Get recognition as part of an integrated global brand trusted for its quality. Enhance your firm’s reputation for delivering the highest international standards of ethics, client service, and professionalism. Use the WLA brand in the following ways: ‘World Law Alliance’ or ‘WLA,’ ‘A WLA Firm,’ and ‘Member, World Law Alliance.’ The logo can be used at the bottom footer of your website and email signatures. The WLA logos will be shared with descriptions on how to use them in various settings, along with links to WLA assets for client knowledge.

Gain a global footprint and become more likely to receive referrals. Connect clients to the right talent to meet their specific needs in any required geography. Benefit from new client opportunities, increased opportunities through joint marketing initiatives, and access to top-quality training and know-how. This allows member firms, regardless of size or location, to be connected to client opportunities around the world and collaborate with other firms to find the right match with the right expertise in the right place for clients.

Collaboratively develop, own, and control specialized assets with a collective purpose in different practice and industry sectors. WLA membership allows progressive firms to remain independent, build a reputation, and pursue multi-market growth opportunities.

Our unified brand helps increase your visibility in the global marketplace. Members can leverage the “WONE GLOBAL” “WORLD LAW ALLIANCE”name alongside their own, allowing for dual recognition. For instance, if your firm is named “XYZ Associates,” you can brand yourself as “WONE GLOBAL-XYZ Associates” or simply use “WONE GLOBAL” OR “WORLD LAW ALLIANCE”for broader recognition. This co-branding strategy ensures that your local identity is preserved while benefiting from the global recognition of the “WONE GLOBAL” brand.
