An effective platform to seamlessly address and meet global needs.
The global reach you need from the local firm you trust.
Created in 1994 and owned by its members, Globalaw is a non-profit organization focused on providing legal services around the globe. The network is made up of recognized medium-sized law firms that deliver a full-service offering. Many are leading firms in their jurisdiction or practice areas. All member firms are recommended and carefully vetted before joining Globalaw. Globalaw has grown steadily since its inception, with a continued focus on quality and commitment. Most countries other than the largest jurisdictions such as the USA, China and India have only one member firm, so membership is exclusive, sought after and valued.
Globalaw enjoys and leverages strong personal relationships. We work hard to make people feel welcome within our network and our members work hard to deliver quality service and to provide global solutions. Clients receive relationship lawyering, value-for-money service and practical solutions to their problems.
Our firms are integral to their business community. We are able therefore not just to resolve legal issues, but to introduce our clients to genuine business opportunities all around the world. We are able to coordinate large numbers of firms and lawyers, if necessary, to handle large and complex transactions. We have loyal and dedicated member firms in places where the large global firms do not have offices and have to outsource.
Board of Directors
Our member firms commit to the Globalaw Quality Commitment and, accordingly, clients can expect the highest levels of service and quality.

“Globalaw is an invaluable resource to its member firms. The Leadership Program introduced me to the Globalaw network, improved my business development skills, and allowed me to visit new places and bond with a distinguished group of lawyers. I strongly recommend the program to any young lawyer interested in expanding his or her practice into the global business environment.”
Oldham, Li & Nie, Hong Kong
“I am honoured to be part of a network of highly professional, enthusiastic and committed lawyers based all over the world and am grateful to have learned so much from their vast amounts of experience.”
Past President William (Bill) Taylor
Hanson Bridgett LLP
“I have never been more enthused about our network and our ability to serve member clients globally. I believe that our member firms share this enthusiasm. Under the direction of our dedicated Officers and Directors, Globalaw is committed to service excellence and sustainable growth.”
“Globalaw has allowed my firm to “go global”. Given that member firms are present in all major jurisdictions across the globe, I am able to canvas potential clients and offer them my connections, in turn accompanying them in their international expansion whilst remaining their local correspondent.”
“The Globalaw network allows our firm to advise clients about legal issues to consider when doing business in certain jurisdictions. As member firms are well established in their own market and well connected in their business communities, they can explain the socio-economic environment that the client is entering and subsequently better address their needs.”
