Legal Counsel International is an alliance of experienced lawyers helping clients transact business on five continents. We are not a huge law firm with hundreds of offices worldwide. We don't have to be. Rather, we are a worldwide network of independent attorneys with expertise in handling diverse and complex international commercial transactions, as well as routine matters. Our Mission is to facilitate international commerce in an interdependent world by providing targeted legal advice for cross-border transactions with a high level of personal service.
The LCI network offers clients unique advantages. As a group of independent legal specialists, we are not encumbered by a large and costly organization. We respond personally and directly to individual client needs, either by performing the work and addressing problems locally, or by forming the appropriate international working group through our network. Clients also benefit from our understanding of the PRACTICAL NEEDS of their business as they relate to foreign laws and regulations, red tape and cultural considerations.
How we work.
Typically, an LCI member lawyer acts as a principal legal advisor, maintaining direct client contact and accountability for specific client needs. The LCI attorney identifies the particular legal tasks and objectives and sees that all aspects of the work are completed in an effective and efficient manner. The principal attorney maintains this primary relationship, but may, with client approval, associate appropriate members of the network or other local counsel to provide additional services in specific areas or geographic locations.
We value every opportunity to work closely with clients to build successful businesses, structure new ventures, market and distribute products, steer a course of legal compliance, draft necessary agreements or dispatch a difficulty.
