Networks + Affiliations

Alexander Holburn is a member of three affiliations which broaden our reach and bolster our expertise by giving us access to colleagues, knowledge and resources in various other jurisdictions which we utilize for our clients’ benefit.

Law Firm Alliance

We have been a proud member of the Law Firm Alliance (“LFA”) since 2005, a leading global network of full-service law firms. Established in 2000, the LFA’s goal is to provide clients of member firms with access to high quality, cost-effective legal services in jurisdictions worldwide. There is a judicious member selection policy in place and, since its establishment, membership has grown to 55 law firms with close to 3,000 lawyers practising throughout North America and in 9 countries internationally.

What Does This Mean For Our Clients?

Alexander Holburn’s LFA affiliation allows us to offer our clients an integrated global service, connecting them with the expertise of colleagues in full-service law firms throughout numerous jurisdictions. Our clients receive the responsiveness and efficiency important to them while allowing for meaningful personal relationships typically associated with smaller firms, supported by access to the combined knowledge and resources of a larger, multinational firm – without the associated fees.

Our Commitment To Quality

The Law Firm Alliance membership is highly selective and is offered on an invitation-only basis, promising that the calibre of firms selected is exceptionally high. Criteria include peer and client recommendations, service offerings, as well as ethical standards held within the firms. Prerequisites of membership include firms that offer full-service capabilities, the maintenance of substantial corporate and litigation practices, and an outward display of a commitment to client service. In this way, clients of member firms are assured that they have chosen a firm which is amongst the top rated in its geographical area and that they can expect this level of service in those jurisdictions where they may need to do business.
