About Global Law Experts

The premier guide to leading legal professionals throughout the world

Global Law Experts (GLE) is the premier guide to leading attorneys throughout the world. We are the only organisation to recommend just one legal expert in each key practice area and country. We do this to avoid repetition, competition and extensive comparative research when selecting external legal counsel.

All GLE endorsed lawyers must be either recommended, personally apply or be selected by Global Law Experts’ research department before they are given the opportunity to feature and be profiled on the website. It is not possible to simply buy entry onto GLE. Applicants go through an intensive research process before being passed onto the Nominations Panel for final assessment and validation. Only then are lawyers invited to join Global Law Experts and thus be endorsed by our organisation.

Global Law Experts has become a valuable tool for business leaders, in-house counsel, high net-worth individuals, operations directors, investors, accountants, banks, and the general population looking for quality legal advice in all corners of the world and in all relevant fields. We now recommend over 2,000 lawyers from 140 countries in over 50 practice areas.

It’s often easy to assume bigger means better, but that is not always the case with law firms; boutique practices specialise in just one legal field and as a result can often offer the same (if not better) advice on a more personal level at a typically lower hourly rate – Global Law Experts looks at the independent lawyers and law firms as well as the full service ‘big players’ in the market to showcase an in-depth cross section of quality international advisers to suit a variety of needs and budgets.

Anyone involved in business or independently may need to gain legal advice at some juncture of their life, whether it be Real Estate advice for a new office purchase, M&A guidance for company expansion or Personal Injury representation in the event of a slip or fall. Our simple yet effective search system allows users to identify a credible legal adviser instantly for the field and geographical location required.

GLE is designed to make the arduous process of searching for a competent legal expert on a global level as straightforward as possible with no fees or delays.

The initial contact can often be the most difficult part of selecting new legal counsel; GLE gives its users all the necessary details and information to get in touch with the relevant individual and firm. We therefore offer a valuable first step, without the need to spend valuable time and money on internal research as this has already been carried out by GLE’s extensive and experienced research teams.
