Latest news:

We have established strong international links through our memberships of Multilaw and the European Law Group.

Multilaw is a network of independent law firms in 100 countries worldwide. The European Law Group, of which we are a founding member, has members in key European countries.

These connections ensure that we obtain the best advice for our clients when an international perspective is needed. They enable us to manage cross border transactions in diverse jurisdictions as effectively as possible by working with lawyers who are familiar with both the full legal implications and the relevant market conditions.

Member firms are carefully chosen. To be invited to join either organisation, legal practices must not only have the highest standards of ethics and quality, they must also be able to service the full needs of the typical international business client and have a good personality fit with the other member firms.


MultilawMultilaw is one of the world's leading associations of independent law firms and one of the few major networks to offer local know-how in the world's main financial centres. Membership comprises 90 firms in 100 countries with access to the expertise of 9,000 qualified lawyers.

The purpose of Multilaw is to assist and support its member firms, who share a common approach in terms of service delivery, in the development and improvement of their practices through a variety of resources and programmes so that they, in turn, can provide a better service for their clients.

In the latest edition of Chambers Global, Multilaw is included in the elite band of international legal networks, one of only 10 groups worldwide to have been awarded this ranking. The recognition reflects the quality of Multilaw’s membership as well as the ongoing growth and enhancement of the network.


European Law GroupThe European Law Group (ELG) was established in 1983, and now has 14 member firms in key territories across Europe. Its international connections ensure that if you are undertaking a cross-border transaction or need advice from a lawyer resident in a particular European country, the ELG can provide specialists able to advise and assist you.

As a non-exclusive association of law firms practising throughout Europe, the ELG is committed to providing clients with legal advisers who understand their needs and can deliver the appropriate advice within the relevant timescale and budget.

Members of the ELG meet regularly. They have established specialist sub-groups, including mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, agency and distribution, employment and taxation.
