Network Overview:
SCG Legal is one of the oldest and most highly respected law firm networks in the world. Founded in 1989 by the governors of 17 American states, it began with the premise that clients would be better served by lawyers who not only knew the law but were also familiar with how and by whom it is made –– a view that ultimately led them to locate in their respective state capitals and major commercial centers the law firms with which they later became associated. When they eventually expanded the network globally, they pursued a similar strategy. Instead of only one firm with many ‘branches’ to serve clients in countries outside the US, they recruited different independent firms renowned for their impressive legal talent and deep local ‘roots.’ Today, SCG Legal’s Chambers-ranked member firms and their attorneys around the world are among the best known and most highly regarded in their respective jurisdictions, including the following:

What SCG Legal’s firms offer is the opportunity to work closely with experienced lawyers who give their clients the kind of personal attention larger firms often promise but seldom deliver – and at generally far more reasonable billing rates.

SCG Legal didn’t get to be a leading law firm network on its own. Its firms made that happen. Discover what they can make happen for your business.
