History of LAWorld

LAWorld was established in 1997 when several prominent European lawyers, all members of the International Bar Association, met in London at the invitation of an English law firm, Kenneth Elliott & Rowe. These firms formed LAWorld, a legal network of mid sized European law firms who were able to communicate quickly and effectively using the latest internet technology. Email was a critical route to connect these lawyers to quality cost efficient legal advice for their international clients throughout Europe.

LAWorld Ltd is a company registered in the UK.

In 1999 the network was expanded to welcome member firms from The Americas and Asia/Pacific regions and has continued to grow every year since.

To facilitate overall administration and to develop marketing initiatives for the network, the network has an Executive Office based in Europe.

Members meet in person at least once a year at the annual conference and AGM and also at Regional meetings and through the International Bar Association Conferences.

The future

The principal aim for LAWorld is to focus on strategic member expansion in new jurisdictions, develop effective marketing programmes for its members and continue its commitment to delivering quality legal services anywhere in the world.

Two experienced property subrogation lawyers have joined Nexsen Pruet, LAWorld’s member firm in Charlotte, South Carolina, USA, which expands the scope of business litigation services provided to clients.
