Our clients increasingly conduct their businesses on a global basis and expect us to be able to look after their interests wherever they may arise. We appreciate that understanding different cultures can be just as important as providing legal knowledge and expertise.
We have developed an extensive informal network of law firms we have worked with over many years in most foreign jurisdictions. In addition we are members of two international legal alliances which provides access to international law firms we know and are happy to recommend to our clients.
Legalink is an invitation-only network of top tier independent law firms which practice in the world’s finance and commercial centres. All member firms meet twice a year in order to create and reinforce strong relationships. This ensures that we are able to assist our clients in making an effective judgment about which firm will best meet their interests internationally.
Member firms are selected based upon an outstanding reputation, depth and breadth of commitment to international legal services and a proven ability to assist other law firms undertaking international legal work. We are one of only three UK member firms and the only firm with offices outside of London.
The International Association of Insurance Law/Association Internationale de Droit des Assurances (AIDA) was formed in 1960 for the purpose of promoting and developing, at an international level, collaboration between its members within the insurance industry to pursue harmonisation of insurance law or means for resolution of insurance disputes. We are members of BILA (the British Insurance Law Association) which is AIDA’s British Chapter. The membership of this international Association consists of lawyers, insurers, brokers and intermediaries who are involved in the insurance industry.
Participating firms within these associations can be found in over 60 countries. Individual members of the firm are also members of other international legal networks.
