Why You Can Have Confidence in the Quality of Lex Mundi Firms 

 

Recruiting Standards and Procedures 


We employ a rigorous method of selecting and admitting new member firms. Potential members of our global network are evaluated on criteria that include quality, responsiveness, ability to provide a full range of legal services, reputation, use of technology, management structure, training programs and ethical standards. 


Membership Review Policy and Procedures 


While we apply high standards when approving membership, we also acknowledge that changes can occur in firms over time. To assure that our members continue to be the most highly regarded firms in their jurisdictions – and that they remain committed to providing responsive, exceptional legal services – we regularly review each firm. If a firm does not meet our established criteria, membership is not renewed. 


Service Standards 


Each member firm adheres to a general service philosophy as well as to specific standards, such as responding to a request the next business day or sooner. This provides clients (as well as referring members) with the assurance and confidence of knowing they will receive consistently high levels of skills and service. 


Involvement of Clients 


We have formed a Client Advisory Council to provide critical feedback directly from in-house counsel of multinational corporations on the best ways to serve clients and to offer ongoing advice on Lex Mundi policies and projects for consideration. 


Professional Development Support 


Our professional development team and professional development committee assist member firms in acquiring, developing and continuously improving the knowledge and professional skills of their lawyers to better serve the global needs of clients.
