BAKER & MCKENZIE and Blake Dawson were both big winners in the PLC Which Lawyer? Law Firm Awards 2008.

Bakers was named International Law Firm of the Year jointly with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, while Blakes was named the Australia & Oceania Law Firm of the Year.

The awards were based on the votes of around 5,500 in-house counsels from around the world. Winners were selected for eleven different regional categories as well as an overall International Law Firm of the Year award. A number of firms were nominated for each category, based on their PLC Which Lawyer? ranking in December last year.

As well as being jointly-named the overall international law firm of the year, Bakers took out first prize in four of the regional categories — Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and for the fourth consecutive year, Asia.

Bakers and Freshfields were up against fellow legal giants Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, DLA Piper, Jones Day, Linklaters, Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom and White & Case for the International Law Firm of the Year award.

Meanwhile, Blakes narrowly beat out runner-up Minter Ellison, as well as all the usual suspects, Allens Arthur Robinson, Mallesons Stephen Jacques, Freehills, Clayton Utz and DLA Phillips Fox, to take out the Australia and Oceania award.
