Why Legalign Global?
Legalign Global was formed to meet the legal needs of the growing multinational insurance markets as insurers increasingly provide services in multiple international locations or manage them as part of global insurance programs.
Legalign Global, unlike other networks of loosely affiliated law firms, is a closely-knit, integrated alliance with a uniform global service charter. This ensures that all five member firms deliver consistent, best-in-region service to our clients, in compliance with service legal expectations.
