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 organisations.
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 2,500 times each year — or about nine 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.
