Everything we do at WLA is designed to give our member firms the resources, opportunities and culture of friendship they need to connect, engage, grow, and extend their legal and advisory reach to clients everywhere in the world.

 

A Strategic Global Network

 

WLA is not just a legal network, it is a highly-effective solution to doing business across borders. It combines friendship and mutual trust with a collective knowledge of legal systems, trading practices, licensing protocols, tax structures and other business complexities.

 

WLA firms thrive because they are able to:

 

Achieve faster growth and greater profitability
Retain and attract the brightest legal talent
Be more visible to and bring in ideal clients
Retain profitable clients who have sophisticated cross-border needs
Keep up with the latest legal and technological developments worldwide

Membership Criteria

 

Our success comes from bringing together ‘like-minded’ individuals and firms who share the WLA vision and value honesty, integrity, innovation and mutual trust. The following elements are fundamental to all WLA members:

Local and Global Expertise. Members are generally well-established medium-sized firms in their jurisdictions, with substantial partner involvement and both local and international expertise. Firms are responsible for their own staff and work projects. We also admit sole practitioners, boutiques and large practices. English fluency is essential.

Active and Engaged. Membership to WLA is non-exclusive, but participation in regional and practice-specific networks is encouraged. Firms share an ongoing commitment to the operation and development of WLA, such as participation in conferences and events and prompt response to WLA requests and referrals from other firms.

Shared Values of Honesty, Trust, and Innovation. Mutual trust and friendship are among the fundamental attributes of WLA membership. Members must adhere to principles of honesty and integrity in all professional dealings, and should observe modern business practices and the ability to communicate efficiently through modern communication channels.

Application for membership/acceptance procedure

 

Application for membership is made by completing an application form. There is no cost to make an application. This form asks for general details about your firm; experience of providing international legal services, details of your skills/experience etc. Once completed, this is circulated to our Board of Directors for acceptance (or to ask further questions).

Membership starts after payment of the very nominal annual membership fee which is based on the number of partners in your firm. New members are also obliged to sign the WLA’s Quality Code (to identify their compliance with it) and to acknowledge the Rules and Regulations of the Association.

 

What we look for in a member

 

  • Firms that provide highly specialized and focused practice related to a jurisdiction, industry or practice area. Or firms with resource capacity.
  • English-speaking capabilities at the partner level
  • Willingness to share knowledge and participate in WLA activities
  • Size is not critical, but a minimum of two partners suggests that a firm has the resources and capabilities we look for.
