World Law Alliance

 

ONE WORLD. ONE FIRM.

Structured for innovation.
We are an Integrated international law practice.

The legal market has historically lacked transparency, making it difficult for clients to deviate from using incumbent, brand-name law firms.

Things are changing now. With the WLA business model, the GC’s can now be well informed and savvier about where to send different types of work and help serve their corporations better.

We are top regional firms structured as a single, fully integrated international team. Our clients can rely on clear, connected legal advice, anywhere any time.
