HowardKennedyFsi has considerable international capability so that we can resource client needs across multiple jurisdictions. With over 25% of our revenue coming from outside the UK, we have significant experience advising within the regions of the Middle East, Asian Sub Continent, Far East, Western Europe and the US.
We are supported in our international capabilities through our memberships of two global legal networks:
Our international capability is enhanced by our membership of the leading global network Lawyers Associated Worldwide (LAW) where independent firms work together on a non-exclusive basis. In addition we have close ties with specialist law firms working in all the leading jurisdictions with the ability to seek assistance from practitioners on a worldwide basis. Each of the firms we instruct is well known to us and we regularly monitor and appraise the performance and responsiveness of any overseas firm we use. Local knowledge, commercial awareness and continuity of service are integral to our advice and approach.
In 2000 the Firm became the chosen London representative of Meritas, a global alliance of business law firms delivering localised legal service of the highest quality on a fully coordinated basis. We became a member of Meritas in order to provide existing clients with support across jurisdictions and to further its reputation for advising international clients on their business interests in the UK.
