Group Profile:

Interlaw Ltd., established in 1982, is an international association of independent, vetted law firms dedicated to providing clients with comprehensive legal services worldwide. With 70 member firms in 125 cities, Interlaw provides access to 5,000 lawyers globally. Interlaw is rated ‚??Band 1‚?Ě with Chambers & Partners, a leader in global legal networks.

Interlaw provides clients the ability to extend their global reach when initiating transactions or solving legal problems, providing "one stop shopping" with top quality member law firms for domestic and international matters. As leading law firms in their jurisdictions, these experienced, full-service commercial law firms provide clients with access not only to a wide range of practice areas and industry specializations, but also to the expertise needed to navigate through the legal, cultural and language issues which cross-border cases can involve.

For significant or complex international transactions, teams of experts from member firms work together to provide corporate clients with the depth of local and international legal knowledge and experience required to help clients achieve their business objectives.

Interlaw is a member-driven organization governed by a Board of Directors representing every region of the world.

Benefits of Interlaw
Interlaw offers clients:

  • Readily available, thoroughly vetted local specialists to provide comprehensive services and expert advice quickly, efficiently, and at a reasonable cost;
  • Confidence in obtaining the highest level of professional expertise and ethical practices from member firms;
  • More than 100 Interlawyers and firms are named "Best" in their jurisdictions every year;
  • A quality-monitored network of leading firms in their respective jurisdictions;
Interlaw provides the opportunity for member firms to:
  • Provide the highest caliber firms to assist their clients;
  • Remain independent, yet compete regionally and globally;
  • Share "Best Practices" with other member firms;
  • Gain access to professional development knowledge;
  • Provide top quality "one stop shopping" for their clients;

Much of Interlaw's success can be attributed to the solid personal and professional relationships that have developed among Interlaw members. These relationships are built and strengthened by the annual global meeting and three regional conferences. Members can communicate through listservs dedicated to specific geographical areas, practice groups, or industry interests.

To maintain consistent quality, Interlaw surveys and evaluates its members on an annual basis to ensure the highest standards of excellence. Interlaw also facilitates Special Business Teams (SBT's), which provide legal services to major national and international projects that require legal expertise from several jurisdictions.
