“The most beneficial aspects of TAG Alliances membership are not simply the incoming referrals themselves, but also opportunities from the doors members can open that would otherwise take years to get through, if ever. Last year, one of the world’s leading luxury goods companies was referred to Blaney by Racine (Paris, France - TAGLaw). The company was one we had been looking to work with for quite some time. Our issue was somehow getting in the door that first time.
The company was looking for advice on how to shut down a vile anonymous internet attack campaign that it believed was being undertaken by a disgruntled former employee whose last known whereabouts was in Toronto. The company wanted to obtain details from Google and Microsoft that would allow it to identify the former employee. Blaney’s commercial litigation and IT group were retained, and successfully obtained the data needed to identify the culprit and cease the attack. This led to a meeting with the company’s lead counsel based in London. We are hopeful this will lead to many more opportunities, but that first door never would have been opened without that initial referral from Racine.
TAG Alliances is constantly providing such opportunities that are just waiting to be seized by its members.”
