New Interlaw Law Members Boost European and North American Expertise
Interlaw, the elite global legal practice, has expanded its global footprint with the addition of three new strategic partners from Europe and North America.
Bishop & McKenzie LLP (Alberta, Canada), Glinska & Mišković, (Zagreb, Croatia) and Shutts & Bowen LLP (Florida, USA) bring expertise across a full range of corporate legal disciplines in their jurisdictions including corporate, construction, financial services, taxation, trusts, estates, insolvency, litigation, administrative law and commercial real estate.
The new members add to the 11 firms that joined Interlaw in the last fiscal year, as the practice continues to successfully attract the most reputable independent law firms to serve clients across its global operations. Interlaw now has more than 7,000 lawyers in its network across more than 150 cities worldwide.
Glenn M. Cunningham, Chair of Interlaw, said: “The continued expansion of Interlaw with high quality legal expertise is vital to the success of the organization. As an elite global network, expanding the expertise available to our clients in more jurisdictions is key to providing local legal capability with the global reach that clients need. It will also provide our members and their clients with greater access to important jurisdictions when acting on cross-border matters of all kinds.”
