March 4, 2019

Glenn M. Cunningham, Shipman & Goodwin partner and the current Chair of elite global network Interlaw, makes the case that the opportunities and expertise provided by increasingly sophisticated global networks position mid-sized firms to compete for and deliver top-end work.

In “How the Rise of the Legal Network is Powering Mid-Sized Law Firms,” an article Mr. Cunningham authored for The American Lawyer, he discusses the benefits both firms and clients gain from embracing global networks as a favorable alternative to the traditional law firm model.

Through membership in and collaboration with a sophisticated global network such as Interlaw, mid-sized firms earn a significant advantage in their domestic markets by drawing upon expertise that gives them the capacity to undertake complex cross-border work as well as offer clients high-value, high-quality legal services. Clients benefit from access to talented lawyers around the world who can handle even the most demanding multi-jurisdictional scope and provide consistent, seamless service -- all while avoiding avoid the top fees charged by large international firms.
