“Alex Lever of Nysingh (Netherlands) referred a client to us last year who was looking to acquire a competitor in British Columbia. The acquired firm also had employees in Wisconsin, and we were able to retain von Briesen to look after US employment and corporate matters there. The client subsequently hired a North American director of sales from a competitor out of New Jersey. We were also able to retain Bressler, Amery & Ross in New Jersey to look after the employment matters and restrictive covenant issues that arose in that jurisdiction. The client was extremely pleased with the exceptional service they received from TAGLaw firms.”

“Guerrero Olivos is a top-tier Chilean firm with which we are glad to have built a robust and, hopefully, longstanding relationship. One of their clients wanted to terminate its distribution relationship with a Uruguayan distributor. The distributor rejected the termination notice and threatened to promote legal actions before the Uruguayan Courts. After several months of diligent collaboration, including various pre-notices, arduous negotiations, and conciliation proceedings, Guerrero’s client managed to successfully terminate its relationship with the local distributor through a favorable out-of-court settlement. We believe that this is a great example of what we can achieve through this excellent legal alliance which is TAGLaw. This is the reason why we encourage and endorse the cooperation between all TAGLaw members.”

“Karla Vehrs of Lindquist & Vennum helped our firm secure a victory for a North Carolina airplane parts manufacturer in federal court in Minnesota on a Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction. Karla was a pleasure to work with and helped us navigate the case to victory in an unfamiliar jurisdiction. When the need for Minnesota local counsel arose, I turned to my law partner Mark Thomas who has been one of our firm’s long time TAGLaw representatives. I’m honored that Mark is passing the TAGLaw baton to me in 2016. I look forward to carrying the TAGLaw banner at Williams Mullen along with International Tax Partner Anna Derewenda, who practices in the Williams Mullen’s Richmond Office, and will replace Ron Raxter, another long time TAGLaw representative for Williams Mullen.”

“In May 2015 Scottish Members Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (TIAG) and Burness Paull LLP (TAGLaw) were co-principal sponsors and hosts of the TAG Alliances International Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. Over the course of the conference there were numerous opportunities for networking and the topics of the various sessions and presentations included the future of Europe, cross-border dispute resolution as well as firm and practice development, hosted by several key and influential speakers.
We were delighted to have been able to participate in the conference which provided an excellent platform for the TAG Alliances to get together to discuss topical issues and developments while sharing knowledge, best practices and strengthening relationships.
It is fantastic to be actively involved in this alliance which brings so many benefits to the firms within it and their clients."

“We received a call from California TAGLaw counsel at Coblentz, Patch, Duffy & Bass LLP (San Francisco, California, USA) when one of their clients in the financial industry was facing significant litigation in a consumer fraud case. We were offered the opportunity to have members of our litigation team meet with the client and its counsel and that led to our being retained to defend the litigation. This has been one of the largest matters referred to us through TAGLaw and further proves the value of membership.”
