Firm Overview:


Founded in 1988, World Law Group® has consistently pursued its own unique growth strategy: to add a member firm in a new jurisdiction only when the needs of existing member firms and their clients demand, and only if a sufficiently high-quality firm can be identified. Overall, the list of World Law Group members below clearly demonstrates how successful this growth strategy has been. Undisputed national or regional leaders in their markets, all have a long and comprehensive presence in their jurisdictions and serve clients from multiple offices. So it is no surprise that clients of World Law Group member firms include many of the world’s largest multinational corporations as well as leading domestic companies, governments, and not-for-profit organizations.


Many members have been ranked top firms in their national markets by legal industry arbiters including Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500 and the International Financial Law Review.


As premier national firms, World Law Group members attract and retain the best local talent, including many lawyers who have gained international legal training and experience. They are intimately engaged in the business, legal and social environments in which they operate, and bring a deep and comprehensive understanding of the culture, customs and nuances of these environments that few foreign-based firms ever master. Through the World Law Group, each member firm can swiftly rally the broad legal experience, in-depth local knowledge and extensive resources of one or a dozen other members to work seamlessly for a client via a single phone call or email. World Law Group members worldwide do exactly that more than 2,800 times each year — or about 11 times each business day — with all member firms committed to responding within 24 hours. Clients of World Law Group members can rest assured, knowing they are being advised by some of the best legal professionals in every jurisdiction in which World Law Group has a presence, from more than 400 offices worldwide.


Main Areas of Practice:


World Law Group members are full-service business law firms and as such offer a comprehensive range of legal experience, services and resources required by today’s multinational businesses. Having worked together on so many cross-border transactions, disputes and other matters, they are accustomed to fielding multinational teams that regularly exceed client expectations for responsiveness, seamless service delivery and cost-effectiveness. Clients gain the ease and efficiency of working with a single firm, and the ability to access in-depth legal expertise, local knowledge and on-the-ground resources in as many business centers as needed, when needed. WLG member firms have already worked together on a broad range of legal challenges in every industry, including multinational mergers and acquisitions, multi-jurisdictional due diligence and merger filings, resolving complex international legal disputes, global anti-corruption compliance and training, data privacy/protection, employment and labor matters, intellectual property protection and IP asset management, among others.
