SUCCESS STORY: BANKING ON FAST CONNECTION AND QUALITY ADVICE

Posted May 10, 2016

Allan Ritchie, Business Law Partner and Head of the Cross Border Practice at Loopstra Nixon, LEI’s member firm in Toronto, had a client, a top tier Canadian bank, requiring urgent legal advice in Karachi, Pakistan.

Allan emailed colleagues in LEI to ask if anyone could assist.

Fred Tannenbaum, a Managing Partner with Gould & Ratner, Chicago, among others, responded immediately, involving Atiq Anjarwalla of LEI member firm Anjarwalla Collins & Haldermota Legal Consultants of Dubai, as ACH are members of African Law Network, which has a member firm in Karachi, Haidermota & Co.

The Lawyers at Haidermota & Co. responded quickly and were able to arrange meetings in Karachi with the clients on very short notice. They delivered the required legal work product within 72 hours of engagement, at a price point which demonstrated a commitment to value consistent with LEI’s member firms.

Allan Ritchie writes “It’s a real testament to LEI that, within 60 minutes of my original email, I had a warm introduction to a firm in Karachi. Once again, LEI has demonstrated its worth in allowing our firm to protect and service a tier one client across the globe”.
