Baker McKenzie has promoted Robert Albaral to become the managing partner of its Dallas office.

Albaral succeeds Michael Santa Maria, who was recently appointed as chair of the firm’s North America international commercial practice group.

In his new role, Albaral will take charge of the Dallas office, which first opened in 1986, and manage the approximately 65 lawyers with practices in tax, intellectual property, M&A, dispute resolution, international commercial and franchising.

During his 30-year career at Baker McKenzie, Albaral has held a number of positions. He joined as an associate in 1987 and was appointed to partner in 1992. He has also served as managing partner of the Dallas and Houston offices and currently chairs the North America tax controversy sub-practice group and serves on the firm’s global tax disputes resolution steering committee and diversity and inclusion committee.
