Introduction

This directory focuses on law firms with a significant international practice for trade and investment issues, although we may highlight other relevant specialties such as intellectual property, corporate structuring, and M&A or IPA work.   We specialize in personal, independent introductions to relevant professional service providers according to the project interests of the executives we serve. 

Please contact us directly for relevant introductions or any additional contacts, market knowledge, and research which we don't publish.

The presence or absence of any organization on these lists, or their position on the lists, does not imply any endorsement or opinion about their services, nor by them about our own.

The selections and brief comments are simply intended to be helpful to executives and their advisors who may be unaware of such companies, where they have offices, and how to reach suggested contacts or their websites quickly.

If you contact the professionals listed below, please let them know how you found them.

We also provide advertising opportunities, such as executive summary presentations about the capabilities which differentiate a firm, or contributed "thought leadership" articles on relevant topics.

Try our new Global Law Search tool at ShortListNews.com for quick research across many of the international law firm websites listed below.

Please let us know whether this directory and their capabilities were helpful to you.

Suggestions or corrections are welcome , as are relevant reciprocal links.
