Not unlike the riddle of the Sphinx, here is a riddle for you. When does something become bigger and smaller at the same time? Answer—LawExchange International’s continuing expansion, now adding two new members and an Observer firm, is actually making the world smaller for members!
We are delighted to welcome two new colleagues who were unanimously endorsed and approved at our recent meeting in Dublin. Our new colleagues from Barcelona are Net Cramen Abogados. Net Cramen is a middle size full service firm serving Spain. It also has an office in Hong Kong and Bogota. The Bogota office may become a member in Colombia. Our other new member is one of the oldest forms in India– Mulla & Mulla & Craigie Blunt & Caroe Partners, with offices in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore. This firm is also full service.
We also welcome an Observer firm, the Shanghai corporate department of the Global Law Organization, which also has offices in Beijing and Shenzhen.
LEI now enjoys a seamless web of 34 members (or soon to be members) in 31 countries comprising 70% of the world’s GDP! Together with our correspondents which fill in most of the rest of the countries of the world, with LEI you truly have the whole world in your hands.
Our expansion work is not done, however. We need your help! We are still looking for quality, mid-market, full service firms from: Turkey, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, The Philippines, Argentina, Miami, Houston/Dallas and Seattle and any other country whom our members advocate and which meet our fundamental principles for growth. Please keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities in these countries and let me know any questions or feel free to reach out to your contacts and inquire whether we can engage in a dialogue about possible membership.
Bigger is Smaller!
