Firm selected as Chicago representative in International Legal Network
Globalization means different things to different organizations. For middle market companies, it can mean more markets to sell to and more markets to source from. For big law firms, it can mean the expensive undertaking of opening offices in the different business hubs around the world where their multinational clients do business. For middle market companies entering new markets, the expense connected with using a single global law firm can be staggering.
With this in mind, Burke, Warren, MacKay & Serritella is very pleased to announce its selection as the Chicago member of Lawyers Associated Worldwide (LAW). LAW is a global association of nearly 100 top quality independent law firms located in more than 50 countries. With access to 4,000 lawyers worldwide, membership in LAW allows member firms to serve clients in new domestic and foreign markets. Additionally, Burke Warren is identified within LAW’s network of firms throughout the United States and the world as LAW’s only full-service “go-to” law firm in Chicago.
“The city of Chicago is a significant center for business, and the appointment of Burke, Warren to this particular jurisdiction not only adds strength to LAW’s presence in the United States of America, but provides the clients of its global membership with excellent legal representation for client transactions and advice in the Chicago jurisdiction,” says LAW Chairman Brian Everett from Auckland, New Zealand.
LAW was established in the 1980s and was subsequently incorporated in 2001 under the Swiss Civil Code. Membership in LAW is by invitation only and the Firm was one of several considered for the Chicago market. Member firms have substantial experience representing middle market companies and high net worth individuals with worldwide legal needs.
“Membership in LAW enables us to provide access to first-quality service to our clients on a global level,” says Jeff Warren. “The firm is honored to have been chosen to collaborate with LAW’s member firms to serve their clients’ needs as well as the needs of our clients.”
Jeff Warren and John Stephens represented the Firm at LAW’s annual meeting October 7-10 at the Langham Hotel in Shanghai, China. For more information about LAW, please contact Jeff Warren at 312/840-7020 or email@example.com or John Stephens at 312/840-7017 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
