Mackrell International (MI) has secured its fifth consecutive ranking in the Chambers Directory as a world-leading global network. Leading independent law firm BTO Solicitors LLP is the only Scottish member.
BTO Solicitors LLP, which has been a member of MI for twelve years, is one of more than 90 members representing 4,500 lawyers working in 60 countries. The firm joined MI in 2005 to provide clients with a high quality global legal service.
BTO’s key MI contact, partner Jeremy Glen, said: “So much of our business is increasingly global and belonging to a quality network like MI means that we can provide all our clients with the best possible international advice. MI is an extension of our business and that’s a valuable service to clients.”
Clive Mieville, managing director of MI, added: “This kind of acknowledgement in a leading directory is testament to the growing power of international networks as alternative to global law firms. Clients can be reassured about the work and commitment to quality of all our member firms.”
The network has boosted its coverage in Africa with new members in Ghana and Tanzania, added Costa Rica to the South American offering and can now provide pan-Australian coverage through Hive Legal in Melbourne.
25% of MI member firms are ranked in the Chambers directories including 232 leading individuals.
