Clelands Lawyers Adelaide is a member of Lawyers Associated Worldwide (LAW), a global association of more than 100 independent law firms located in more than 50 countries. LAW member law firms are located in most major commercial centres around the world, and are organised into three regions, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe, Middle-East and Africa. Each member firm has local expertise and firsthand knowledge of the customs and practices in its own jurisdiction. All member firms adhere to a single standard of excellence. LAW affords national and global coverage to each member firm’s clients with responsive, accessible and accountable legal representation wherever it is required. LAW membership allows us to service the legal needs of clients that are expanding their operations and relationships into new domestic and foreign markets. Clelands Lawyers Adelaide joined LAW in 2005.
Membership to LAW is by invitation only, and candidates undergo a thorough screening process. Clelands Lawyers Adelaide is the only LAW member firm in Adelaide and one of only six firms from Australia.
In today’s globalised world, many clients have family, foreign property or business interests outside Australia, hence for Clelands Lawyers Adelaide clients, our LAW membership means we have direct access to a global resource of lawyers. These are trusted, pre-screened, professional colleagues located all over the world, and many we know personally through our participation in LAW meetings.
Clelands Lawyers Adelaide hosted the Annual Asia Pacific Regional Meeting of Lawyers Associated Worldwide in May 2017 and welcomed members from Perth, Darwin, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, USA, Philippines, New Zealand, Thailand to Adelaide.
