Baker & McKenzie

Baker & McKenzie was the first law firm to recognise the importance of global efforts to address climate change and the importance of such legal developments to our clients. Since 1997, our dedicated team of more than 60 lawyers have worked on numerous pioneering deals, the development of global climate law and policy and the formation of global carbon markets and efforts to address deforestation (REDD+). We are leading efforts increase the flow of climate finance and to implement the Paris Agreement and country based INDCs.

Our expertise is reflected by the quality of our clients and the quantity of our work-flow. We are the only firm repeatedly recognised by Environmental Finance's Market Survey as a legal leader in the carbon market and Chambers & Partners Legal Directory has ranked our practice as the top global climate practice for the last nine years. Our lawyers are involved in many other initiatives including the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), the Renewable Energy and International Law (REIL) Project and International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and Australia's Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) to name but a few.
