Critical Mass Connected
Critical mass of people means we offer heavyweight practice area and sector expertise. Each of our firms is well-connected in their countries and communities, an advantage shared with our clients. And each of our members is well-connected to each other through regular networking and ongoing work. Between us we speak over 40 languages and advise a range of clients from the world's largest multinationals and public sector organisations to owner managed businesses and entrepreneurs.
The Best of the Best
Within their countries, our members rank in the top 10% of their country's legal league tables and each enjoys a leading reputation for their strength in commercial, corporate and litigation. We vet and audit members so clients don't have to. A commitment to independence is matched by a commitment to the highest compliance and client service standards. MI members have a vested interest in their clients' success.
