Almost two years ago, a metapost pulled together what I had written on these pages about networks of law firms (See my post of Feb. 21, 2008 #2: law firm networks with 7 references.).
Those posts included 18 networks (aka associations): AM LF Association, ASLA: The Association of Great Law Firms in Italy, Consulegis, Interlaw, Interlex Group, International Network of Boutique Law Firms, Lex Africa, Lex Mundi, Markson MacDonald – The Barristers Group, Meritas, Multilaw, Pacific Rim Advisory Council, SEELegal, State Capital, TAGLaw, Terralex, US LF Group, and World Law Group.
But the groups of firms keep sprouting up or at least coming to this blog’s attention. I tracked down eight more (See my post of Feb. 7, 2006 #3: CMS; April 10, 2006 #4: Association of Patent Law Firms; March 23, 2008: ALFA International; Sept. 21, 2008: Bomchil Group and Worklaw Network; July 4, 2009: MSI Global Alliance; Jan. 29, 2010: CIUS Leading Counsel Network; and March 11, 2010: Law Europe EEIG and Ius Laboris.).
Of late, the ACC Docket, March 2010 at 92, listed 20 law firm networks. Here are the dozen on that list not mentioned above: The Advocacy Group, Counsel-Alliance, Eagle International Associates, Globalaw, International Lawyers Network, INTERLAW, The International Society of Primerus Law Firms, Legal Counsel International, Legal Netlink Alliance, Lexwork Alliance, National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms, and the Network of Leading Law Firms.
Any more want to come forward for recognition?
