- Agenda 2021
Your organisation doesn’t have legal problems; it has commercial challenges and opportunities. So we don’t just deploy lawyers to address those issues; we deploy a wide range of professionals, technologies and systems to deliver success.
WLA’s governance bodies are the Global Council, the Global Board (including its Committees), and the Global Management Team supported by Practice Groups and Regional Groups.
The Board’s role is to ensure that WLA establishes and maintains the trust of its members, is prudent and ethical in its activities, and is accountable for its actions. The Board meetings focus on planning, policy-making, and assessing the progress of our mission.
WLA Industry Group is designed to anticipate and address business needs of clients operating in each specific industry sector.
Each WLA industry group draws upon experts from around the world to pool their industry expertise and develop perspectives, resources and capabilities to serve best solutions to clients. The industry and practice focused partners in each firm join the group.
WLA group leaders are responsible for profitability and utilization of these groups and are part of the Global Executive Board and may also be the equity holder in the WLA.
