“This is a developing story...because of our firms expertise in religious and charitable organizations, Robert Levy of Kuits Solicitors in Manchester, England contacted me following the Edinburgh Conference to discuss the need of a potential client--a large religious charity based in India, which was looking to expand into North America. When I spoke to the client, it became apparent they needed initial help to consolidate thier legal identity in India before moving into other countries. I reached out to TAGLaw Member firm Kochhar & Co. in India to help them prior to resuming their push into the U.S. The client has appreciated the level of expertise we have and the willingness we have shown to share contacts in order to get the work done! We anticipate this will develop into work for all three TAGLaw firms: Kuits, Kirton McConkie and Kochhar & Co.!”

“At the Edinburgh Conference, Paul Tauber of Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass LLP (San Francisco, California, USA) asked me if we had someone who could help with a transaction that involved a Kansas company. I put him in touch with Doug Silvius and they recently completed this matter. I know Paul was very pleased with the cooperation and skill Doug brought to the deal and we hope it will continue with on-going work for the Kansas client. ”

“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.”

“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."
