Chambers rankings are the definitive mark of excellence across the legal industry and highlight those firms, networks and individuals that have stood out as the best in the field in the most rigorous, independent, and in-depth research process of any legal directory on the market.
In order to be ranked as a Leading Law Firm Network, the network should exist without relying on a central law firm, must position itself as a cost-effective alternative to an international law firm with many international branches and, if effective, should help members generate cross-referral work and benefit clients when combining solutions when work crosses borders.
Founded in 1979, and with 210 member firms (including 84 law firms) in 94 countries Alliott Global Alliance is an international alliance of independent, law, accounting, and specialist advisory firms, working across the world Together as One. AGA’s ranking in this section is contingent on the rankings, and the ranking strength, of its member firms across the various Chambers Guides.
“We are honoured to be recognised by Chambers in this elite category and to enter straight into Band 1 alongside a small number of prestigious law firm networks,” said Giles Brake, Alliott Global Alliance CEO.
“AGA has law firm members that extend deep into Europe, Africa, the Middle East, North America, Latin America and the Asia Pacific region, and our lawyers serve clients in 300+ locations around the world. We have worked diligently to build our alliance organically and to raise the standards required to become and remain a member firm. Furthermore, our Together as One service model ensures clients can count on a leading mid-size, independent law firm to represent them all over the world and ensure service is of a consistently high standard wherever it is needed. This is a wonderful seal of approval for the alliance, our member firms and our London based Executive Office team.”
AGA is now one of the largest professional services alliances in Africa with coverage in 19 countries: Algeria, Botswana, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Libya, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
