In the spring of 2017, Kemp Klein was honored to join LEGUS, an international network of high quality law firms located around the world. LEGUS was founded in 1995 as a Michigan not-for-profit organization to assist law firms in better serving their clients as their needs for worldwide expertise expanded. For 20 years, LEGUS members have developed trusted, valuable and respected relationships with each other.
When client’s needs go beyond their borders, a LEGUS member can contact almost 2500 trusted lawyers to help meet those needs. LEGUS reflects a vibrant worldwide range of work and client referrals between member firms. It fosters close relationships between its members through referrals, the legal and educational programming held at LEGUS meetings, and an exchange of information focusing on member law firm issues.
In the short time Kemp Klein has been a member of LEGUS, we have been able to assist clients, through other LEGUS member firms, with matters in other states and countries. Finding a law firm to make a referral to, especially where one actually knows the other firms, has been made much easier via LEGUS. In one instance we were able to retain competent counsel in Singapore in short order to address a crucial, time sensitive, client need.
