The Alliott Global Alliance, (AGA) of which Sherrards being the UK law member located in London and the South East of England, has 210 member firms in 94 countries of which 84 are law firms.
The AGA has been ranked band one for law firm networks which is a powerful validation of the alliance.
Chambers rankings are the definitive mark of excellence across the legal industry and highlight those firms, networks and individuals that have stood out as the best in field in the most rigorous, independent, and in-depth research process of any legal directory on the market.
The criteria for getting ranked as a Leading Law Firm Network states that a network should exist without relying on a central law firm, must position itself as a cost-effective alternative to an international law firm with many international branches and, if effective, should help members generate cross-referral work and benefit clients when combining solutions when work crosses borders.
Head of international at Sherrards Solicitors, Paul Marmor commented:
“This is a real testament to the strength of the alliance and the powerful punch we can deliver for our clients, contacts and friends providing a global reach which is second to none. Whether it’s through the AGA alliance or through the International Bar Association as well as our regional desks in Europe, South East Asia or Eastern & Central Europe we can provide connectivity and support on a global scale.”
Giles Brake, Alliott Global Alliance CEO, commented:
“We are honoured to be recognised by Chambers in this elite category and to enter straight into Band 1 alongside a small number of prestigious law firm networks.
“AGA has law firm members that extend deep into Europe, Africa, the Middle East, North America, Latin America, and the Asia Pacific region, and our lawyers serve clients in 300+ locations around the world. We have worked diligently to build our alliance organically and to raise the standards required to become and remain a member firm. Furthermore, our Together as One service model ensures clients can count on a leading mid-size, independent law firm to represent them all over the world and ensure service is of a consistently high standard wherever it is needed. This is a wonderful seal of approval for the alliance, our member firms, and our London-based Executive Office team.”
