Founded in 2000, the Employment Law Alliance (ELA) is the world’s largest network of management-side labour, employment and immigration attorneys. The organisation’s global member base includes 3000+ attorneys and more than 160 member firms. It spans six continents and includes more than 100 countries, all 50 US states and every Canadian province. The ELA prides itself on being a thought leader in the legal field, offering regional conferences, networking events, and monthly webinars for clients. The ELA website features a Global Employer Handbook, an online resource with practical, up-to-date information on the most pertinent labour and employment laws, more than 75 topics for each member jurisdiction.
The ELA provides multi-state and multi-national companies seamless, cost-effective legal services worldwide. Employers trust the quality of ELA’s representatives to handle cross-jurisdictional matters from San Francisco to Shanghai, Stockholm to Sydney, San José to Soweto. And, as a built-in, highly vetted and regularly monitored referral network, clients experience no deviation in service quality when working with ELA members in different jurisdictions on matters around the globe.
ELA membership is driven by quality – on both an individual and firm level. Firms are invited to become ELA members only after a rigorous due-diligence process, including consultation with experienced in-house counsel, judges, current members and industry leaders. The ELA’s leadership works hard to maintain a network of legal practitioners who are knowledgeable, thought leaders and genuinely dedicated to exceptional client service.
