Group Profile:

Globalaw is a worldwide network of 106 independent law firms with more than 4,500 lawyers in 160 cities. It provides the clients of its members with an international legal resource.

The network celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2009/10.

Globalaw has no referral fee arrangement between member firms. Fees are negotiated on an engagement basis.

Globalaw firms are independent. Most jurisdictions have one member firm although within the United States and similar jurisdictions a number of firms represent economically important areas. Globalaw firms are of medium size within their jurisdiction and have been between 8 and 500 lawyers. Membership fees are based on firm size. Member firms have full-service capability offering corporate, commercial, litigation and property/real estate, plus many additional areas of expertise.

A plenary member's meeting and three regional meetings take place annually.

An elected Board, Finance Committee, Membership and Nominating Committee and Business Development Committee ensure the network is structured and initiatives advance.

Globalaw is becoming recognised as a global legal solution provider and is working diligently to establish its niche in the global legal and business community. Firms interested in joining Globalaw may complete the online questionnaire, which will be considered by the Membership and Nominating Committee. The criteria for membership is rigid and potential firms can expect a visit from a Board member to discuss the needs of both the applicant firm and Globalaw. Applicants are invited and expected to attend the annual and one regional meeting throughout the year.

New member firms choose to join the Globalaw family, not a network of contact names and numbers. Fee earner exchanges and regional visits take place regularly and members are encouraged to report on these visits. Through detailed knowledge of member firm's expertise, referrals are made throughout the network with confidence.

There are several Globalaw Business Initiatives enabling members to service their clients worldwide in areas that have global dimensions. Initiatives include Banking, Cross Border Labour, Intellectual Property, Mining, Real Estate and Tax.

Globalaw welcomes enquiries from clients and firms. For more information, visit www.globalaw.net.
