In today’s increasingly global world, working across various different jurisdictions is becoming an unavoidable reality for any sizeable law firm to meet clients’ international expansion demands. Some firms seek to resolve this need by choosing a lawyer or a firm in a different jurisdiction to work with on a case-by-case basis. Others go a step further and form “best friends” or non-exclusive association relationships with lawyers and firms from other jurisdictions. Larger international firms go even further and acquire local practices or set up their own offices.
We believe in alliances. Not all types of alliances, though. We believe in an alliance that respects and preserves the independence and autonomy of the lawyers and firms from different jurisdictions in which every lawyer shares the same values of the highest professionalism, excellence, knowledge, dedication, honesty, and service to the client.
Our concept of alliance involves the long term sharing of people, knowledge, and information, where lawyers are able to work together with a single purpose no matter what separates them.
In our concept of the alliance, geographical distance, languages, and even cultural differences are just small obstacles easy to overcome whenever the same fundamental values are shared by everyone. Unsurprisingly, these were the foundations on which we have formed and over the years built our own alliance, the Miranda Alliance.
