Why join International Jurists?
We are committed to delivering high quality legal assistance.
Member firms of our network are committed to delivering high quality legal assistance and excellent client services. Each member has a deep knowledge of local legislation, judicial system, business and politics but also has an international view on other legal jurisdictions.
ij INTERNATIONAL JURISTS members are experienced in nearly all manner of cross-border business transactions and enterprise management. They are "born globals", used to working internationally and able to assist and deal with complex multi-jurisdictional issues. All members serve their international clients not only in their native languages, but also in English and often in a second foreign language.
We strive to go beyond the “network mentality”.
Our members are connected, personally. Through our system of monthly Management Committee teleconferences and our annual Management Committee Meeting, we share, discuss and exchange ideas. These meetings enable us to continually review quality standards, set service levels, update recent legal developments in our respective countries, keep in touch with our personal and professional developments; in short, they help us stay involved with each other. We strive to go beyond the “network mentality” by keeping our relationships active and healthy. This interaction culminates in our Annual General Meeting, a 3 day event, hosted by one of our member firms in their home country. These events are invaluable, as they offer us the chance to recap the year behind us and to plan the year ahead, together. Click here to see the activity of the network.
Membership in ij INTERNATIONAL JURISTS is open to law firms with a reputation for excellence in their local jurisdiction and which do not belong to a competing association or organization.
Prospective members are asked to complete a detailed questionnaire which is considered by the Management Committee (MC). Following a satisfactory review of the candidate's completed questionnaire, a representative of a Member firm makes a personal due diligence visit to the candidate's office to meet with partners of the firm.
Members pay an annual subscription for each year which they are members of the association. Sometimes, promotional offers are made for areas where the network is not represented.
