Clarkslegal’s international alliance, TAGLaw®, was recently ranked by Chambers & Partners as an “Elite” legal alliance in the publication’s annual Global rankings guide. As an independent member of TAGLaw, Clarkslegal can provide its clients with access to high quality legal, accounting and financial representation around the world.
The Chambers & Partners’ rankings are based in part on the quality of TAGLaw’s independent law firm members and the service the firms provide to their clients. In addition to quality, Chambers & Partners considers the global reach of a legal alliance. TAGLaw’s international footprint encompasses 155 independent member firms that employ over 9,400 lawyers located in 328 offices throughout 87 countries. These metrics make TAGLaw one of the four largest law firm alliances in the world.
Chambers & Partners Guides have been ranking law firms and lawyers since 1990 and serve as an important resource for international in-house counsel. The guides now cover 185 jurisdictions throughout the world.
David Rintoul, Managing Partner of Clarkslegal explained how important this alliance is to Clarkslegal: “Our membership of the TAGLaw® alliance since its formation some 15 years ago has proved of great benefit to those of our clients with international operations. As our clients in increasing numbers seek to expand overseas, our ability to introduce to them professionals throughout the world, and who we personally know and trust in their ability to deliver services to the same exacting standards that we expect of ourselves, is a tremendous added value service that our clients greatly appreciate.”
“We are very pleased at the recognition by Chambers and Partners as one of the world’s few ‘Elite’ legal alliances,” said Robert Sattin, President of TAGLaw and the TAG Alliances. “It is a testament to the quality of our firms throughout the world. When you combine 155 law firm members in TAGLaw with the affiliation of top accounting firms and services providers in TIAG and TAG-SP, our multidisciplinary strength is unparalleled.”
