This gives us access to more than 9,500 professionals in over 90 countries, to help provide our clients with legal support around the globe.
Many of the firm’s clients require international advice. We are founding members of TAGLaw, the legal arm of TAG Alliances, a professionally run multidisciplinary international alliance of independent professional services firms worldwide which provides us with a reliable source of overseas lawyers with whom we can work and to whom we can refer client matters if necessary.
TAGLaw was recently ranked by Chambers & Partners as an ‘Elite’ legal alliance – the highest ranking awarded to legal networks and alliances – in the publication’s annual Global rankings guide for the seventh time.
The Chambers & Partners’ rankings are based in part on the quality of TAG’s independent law firm members and the service the firms provide to their clients. In addition to quality, Chambers & Partners considers the global reach of a legal alliance. TAGLaw’s international footprint encompasses more than 160 independent member firms that employ over 10,000 lawyers and other professionals located in more than 90 countries. These metrics make TAGLaw one of the four largest law firm alliances in the world.
Furthermore, TAGLaw members are carefully selected for membership based on professional competence, commitment to client service, reputation within the legal community, and recommendations from existing members. TAGLaw members are highly respected, value-driven law firms with local market knowledge and expertise.
As regular attendees of the various conferences run by the TAGLaw alliance we have met many of the lawyers to whom we refer work face to face. Indeed we believe we know our fellow TAGLaw members better than lawyers in different jurisdictions operating out of a multiple office mega law firm. This allows us to identify the “best fit” lawyers for our clients in each jurisdiction and further ensure that all matters are dealt with in as efficient a manner as possible. We have the ability to organise a team of lawyers across jurisdictions at short notice and members of the alliance pride themselves on their commitment to providing the highest quality service to clients. We also regularly assist with the production of documents and testimony of witnesses for the purpose of foreign proceedings. For a representative example of our work please click here.
