Here is what attorneys are saying:

im outside the firm

Baker McKenzie is an international law firm with offices in over 77 countries. Many reviews of the firm report a positive work/life balance and a truly global feel. Employees report good company culture, generous salaries and benefits, and an overall good work environment with growth opportunities. Mentors are available to guide employees through their career development. The firm has significant resources available.

However, reviews also indicate that the firm has its shortcomings. Some employees have noted infighting between partners and staff, and ill-defined career paths for professional staff. It is also noted that the company has become increasingly disorganized, and employees feel run ragged due to penny-pinching. Additionally, the size of the firm makes it difficult to make decisions or have an impact. Lastly, the benefits package is reportedly not as good as other firms.

Overall, Baker McKenzie is a good place to work for those who enjoy a global atmosphere, good company culture, and the resources available to employees. However, it may not be the best fit for those who are looking for a more impactful role, or those who are looking for better benefits.
