This is the ninth time TAGLaw has received the distinguished “Elite” designation since Chambers & Partners began ranking legal networks and alliances in 2013.
TAGLaw was also invited provide the introduction to this year’s rankings guide: “GLOBAL LAW FIRM NETWORKS: An Introduction to Global Market Leaders”. In the introduction, TAGLaw discusses the challenges faced by law firms in 2021 and what the future holds for firms, alliances, and networks.

Through TAGLaw® our clients can be assured of getting advice from 9,500 trusted reliable professionals in over 90 countries. We can also reach a trusted network of UK firms and specialists for support.”
