Law firm associations compared to sprawling, international firms

Law departments can hire local firms in different countries, they can hire a large firm with foreign offices, or they can turn to a law firm that belongs to an association that has international members. A report three years ago by one of the largest of such associations, Lex Mundi, listed eleven other groups – not surprisingly, all of whom lagged Lex Mundi among a group of international law departments in name recognition.

The eleven, in descending order of recognition levels, were AM LF Association, Interlaw, Interlex, Meritas, Pacific Rim Advisory, State Capital, Multilaw, TAGLaw, US LF Group, Terralex, and World Law Group.
