Interlaw is a long-established elite global network of pre-eminent independent law firms comprising 7,000+ lawyers based in over 140 cities around the world. For many decades, Interlaw has collaborated with our strategic partners to offer businesses across the globe the highest quality cross-border legal advice via a single point of contact. Our lawyers work tirelessly to offer a seamless, efficient, cost effective level of service attune to local laws, rules, regulations and customs. Interlaw's extensive offering spans all key practice areas and markets around the world. Our experienced lawyers, many of whom are leaders in their home jurisdictions, have the capability and resources to quickly mobilize legal experts globally to support even the most complex client projects. What's more, our culture of collaboration, collectiveness and transparency has attracted praise from both members and clients alike.
Beyond the usual expectations of impeccable professional standards, Interlaw's representative firms share the same general core values and have committed to extend to one another’s clients the professional courtesy of “Best Client” status, assuring a continuous service, timely response, transparent and fair billing practices, as well as open, honest and direct communication with our clients and the referring lawyers.
Every prospective strategic partner is thoroughly vetted before being invited to join Interlaw and each law firm’s participation and performance is closely monitored to assure quality is maintained. To this end, all our representative firms are regularly peer-reviewed and each one also participates in routine audits as part of our ongoing quality assurance program.
Collaboration and communication across our network have been enhanced through the creation of integrated practice groups, including Special Business Teams, Project Teams and Affinity Groups. Our strategic partners regularly visit one another’s offices, to build relationships and to share knowhow and other legal resources. Additionally, members often host receptions, workshops and seminars for fellow member firms and their clients either independently or when lawyers from our network are in their city for other legal or corporate events.
