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 mid-sized law firms. Established in 2000, the LFA’s goal is to provide legal clients with greater access to high quality and cost-effective legal services around the globe. Established in 2000, the strength of the Law Firm Alliance’s international network of member firms lies in the combined experience of more than 50 firms and 2,500 attorneys throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia, all with a deep commitment to client service. Through the Law Firm Alliance, member firms refer client matters to members in other locales with the knowledge that their client’s legal needs will be met with the highest level of quality and service.

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