About Us

Lexwork International is an association of high quality mid-sized independent law firms with offices in major cities located across Americas, Europe and Asia.

Lexwork International is not an ordinary law firm association. Dedicated individuals from all law firms are actively involved with Lexwork International and have driven its growth into new cities every year. When an email is sent out seeking a referral to a law firm in a different jurisdiction, there is always a quick response.

Members of Lexwork International know each other well as a result of high attendance at our annual in-person meetings and participation in regular conference calls. Everyone is extremely helpful often reaching out beyond the network to ensure member firms can be responsive to their clients and find a referral to an appropriate law firm in places where we currently do not have a Lexwork member.

The network is also an association of like-minded firms, with the desire to provide clients with high quality, cost-effective advice and legal representation. Clients with legal needs in foreign countries can be referred to firms that are knowledgeable about local laws, regulations, and local customs. Because the lawyers make the initial contacts with network members on behalf of our clients, the transition to a law firm in a new jurisdiction is greatly simplified.

Lexwork International has proved to be a cost-effective and efficient solution for meeting the international needs of clients. As more of clients expand their businesses regionally, nationally, and internationally, our members can call upon legal professionals they know and trust to deliver high quality legal services.

The central administration of Lexwork International is undertaken by a coordinating committee composed of four lawyers from Lexwork Europe & Asia and four lawyers from Lexwork Americas which meet in person twice a year in addition to quarterly conference calls. Key contacts are Derek McCulloch, Gillespie Macandrew for Europe and Asia and Andres Chirgwin, Chirgwin for the Americas.
