Love it or hate it, good lawyers and attorneys come into their own in boom times and in bad.
And we’re certainly going through tough times across the world right now.
When navigating uncharted and stormy waters, personally or professionally, legal frameworks and legal advice can provide clarity and structure.
To help you, your employees, your family and your business, the Mackrell International legal network is still very much open for business.
The beauty of the network is that we are powerfully connected across the globe, both experienced and agile. With 4,500 lawyers and almost 100 law firms in more than 65 countries, we are still working to maintain our vital legal and corporate infrastructure, both internationally and in local markets.
We cover everything from Force Majeure to contract and employment law, to data and privacy and GDPR; we are there when you need financing and investment or restructuring – we cover almost every business sector, even the emerging ones like start-ups, cryptocurrency and cannabis – and we can also advise you with your major personal milestones.
The fact we are a network of high-calibre, medium-sized and independent firms linked by bonds of trust, friendship and mutual understanding, means we adapt quicker than most and we can be strong yet flexible to meet your needs.
As a network, we came together, ‘shoulder to shoulder’, screen to screen, to celebrate the diversity and unity of the Mackrell International global family at the 2020 ‘AGM in the Cloud’.
This was our biggest gathering ever, but one where the only handshake, hug, or kiss on the cheeks was virtual. And where many of us had to remain silent for a large part.
But – when we unmuted all at once to say hello to one another - what an unleashing of energy, a vibrant wall of noise and greeting and connection. It’s testament to the friendship, trust and mutual appreciation that connect us, that we could link arms, ‘Auld Lang Syne’ style from early morning in the West Coast of the Americas to late night in our furthest reaches of Asia Pacific.
And we opened the ‘Virtual AGM’ a treasure trove of virtual ‘rooms’ like the Houses of Parliament, Galactic Cabin and International Suite, containing insight, information and legal input from many sectors and corners of the network, plus reflections from our leaders.
We reminded ourselves of previous AGMs, of how amazing London is (to inspire us for London 2021) and the fact that as a network, we’ve #gotitcovered.
And we looked to the future - with the strengthening of our Next Generation network, the launch of a Female Lawyer network and welcoming our flurry of new ‘family members’ across the world.
With our ‘Global Reach and Local Knowledge’ Mackrell International’s worldwide family of lawyers bring you invaluable insight and legal advice on handling the Coronavirus crisis.
We have curated a series of articles, advice and solutions to the legal questions raised by an ever-changing situation and in a raft of complicated areas.
We are pleased to bring this all together for you in one place to help you and your clients keep business running, structure personal affairs and navigate the ups and downs of legislation.
For all Mackrell International law firms it is business as usual in the service of our clients.
