Lex Mundi’s Equisphere connects in-house counsel with foreign law firms

Lex Mundi, the network of independent law firms, has launched Equisphere, a platform that brings members together to work for clients collectively.

The client service delivery model aims to co-ordinate cross-border legal support across the firm’s members through a combination of people, process and technology. In particular, it gives in-house lawyer direct access to local law firms in foreign jurisdictions not having to manage the delivery methods of that legal advice.

That’s why this is particularly thought for «the needs of in-house counsel to find smarter and more efficient ways to navigate their cross-border legal needs», as Helena Samaha, Lex Mundi’s president & CEO specifies. In practice, the network says this means supplying a combination of management tools, skills and staff.
