Network Overview:
Founded in 1991, Legalink is an international network of commercial law firms which provides top-quality multi-jurisdictional legal services through an exceptionally active international network. Legalink is an expanding network with over 65 members. They are typically mid-size independent law firms with an emphasis on commercial legal activity. Legalink is represented in all main commercial centres worldwide. Many of its members are leading or highly recommended law firms and lawyers as recognised international legal directories such as Chambers and Partners Global, Europe, USA and Asia editions, Legal 500 and IFLR, amongst others.

Legalink is currently represented in ten Latin American countries and is looking into expanding further in this vibrant and increasingly important region with the addition of further leading law firms throughout the region. The Legalink Latam member firms are permanently in contact through a number of dynamic Legalink Latam Group initiatives that aim at developing collaborative work opportunities and at the continuous promotion of the law firms and their capabilities both regionally and internationally.

Legalink’s members’ common aim is to guide clients through the challenges of global business by providing them with effective and efficient, personalised legal services. Historically, Legalink members have had notable success in facilitating the smooth completion and resolution of cross-border and international transactions and multi-jurisdictional disputes. Legalink itself does not perform or offer any legal work or services nor is it a partnership of law firms. Each member is independent and solely responsible for the quality of the legal services it renders to its clients.

Practice Groups:
All Legalink members are experienced in advising on the laws, regulations and procedures of their home jurisdictions. They provide a full-range of commercial legal services and are accustomed to working with both local and international clients. Their experience advising on multi-jurisdictional projects allows them to add value to clients’ transactions in a cost effective manner. Many of the lawyers in the Legalink network have trained and worked in countries other than their own and are capable of providing legal services in fluent English and other languages.
