Today Chambers Global released their annual rankings for Global Law Firm Networks and for the fifth year in succession Multilaw has achieved ‘Elite’ status, one of only 9 networks in the world to be included. 

Adam Cooke, Executive Director commented

“this year saw the usual 10 in the Elite category whittled down to 9 and I predict this trend will continue with even fewer networks being included in this band in years to come as the competition at the top end becomes ever more fierce. A large amount of credit is also due to Multilaw member firms, 70% of whom have achieved a Chambers ranking in one or more practice areas across the range of Chambers guides this year.”

Chambers researchers looked for and found evidence of integration across the member firms and were impressed by the innovation and activity driven centrally by the Global Office. As with previous years the researchers interviewed a number of clients who work with Multilaw firms seeking their opinions on the network. Here is an excerpt of the review written by Chambers:

Multilaw comprises members across the globe which excel in a range of areas. The network makes use of the latest technology to assist with all aspects of collaborative cross-border practice and project management. Its members, being premier regional outfits, receive the benefits of a sophisticated and efficient platform to manage international business. It supports key clients through a management programme, and assists members with joint pitches. The group also maintains quality through continual appraisals.
