Why join?

This service provides law firms, in-house legal teams and legal practitioners with the contacts, tools and information they need to do business internationally. Globalisation has generated many exciting opportunities for legal professionals, but building relationships, sharing best practice, obtaining market intelligence and developing the ability to promote yourself abroad are necessary to convert this potential into success.

This is where the International Division can help - it is designed to compliment your international strategy and provides practical help and assistance to progress the development of your business in the international marketplace.
