Global Resources at Your Service

Global business, investments, transactions and disputes are increasingly significant and prevalent. Yet international legal advisory needs are always as unique as each individual client. For one company, the ability to access responsive, top-flight legal professionals on the ground in varied jurisdictions any day (and time zone) is essential. For another, occasional guidance and insight into the laws and regulations of a specific jurisdiction, or just confirming “how things are done” in a particular region, might be all that is required.

Maintaining the responsiveness, international reach, operational flexibility and cost-efficiency required to meet a range of clients’ needs for top-quality legal services all around the world has been the World Law Group’s central mission since its founding almost 30 years ago.

Each WLG member firm shares a commitment to delivering exceptional legal services and an enthusiasm for helping each other to continuously enhance the quality of those services for the benefit of all of the members’ clients, wherever they do business.

Why a Global Network?

  • Surveys of in-house counsel confirm
    • Their needs for legal services have globalized along with their companies’ businesses
    • Most do not believe a single “global” firm can fulfill legal needs
  • Clients want lawyers who know
    • Local law and regulation
    • Local leaders who shape the local landscape
  • No single “global” firm can be as knowledgeable about local law and business as the top local firms
  • No “global” firm can consistently provide high-quality service around the globe
  • Economics—no “global” firm can afford to build 50 equally robust, global offices
  • Talent—local market leaders consistently compete more effectively for exceptional local legal talent
