Quality legal advice anywhere in the world

LAWorld is a non-exclusive international legal network of 50 independent mid sized law firms covering most of the major commercial centres around the world, with more than 1300 lawyers across 90 cities. Its central purpose is to provide the clients of its members with instant access to quality legal advice anywhere in the world.

Members share many characteristics. Most are medium sized within their jurisdiction, able to devote personal partner attention to their clients; valued for the breadth and depth of their legal expertise and the quality of client service and many are active in the International Bar Association.

All have broadly based commercial, corporate and business practices; strengths in litigation; international and domestic clients; English speaking lawyers and a commitment to the use of the latest technology to benefit clients.

Through membership of LAWorld, they can recommend foreign counsel most appropriate and qualified to meet the needs of every client and provide local expertise, lawyer exchanges, meeting facilities in most capital cities and global friendships.

Younger Lawyers Forum – A LAWorld Initiative

Brilliant young lawyers are the future of your law firm. Within LAWorld, there is a focus by our members on the value of international networking and the benefits of close co-operation with lawyers and friends from other jurisdictions and to bring junior lawyers into the LAWorld family.  

Two European member firms - Bader Gnehm & Partner (Switzerland) and AC Tischendorf (Germany) have devised the “LAWorld Next Generation – A forum for Younger Lawyers”.  Junior lawyers from every LAWorld member firm are invited to the launch meeting at ACT’s office in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on Saturday 2nd November 2013. These younger lawyers will devise their own agenda, meeting schedule and working platform and they will correspond regularly and meet annually.

The objectives are to increase the attractiveness of LAWorld members as future employees of the brightest and best young law recruits; enhance international legal understanding and experience; improve networking and presentational skills and create better awareness and understanding of the strengths and business opportunities that exist within LAWorld member firms.

Two young lawyers are co-ordinating LNG - Friederike Jawad (AC Tischendorf) and Stefan Kunz (Bader Gnehm).  For more information about this project, please email f.jawad@ac-tischendorf.com or kunz@bgpartner.ch
