LAWorld Legal Network
We form relationships you can trust.
LAWorld is a non-exclusive international legal network of more than 50 independent law firms covering most of the major commercial centers around the world, with more than 1300 lawyers across 90 cities. Its central purpose is to provide the clients of its members with rapid and efficient access to quality legal advice anywhere in the world. Nexsen Pruet has been a LAWorld member since 2000, and is an active and regular participant in the network.
Law firms in the network share many characteristics. They are recognized leaders in their fields; devoted to providing personal partner-level attention to their clients; valued for the breadth and depth of their legal capacities and the quality of their client service. They believe in finding practical solutions to business problems. All have broadly based commercial, corporate, and business practices; strengths in litigation; international and domestic clients; English-speaking lawyers, and a commitment to the use of the latest technology to benefit clients.
LAWorld is affiliated with the Yangtzejiang Legal Network (YLN), which is one of the first and largest networks of Chinese lawyers, with representatives in all the major business and commercial centers in mainland China and Hong Kong. Through this network, LAWorld clients can access local legal assistance throughout China – which is critical when doing business in China. Nexsen Pruet has worked on many projects with YLN members.
In 2003, Nexsen Pruet hosted the annual LAWorld conference in Charleston and will be hosting it again in the spring of 2021. Nexsen Pruet Member Val H. Stieglitz has served two terms on the LAWorld Board of Directors and chairs a special joint LAWorld / YLN consultative committee. Nexsen Pruet has worked with LAWorld members on a wide range of litigation matters, supply agreements, tax issues, immigration, debt collection and intellectual property matters.
Through our membership in LAWorld, we can recommend counsel to assist you when you are doing business in foreign markets and with foreign entities, allowing you to access critical local expertise and make the most of local business opportunities.
