Firm Overview:
The Employment Law Alliance (ELA) has unprecedented global reach. With experts in more than 100 countries, including every US state and Canadian province, the ELA’s law firm members work together to provide world-class labour, employment and immigration law services throughout North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.

Its high-quality global HR legal solutions and seamless cross-border coordination of employment law services have earned the ELA worldwide recognition as the go-to legal provider of employment law services.

Main Areas of Practice:
Member firms are selected after a rigorous due-diligence process, including consultation with experienced in-house counsel, judges, current members, and industry leaders. ELA member firms are highly regarded as the best labour and employment firms in their jurisdictions and are recognised leaders for their distinguished local legal talent. The ELA’s law firm members range from large regional full-service firms to labour-focused boutiques; the common denominator is that each and every firm is recognised as a leader in their respective market. Collectively, its members have established strong, personal relationships, which distinguish the ELA as a truly integrated provider of cross-border legal solutions. These relationships are built on trust and stem from a commitment members uphold to provide quality, responsive service and shared expertise. Year long participation in professional development initiatives, global conferences, and regional meetings, along with collaboration with shared clients facilitate and deepen those relationships.

Clients:
Member firms’ clients range from the largest, most sophisticated multinational corporations to world-class research universities, global non-profits, private equity firms, venture capitalists and leading startups.
