Discover our success stories
Our English member (Gordon Dadds London (GD)) acting for Aspen Pharma (Aspen) was instructed by its GC to assist with preparation of a due diligence report covering 18 Globalaw European member firms during a 6 month due diligence exercise.
A client of our USA (Texas) member (Jackson Walker) was engaged in litigation in the US and needed to obtain documents and other information held by two Taiwan companies. Jackson Walker turned to Taiwan member (Shay & Partners) to assist in obtaining discovery against the Taiwanese companies by way of letters rogatory issued by the US court requesting international judicial assistance. With Shay & Partners' help, the letters rogatory were prepared and transmitted through the proper diplomatic channels to the Taiwanese district courts with jurisdiction over the target companies.
A large multi-national Japanese client of our Japanese member (Chuo Sogo Law Office), contacted it with a narrowly-defined question of employment/labour law affecting a proposed global re-organisation of its subsidiaries in the following 10 jurisdictions: USA (California, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Texas), France, Germany, Hong Kong, South Korea, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The firm sent a request to 10 Globalaw member firms in the respective jurisdictions on 29 January and collected all 10 responses by 1 February: three days later.
Globalaw firms are often called upon to assist with visa enquiries. As an example when a U.S. employee of a client of our USA member in Texas (Jackson Walker) was injured in Bosnia and transferred to Germany, our German member firm was immediately contacted for assistance and obtained the required visa.
