Abstract:     
We track the rise of the cosmopolitan lawyer during the main period of globalization through the experience of an early partner in Baker & McKenzie, the world’s largest and most global law firm. The method is based on oral history. The paper considers two case studies in counseling and advising illustrating the role of the lawyer and clients in the construction of complex deals. In addition, we examine the role of education, career, and cosmopolitanism.

This is the final version of the paper.
