International

Our clients are facing the challenges of the global market and this requires us to be able to serve their cross border needs. Rather than opening our own offices around the world, we consider that the most effective way to serve our clients’ international needs is by investing time and energy in getting to know firms that have a track record of great client service in their home jurisdictions – to compete globally, our clients need to have an edge locally.

Being able to call on a network of independent law firms allows our clients a flexible alternative to the global law firm model and just as the foundation for good service for our clients is built on strong relationships, so it is among the lawyers in our networks who know one another both professionally and socially.

iGLOBAL

In addition to mainstream UK employment law we have established iGlobal Law, a specialist subsidiary advising global companies on international labour and compliance law issues.

iGlobal provides a single contact point service covering over 70 jurisdictions worldwide.

It’s experience and knowledge of the world’s labour and compliance laws means it is able to answer legal questions quickly and cost effectively, bringing in and managing leading local expertise where required.

TELFA

Thirty years ago, Wedlake Bell was a founder member of the Trans European Law Firm Alliance (TELFA) which has independent member firms in twenty five countries throughout Europe and since 2007.

TELFA has had a close working relationship with USLAW NETWORK Inc, a network of more than 70 independent firms in the US, Canada, South and Central America.

Richard Isham, one of our partners, is the current president of TELFA.

USA - USLAW

In today’s global marketplace, legal needs often transcend geographic boundaries. Clients with complex needs turn to USLAW NETWORK (USLAW) member firms to represent them in the courtroom and the boardroom, next door and across the United States and around the world.

USLAW is an international organization composed of more than 70 independent, full practice firms across the U.S., Canada, South and Central America.

INDIA GROUP

Kim Lalli founded Wedlake Bell’s India Group in 2007. Since then, the group has expanded and developed strong links between the UK and the Indian business community. The group comprises around 15 lawyers from across the firm, mostly corporate, real estate, employment, commercial litigation, intellectual property and private client.

We travel to the region frequently to advance opportunities and meet clients. The firm has forged close relationships with leading and expert accountancy, legal and other professional advisers in India and several of our lawyers are fluent in Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi and Urdu.

We are a member of the UK Indian Business Council and we have been recognised by the India Business Law Journal as one of the top law firms active in India from 2015 – 2017. We are also recognised by the Legal 500 as one of the leading foreign firms in India.

In June 2017 we hosted the London edition of the “Leading the Family Business” series along with Family and Business (FAB) who advise family businesses of Indian origin.
