"Mercer & Hole (London, England - TIAG) are delighted to have been able to assist a financially distressed charity client of Clarkslegal (Reading, England). The charity employed almost 400 staff to care for over 300 vulnerable people in over 40 residential settings on behalf of various local government authorities. Michael Sippitt of Clarkslegal and Chris Laughton, who leads our London Restructuring and Insolvency team, worked together on a strategy using direct communication and PR to have the local authorities recognize their risks and obligations. An accelerated M&A process led to a successful sale within three weeks with absolutely no disruption to the vulnerable people and their carers, and avoided a painful, disruptive and costly collapse."

“Every year, the benefits our firm receives as a TAGLaw member seem to grow, which are not just limited to quality client referrals. For example, Wyoming foreclosure law is rather unique, and when the TAGLaw firm in a neighboring state had a client with an urgent need to secure a distressed property in a remote corner of Wyoming, we were well positioned to immediately obtain a receiver and preserve assets. Wyoming is also a state with very favorable, progressive limited liability company (LLC) laws. As a result, residents of other states often seek Wyoming counsel in either forming or administering their LLCs. We have been fortunate to be called upon by TAGLaw firms as far away as the east coast to help their clients amend existing LLC operating agreements and form additional LLCs for newly acquired assets.”

“Representing an investment group here in the U.S., I am currently working with Ben Graham-Evans and Natalie Coles of Blake Morgan LLP (Southampton, England) and Romain Adam and Catherine L’Hote-Tissier of Adam & Bleser (Luxembourg) on the acquisition and follow-on lease of multiple aircraft operating in Europe. In addition, I worked with the MAQS Law Firm (Sweden), Patric Olafsson and Sten Gejrot, in particular, until the aircraft based in Sweden were removed from the transaction.
In all cases, the responses have been excellent and the guidance and recommendations directly on point. In addition, our TAGlaw firms have been able to provide timely and expert recommendations to other professionals to address additional issues, e.g., government filings and sales/use and VAT taxes. Our clients are most appreciative of the resources that we can offer through our participation in TAGLaw.”

"McLeod Law LLP ("McLeod") (Alberta Canada) has served U.S. individuals in our region to allow them to deal with issues facing their estates in Canada. Our firm also assists Canadian citizens purchasing U.S. real estate. Advice in these matters requires assistance from U.S. counsel regarding their ever-changing rules in these complex areas of law. Our affiliation with TAGLaw has offered us a new option to address these issues.
Brent Cooper, one of McLeod's TAGLaw contacts, reached out to Jim Baumgartner of Black Helterline LLP (Oregon, USA), to seek solutions to these problems. In turn, Jim introduced his colleague Dave Streicher to our Wills and Estates practice group and a great relationship was formed. Over the past years, Dave has provided extremely timely and effective advice to our lawyers allowing them to provide excellent advice to our cross border clients. This relationship has provided great success on dozens of files. We would have never experienced this type of service without our TAGLaw affiliation."
