Group Profile:

The Consulegis Network - Consulegis is an international association of carefully selected independent law firms and related professional advisers. Originally founded in Germany, Consulegis has now expanded into the rest of Europe and beyond including the Americas, Asia Pacific, Africa, Russia and Eastern Europe. Consulegis is represented in over 40 countries.

Prime Aim of Consulegis - Designed as an integrated network, the association offers a dedicated and accessible service to businesses and individuals seeking opportunities and protection across national, regional, professional and cultural boundaries.

International Resource - The Consulegis network provides an extensive national and international resource of professional knowledge and expertise without the disadvantage that can sometimes be created by a more monolithic form of organisation. Based on a closely-knit association of respected local firms, the service available through Consulegis is independent, flexible, cost-effective - and most important, personal.

International Gateways - While Consulegis member firms are actively involved with their own local legal and commercial cultures, they also have immediate access to the resources of the international Consulegis network as a whole. A Consulegis member firm can therefore act as a gateway both for those from abroad seeking local opportunities; and, equally, for local businesses and individuals seeking advantage in the wider world.

Person-to-Person Network - Service from a Consulegis member carries with it entry to an extensive network of firms and individuals who are experts in their respective fields. Clients not only gain access to fellow Consulegis members internationally, but to all the specialists, consultants and business contacts of Consulegis as a whole. This person-to-person network opens up a wealth of professional knowledge and expertise.

Setting Standards of Excellence - Quality is built into the Consulegis network, from its rules of membership to the management of its affairs. All members are expected to maintain the highest standards of professionalism, intellectual creativity and ethics. Most importantly, all members share a commitment to putting clients first.

Every care is taken to admit as members only firms with a proven reputation and a commitment to Consulegis objectives. To ensure the maintenance of personal service, firms are generally no larger than is required to meet local needs. A key condition of membership is the complete independence of each member firm. This means that the adviser always remains accountable to the client. By keeping in close personal touch and by strengthening contacts through the central secretariat, regular bi-annual international gatherings, seminars, newsletters and electronic mail, Consulegis members are continually enhancing their mutual skills for the client's benefit.

We have identified specific areas of professional interest within the association and have formed specialist committees whereby current thinking and knowledge is discussed and exchanged. These groups usually meet twice a year and involve:

Aerospace
Business Generation (Marketing)
Intellectual Property, Entertainment and Information Technology
International Litigation and Arbitration
Corporate Law and Tax
International Insurance
International Asset Retrieval (Consulegis Collect)

Benefits - By dealing with a Consulegis member, clients are therefore able to obtain the following benefits:

  • Access to an internationally consistent range of professional services.
  • Extension of business contacts.
  • A way through local bureaucratic, linguistic and cultural barriers.
  • New and imaginative ways of approaching problems.
  • A reduction in the time spent briefing professional advisers.

These benefits ensure the delivery of value-added service at all times.

Making Contact - Selecting a Consulegis adviser is straightforward: the simplest method for the client is to contact the nearest member firm. After a preliminary discussion of the case the client will have the choice of staying with the original adviser or of being placed in touch with a different Consulegis member (in the country associated with the issues concerned). Depending on the choice, the original adviser will consult with and brief Consulegis colleagues on the client's behalf, making sure that all the client's needs are understood. On the other hand, the client's own adviser can remain responsible for the strategic aspects of the case while the member firm in the target country deals with the tactical and technical issues.

Further details of Consulegis's members and services will be gladly provided by the Secretariat in Zurich, Switzerland. (See Introduction/Offices)
