Baker & McKenzie is an international law firm, founded in Chicago in 1949 by Russell Baker and John McKenzie. It is home to more than 3,800 lawyers spread over 69 offices in 41 different countries.

As a transnational operation, no single nationality dominates the firm, and more than 80 percent of its lawyers practice outside the United States. The lawyers come from 60 countries and speak more than 75 languages, with English in common.

The firm saw US$2.27 billion in revenue in fiscal year 2011.Law]. Russell Baker, though born in Wisconsin, was raised in New Mexico. From an early age he was exposed to the Spanish language and other cultures. The early firm, Baker & Simpson provided legal services to Chicago's growing Mexican American community. The firm soon positioned itself to advise US companies investing in Latin America. Abbott Laboratories became a chief client in 1934 as it expanded overseas. In 1949, the firm relaunched with John McKenzie, an experienced litigator who had graduated from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. McKenzie took charge of the flourishing litigation practice, and Baker was able to devote his energies to building an international practice. Through the 1950s, the firm's client roster expanded to include Eli Lilly and Company (still a valued client today), G. D. Searle & Company, Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company and Honeywell.
