Founded in 1990, the International Alliance of Law Firms is an affiliation of prominent law firms represented across the globe that provides clients a rapid and effective response to their international business challenges. The Alliance has 63 member firms with over 100 offices in 45 countries and is expanding.
After the Alliance’s standard and rigorous year-long vetting process — which includes close reviews of practice standards, professional ethics, control procedures, accounts review, practitioners’ qualifications, site visits, management interviews, and client reviews — Duensing Kippen was invited to and accepted such invitation to join the Alliance as its sole member firm in Thailand in May 2014. Jerrold Kippen, one of Duensing Kippen’s co-founding partners,recently returned from the Alliance’s Annual General Partner’s Meeting, held this year in Seattle, USA, 27 – 31 May, 2014 and commented:
“We are excited to have joined the Alliance. Previously we have always demurred from any reference to our firm being “international” simply because we had clients from more than one country. This changes that. Although each firm in the Alliance is independent, we are now as — perhaps more — tightly networked and connected internationally than the few global law firm brands operating in Thailand that share the same singular branding but which charge significantly more as aresult of this brandingfor the same services. It does mean a significant commitment for us in terms of annual compliance reviews, as well as, the mandatory global and regional meetings and monthly telephonic practice conferences. However, the quality of attorneys and staff in the Alliance is truly impressive and top-tier. With our new global footprint, we are now able to provide our clients with high quality legal services worldwide.”
