The Joining Process

Multilaw member firms are carefully chosen


Multilaw member firms are carefully chosen.  To be invited to membership, a firm must not only have the highest standards of ethics and quality, it must also be able to service the full needs of the typical international business client and have a good personality fit with the member firms.  It is Multilaw’s philosophy that the best professional relationships are based on the closest personal ties and our activities and programmes reflect this.

As part of the due diligence procedure a firm is required to complete a membership application questionnaire.  Following receipt of the questionnaire, the firm will be visited by two representatives including a member of Multilaw’s Board.

Information received from the application questionnaire and firm visit will be assessed and a decision will be made as to whether the firm should be recommended for membership.

The recommendation shall be circulated to the Multilaw Board with a request that confidential comments be provided to the Multilaw Global Office within 7 days.

Providing positive comments are received, the recommendation of the Multilaw Board shall be circulated to all member firms with a request that confidential comments be provided to the Executive Director within 14 days.

If an objection is received, the Multilaw Board shall then make a final determination regarding whether to admit the prospective member.  Otherwise membership will take effect upon receipt of payment of the joining fee and annual subscription fee.

All membership enquiries should be directed in the first instance to the Executive Director, Adam Cooke at adam.cooke@multilaw.com
