The Alliance considers certain fundamentals critical to client service and member firm quality. Our members share these values and we carefully evaluate prospective firms to ensure they will uphold these qualities:
Responsiveness: When receiving a referral, a member firm will contact the receiving firm by e-mail or telephone within 24 hours.
Reputation: Our members abide by the ethical rules universally appropriate for lawyers and law firms, particularly the International Code of Ethics.
Quality: Each of our firms agrees to an annual vetting process to ensure the quality and professionalism of our group remain at the highest levels.
Commitment: Member firms approach the Alliance and each other with an investment mind-set. Building relationships is important, and Alliance firms agree to attend the Annual Meeting and a regional or interest group meeting each year.
Accessibility: Member firms agree to keep their profiles and contact information accurate and complete on our website and respond in a timely fashion to requests for updates to other firm information.
Visibility: Our members become more visible to clients and potential clients by authoring articles for our various publications, thereby increasing their presence within the Alliance and helping further the organization’s reputation.Member firms are also committed to communicating within their firm about the Alliance to ensure client requests are treated with urgency and all firm attorneys consider Alliance members when they need counsel in other jurisdictions.
