Clelands Lawyers hosted the Annual Asia Pacific Regional Meeting of Lawyers Associated Worldwide from 4th to 6th May 2017 and welcomed members from Perth, Darwin, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, USA, Philippines, New Zealand, Thailand to Adelaide.
In 2005, Clelands Lawyers became a member of Lawyers Associated Worldwide (LAW), an association of more than 90 independent commerical law firms located in most major commercial centres around the world, 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.
Membership to LAW is by invitation only, and candidates undergo a thorough screening process. Clelands Lawyers 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 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.
