MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --The International Alliance of Law Firms, a global legal network, is proud to announce Ally Law, a new platform to support corporate clients seeking sophisticated legal services delivered with a sharp focus on value and service.
The Ally Law platform includes global client service standards, processes to evaluate satisfaction with referred matters, and a variety of substantive tools and resource materials to promote global business. This new initiative grew from The International Alliance of Law Firms' deep relationships over 25+ years and the organization's breadth of coverage, encompassing 2400 lawyers in more than 100 business centers around the world.
Ally Law President Michael Herbst, a partner in the Seattle, WA, office of Schwabe, Williamson and Wyatt comments, "Ally Law firms have been working together servicing global clients for almost a quarter century. Our new platform takes these relationships to the next level. Together, our independent firms have a value proposition commensurate with the largest integrated global law firms."
Each Ally Law firm independently sets rates appropriate to their location, which offers clients a better value for their legal services budget. Member firms also use alternative fee arrangements to provide greater predictability and savings.
"Ally Law firms offer clients broad and deep business advice and legal counsel in a variety of industries," comments Paul Franke, a partner in the Denver, CO-based firm Moye White, and chair of the team that developed Ally Law. "This local knowledge across practice and industry lines helps inform our clients when they are active outside of their home jurisdiction."
Ally Law members offer the full complement of services requisite to global law firms, including corporate and securities, environmental, intellectual property, labor, employment and employee benefits, government and regulatory, litigation and tax. Ally Law also has exceptional depth in key industry sectors, for example, healthcare, leisure and hospitality, real property and construction, retail, and technology.
"We are serious about client service," says Ally Law First Vice President Alfonso González Uribe, a partner in the Cornejo, Méndez, González & Duarte law firm, based in Mexico City. "We developed uniform service standards for all network members and a process to evaluate satisfaction with work handled through the organization. Then we vetted the standards and our evaluation process with in-house counsel from global corporations, to make sure we were on point to exceed client expectations."
Ally law firms are subject to a vetting and review process and must commit to the organization's service standards, which include written service assessments.
